Booking a place for individuals, friends & families

As a limited number of places is available on each walk, it is necessary to book all places in advance. Please read the information below regarding the walk before booking.

Booking information

In the light of COVID 19 we have made some adjustments to ensure that our visitors and our volunteer guides will be as safe as possible.


  • Our walking tours are now only available by booking. Booking closes 24 hours before each tour.
  • Please book one ticket per person. Unfortunately if you arrive without a ticket you will not be able to join a tour. Please have your ticket ready to show your Guide.
  • Our walking tours take place entirely outside. We will not be entering any buildings.
  • The person making the booking will be required to provide a contact email address and mobile phone number. This information will be used by the Mayor's Guides solely for the purpose of contacting visitors in the unlikely event that a walk has to be cancelled or there is a need to alert visitors to a Covid track and trace incident.
  • The maximum size of each tour group is 6 (including the Guide).
  • ALL visitors, with the exception of children under 11 and those with legitimate exemptions, MUST wear a face covering.
  • Our Guides will be wearing face shields.
  • Visitors should follow social distancing in line with current government advice.
  • Toilet facilities are unlikely to be available for the duration of the tour.
  • Stay away if you show any symptoms associated with Covid-19.

In booking your ticket(s) you AGREE that all members of your booking will fulfil the safety requirements noted above.

Please book just the tickets you need. We want you to come along, but if you need to cancel please do so using the link on your ticket(s) giving as much notice as possible. This will free up spaces for other visitors and ensure our volunteer guides don’t turn up and only then discover there is no-one waiting for a tour 😢.

Please note that we may occasionally need to split family groups or couples to avoid exceeding our maximum group size.

Thank you for your understanding and we look forward to showing you around our beautiful city.
