Our tour will begin at 11.00am and we will meet in the Castle café at 10.00am, so there will be an opportunity for coffee and a chat before we start the tour.
We will be keeping the cost down by travelling by cars rather than a coach. (Can you offer a lift? Do you need a lift?)
The cost of the tour is £6.50 per person.
