This guided walk starts outside the Maids Head Hotel in Tombland, the 10th century Anglo-Danish Market Place, then heads along the river from the Quayside, the original Anglo-Scandinavian port, passing St James’ Mill, Cow Tower and Bishop’s Bridge to Pull’s Ferry, the Cathedral’s 15th century water gate. Hear about historic trade and industry, including the role of the wherry and the story of the Great Hospital. Return to Tombland through the Cathedral Close and finish the tour with coffee or tea at the Maids Head Hotel, which claims to be the oldest in the UK.
