When I return, everything will feel new & undiscovered again because Alex really opened my eyes to what was around me. Her knowledge brings the surroundings alive and her passion leaves you energised & hopeful for the future of culture in this country - even during a pandemic! A brilliant person you want with you everywhere. I hope I get to do more tours with her"

Covid-19

Resuming private and public tours

The UK government has confirmed that we are allowed to conduct tours in person, provided a full risk assessment is completed. Having looked carefully at the risks, I have decided to limit the size of all groups to 12 participants, whether public or private groups.

The new 'rule of six' does not affect businesses or outdoor walking tours, so long as they have been planned in a Covid-19 secure manner. Therefore I am continuing to offer tours with a maximum of 12 participants. This is in connection with a completed risk assessment which you can find by clicking here

I am dedicated to keeping you and me as safe as possible on our tour, and am adhering to the Visit England safety guidelines. I am 'Good To Go'!
