A HISTORY WALK WITH BEER INCLUDED!
Our history tour of medieval Norwich boasts a difference - we go to the pub!
Hosted by experienced guide Duncan, the History and Hostelries Walking Tour is relaxed and sociable. Progressing at a relaxed pace, you will hear how the city has developed over two millennia.
We encounter magnificent Norman structures, preserved Tudor streets and medieval plague pits - and like every history tour, there's the odd ghost story! You may also be surprised by Norwich’s many famous ’firsts’, famous people and world-famous businesses.
Our special interest is the business of beer, an important element of Norwich past and present. So (for educational purposes of course) we will stop off at a few notable pubs to experience a little of what CAMRA calls "The City of Ale”.
We meet at Pulls Ferry, one of the iconic historical sites of Norwich, to gain an overview of the origins of the City and its development up to the arrival of the Normans. Then off we go on our wander. There's no rush, it's your leisure time so we proceed at the group’s pace. Tours often take 3 to 4 hours - like it says, relaxed!
Norwich is a compact city so no need for hiking boots. No flasks of tea either - remember, drinks in the featured pubs are included!
A fine introduction to our Fine City!
Some small print stuff!
Children are welcome but, whilst not a 'pub-crawl', the tour is designed for adults.
The venues we visit will always try to assist with accessibility issues but please bear in mind that historical sites often cannot be adapted to cater for all needs.
As for the en-route refreshment, one drink per person at each of the featured pubs is included in the tour price, each up to the approximate cost of a pint of real ale (though feel free to order your own choice of tipple).
This adventure is perfect for individuals and small groups, and can be tailored for:
