The Christmas Tour

About

Stroll around the city centre with your Guide, keeping dry in the Rows if necessary, and explore the meaning behind all those rituals, customs and beliefs at this special time of year:

- did you know you are technically breaking the law every time you wish someone Merry Christmas?

- have you ever wondered why the Three Kings chose the gifts of Gold, Frankincense and Myrhh?

- and you won't believe what used to pass as a tasty Christmas dinner in days gone by!

Tours depart form the Town Hall Visitor Information Centre and are approximately 90 minutes in duration.
