  • The tour is approximately 2 hours 30 minutes and is 1.1 miles in length.

  • We will be walking on cobbles and some uneven ground which includes short hills through the city.

  • Unfortunately, the route is not wheelchair accessible. We will encounter one small descending set of stairs to the bridge and some sloping, uneven terrain around the route.

  • We will spend approximately 20 minutes in each of the four pubs, depending on how busy it is. At the end of the tour, visitors are welcome to stay in the last pub for as long as they wish!

  • The ticket price includes a half pint of cask ale or kegged beer, lager or cider. Tickets will be issued at the start of the tour and these can be redeemed in each pub.

  • The maximum number of visitors on each tour is limited to 10. This will help to ensure quality of experience and keep crowding of the pubs to a minimum.  

  • Cancellations must be made no later than 24 hours before the tour is due to start. If you cancel after this time, a refund cannot be given.
