We suggest you arrive at the meeting point outside the Visitor Information Centre at 15-16 Broad Street 10 minutes before the start of your tour. Please book for a later time if you may be delayed as we are unable to contact the guide once the tour has departed.
The booking will be registered under the cardholder's name.
