It is well worth going on this fascinating walking tour. Cindy our guide has so much knowledge on the history of Sherborne. She is passionate about her subject and very entertaining. Cindy's tips and suggestions were extremely helpful and gave us lots of ideas of what else we could do in Sherborne and the local area.
We highly recommend this tour.
We (as members of Wimborne NWR) enjoyed a really enjoyable guided walk round Sherborne. Our leader, Cindy Chant, was very knowledgeable and entertaining. More importantly, she made our walk come to life so we learnt a lot about the past and present history of this...More

Have just this weekend enjoyed the most unique, informative and enjoyable guided walk around Sherborne with Cindy Chant. I do not think I have remained so enthused throughout a nearly 3 hour walk around a town before, despite rather inclement weather. Cindy is full of...More
We had a personalised tour with Cindy as there were no other takers on that morning! Very glad we did as Cindy was wonderful. Very informative and made the town tour so much fun whilst imparting the benefit of her vast knowledge of the town. Everyone seemed to know her!!
She pointed our many things of interest and gave us tips on where to go and what to look for. She gave us a really good historical background to all the places we went to or passed by. She also recommended other things to do, including going to a little village called Trent, a few miles NW of Sherborne which has a very interesting church and a great pub!
Don't expect a tour of the Abbey as, to quote her, "they're a bit snotty" about tour guides as they have their own Abbey tour!
After 3 hours, we only completed Part 1 of her tour (there are 2 more!)
Very much recommended and brought the town to life.
She can be contacted direct if you want a personal tour (£8/pp) on firstname.lastname@example.org More
