From Royal capital to global trading ports and great ecclesiastical centres southern England has a range of fascinating cities to explore on foot. My walking tours uncover fascinating stories of the people and history behind the buildings, monuments and culture we find.
Bath Walking Tours
The magnificent city of Bath is a World Heritage Site set in the southern Cotswold Hills is renowned for its glorious Georgian architecture and remarkable Roman Baths. Join this walking tour to discover the stories of the characters, lives and events behind and below the grand facades. We explore the Royal Crescent, the Circus, Pulteney Bridge and the ancient core of the city around the Abbey, the thermal springs and the spa centre.
Somerset Country towns
This small market town has the sense of quiet country life sustained by the people and countryside around. Yet Somerton was once capital of the Anglo-Saxon kingdom of Wessex, its position on a defendable hilltop witness to less stable times. Its name is intrinsically linked with the county of Somersetshire; the home of the Summer people. Nowadays the quiet of Broad Street and Cow Square tell of centuries of good farming on the Somerset soils and a thriving market economy. On this walking tour we explore the squares, alleyways and buildings of the town to uncover the stories of the people who made Somerton as we see it and those from times before written memory. On market days we finish our tour with an introduction to local produce and foodie treats.
