I have a Birthday party for my 13 year old coming up, is the tour suitable for young people?
I have been conducting tours for over 20 years and have had many groups of youngsters, all have said how much they have enjoyed it. If you have a group of 15 or more please call our information line on 0845 519 0267 and speak to our bookings unit. We can also include a meal after the tour, if required. We have access to a variety of venues all of chich are happy to cater for a younger audience with advanced notice.
To get the best from the tour it is advisiable to book a special tour just for you and your party otherwise you run the risk of joining a public tour and the stories may be a little too complex for younger minds to digest. I am always happy to discuss you requirements, just call and we will give you a party to remember for all the right reasons.
Do we go inside buildings on the tour?
Sadly, due to the nature of Public Liablity and other risks, we no longer take people inside the buildings on the tour. It is a walking tour and there will be some standing around and listening to the stories - all based on my own experiences and the history of the city.
What happens if I have booked a tour and paid but it is raining?
I never cancell for rain - as I like to say - 'it goes right through a ghost', although rain is a problem for my clients, in the event of a torrential downpour there are always places we can wait untill it passes over. If it loooks like it is going to rain, bring a brolly and wrap up against the cold. In the 20 years I have been trading I have conducted the tour in snow, ice, heavy rain and thunder and lightneing. The show must go on!
What are the ages of Children etc?
Children are regarded as 5-15 years - under 5's are free
Concessions are full-time students with a valid Student ID and Pensioners (i.e. Those Collecting a state pension - in the UK currently this is Men 65yrs + and Women 60+)
Is the tour suitable for wheelchair access?
Yes - the tour is all on city streets - and is fully acessable to wheelchair users, there are some areas with cobbled ground but I will always be there to help if required.
