Guided tours and familiarisation visits

Our fully qualified Green Badge Guides provide city tours with optional extras such as visits to various attractions, morning coffee, afternoon tea, lunch or cream teas. Tours in some overseas languages are also available. Standard tours last around one and a half hours, but the time and topic can easily be arranged to suit each group. To see the range of tours we offer, visit our guided tours page.

We also hold familiarisation visits for group organisers every year to help group organisers find out about the attractions and facilities we offer.
