Special Offers

  • Kids Go Free 
    We all need to do our bit to help the visitor economy recover in 2022, so we have decided for the first time in our 40+ history to have a “kids go free” policy on all our public walking tours. We’re hoping this will help cash-strapped families to be able to participate in more things, without having to pay a premium for, or choose between, activities during their visit. Tickets for all our public walking tours will now be priced at £10 per person with up to two under 16s going free per accompanying adult.
