Hertford's Pubs & History Tour - English Tourism Week Special Sat Apr 1st
Sat, April 1, 2017, 12:00 PM – 4:00 PM BST
Hertford is a stunningly beautiful and historic County town with hundreds of listed buildings, four rivers, some fantastic pubs and it is just 50 minutes by train from Moorgate or Liverpool Street.
This special tour for English Tourism Week is being run in conjunction with Hertford Town and Tourist Information Centre and will include some places not typically open to the public.
During our afternoon we'll wander through the town, see the end of the navigable Lee River, the remains of a Castle which was the country retreat of numerous monarchs and one time home to Parliament. We'll pass many examples of 15th and 16th century architecture and an amazing 19th Century brewery. We will also look at the miniature local version of a Georgian “Egyptian Hall”, as well as the splendid Adam Shire Hall and much much more. En route we will refresh ourselves in four of the loveliest pubs in the area.
After the tour you'll have time to return to anywhere that caught your eye, shop in the local market, browse the numerous independent shops or have a meal in one of the excellent local restaurants.
The group size will be kept deliberately small, a maximum of ten people, to encourage a convivial and chatty atmosphere.
This tour will last approximately 4 hours.
The tour starts near Hertford North Station and finishes near Hertford East Station.
The tour is fully accessible but there are some kerbs and narrow pavements, please contact us if you want to talk in more detail about accessibility.
Food and drink are not included in the price.
This walk is not suitable for under 18s on account of the pub stops.
