Guided Walks of Historic Winchcombe

Free Town Walks

Free Town Walks

The 2019 series of these popular Guided Free Town Walks start again on Easter Sunday 21 April 2019.

They take place at 11 am and 2.30pm every Sunday from Easter until October, starting at the TIC; they are for anyone, visitor or resident, who is interested in the fascinating history of Winchcombe – from ancient Saxon Borough to WW2 and beyond.Free Town Walks

They are short and easy: designed to be accessible to all, 1–1¼ hours, less than a mile, all on pavements around the town centre. The walks are led by local people who are keen to share some of the history of, and their enthusiasm for, this special place. Places are limited to about 10 or 12, but larger parties, or parties at different times, can probably be catered for if pre-booked.

We are always happy to welcome new people to join our band of enthusiastic volunteer guides. As well as sharing the story of Winchcombe it is also really interesting to meet visitors from all over the world.
SO, if you live in or near Winchcombe and are interested in its history, and can spare just a few hours a year, why not think about joining our band of volunteer guides in helping to lead these walks?

No experience is necessary; just an interest in and love of our town and a willingness to share this with visitors. You would be given training and support and be able to accompany a more experienced guide initially.
