Guided Tours

 

Join our local Blue Badge Tour Guides to experience a variety of guided walking tours based in the beautiful market town of Sherborne and beyond.

2020 Programme

Our walking tours of historic Sherborne are led by expert guides who aim to be informative and entertaining. We promote hidden corners and colourful stories which you won’t find in the guidebooks!

We can tailor your walk to suit your particular need, whether it be historical, architectural, literary or general. There’s something for everyone.

Our delightful walking tours take at least 2 hours to enjoy. With the guides enthusiasm and extensive knowledge, the extent of the walk is limited only by your interest or the time you have available, from a few hours to a whole day!
