About Our Walks

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 interest, 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!

All tours will adhere to safety measures from the ‘Covid-19 Guidance for Tour Guiding’. If you do not feel well, stay home. We will happily rearrange your booking.

Only clients who have pre-booked by 18.00 the day before a tour can join a group. Tours will consist of a maximum of 12 people plus one tour guide.

Our tours are suitable for all ages and are fully accessible.
