Please Note: As we are dependent on student volunteers to deliver these tours, there are unfortunately times when study or work commitments hinder the guides' attendance. Naturally every attempt is made to provide cover and ensure that the tour goes ahead but it is not always possible. April - June: due to holidays, closely followed by the exam period, there is likely to be a reduction in tour coverage. We apologise for any inconvenience.
