On this tour you'll discover how the son of prominent Protestants became a Catholic revolutionary. You will see where Fawkes was born and baptised and visit his school. You will hear about Catholic Martyrs tortured and executed for their faith and how Guy Fawkes and his friends from York almost succeeded in changing history.
