When and where?
The tour lasts two hours. We start from outside the main entrance of the Corn Exchange on Corn Street. We finish at 1pm amongst the food stalls of the covered Market. The perfect spot for lunch!
What distance is the tour?
One mile. We begin by taking in some amazing sites in the old town (including Blitz damage and Castle remains) before heading into the Corn Exchange/Market area. We then see WW11 air raid shelters in the basement before heading to the roof top to look down at the city and exchange hall. We'll take a look at rooms used in film and TV before finishing amongst the food stalls in the main arcade. Lots to see without much walking!
The tour costs £10 for adults and £5 for children. Bespoke bookings start at £80.
Does the tour involve staircases?
Yes. We will be heading below the streets and to the second floor of the Corn Exchange. Our route therefore involves using two sets of stairs.
Is there disabled access?
The standard public tour including the basement and upper floors is not suitable for wheelchairs however we can coordinate a route which is wheelchair friendly as part of a Bespoke tour.
What should I bring along?
Sensible shoes are recommended. We won't be walking a huge distance but it's probably best to leave your Jimmy Choos at home!
A bottle of liquid. Especially on a hot day!
An umbrella. Although we have plenty of cover we will still be taking in some fascinating sites in the historic streets surrounding St. Nicholas Market.
A camera. You never know, you might be the first one to snap Margaret our friendly ghost on film!
What about a rainy day?
We have plenty of rain cover with over 50% of the tour being undercover. Bring a brolly just in case..
