Themed Walks

Themed Walks

Our themed walks are one of the Worcester activities that get people talking!

Our qualified tour guides take you on a Worcester walking tour based on a specific historical figure, a period in time or local area of interest.

 

You could visit Elgar's Country, Evesham's Blossom Route or areas of your own choice.  And we even offer 'Armchair Walks' where our guide comes to your venue with an entertaining presentation - for a less strenuous "tour" of the city.
