Really good tour. Good start time, 645pm runs for just over an hour and a half. Tour guide Jake was really funny, had my teenage daughter in hysterics. Would recommend.

Just turn up outside the Golden Fleece Pub. They won’t take any money off you until the end of the walk. I think it’s a 7 start, but the sign is there all day giving the details. Enjoy.
