Numbers on each tour are strictly limited and pre-booking is strongly recommended to reserve your place.  This can be done:

All tours depart from the Town Well, Castle Street (TN36 4EL), starting promptly at 11am and last for up to 1.5  hours.  The charge is £10 per person (children free).  Simply pay your guide, in cash please, on the day.

Please note that some cellars have difficult access and are not suitable for those with mobility problems.   We ask you please to wear sensible shoes and, if possible, to carry a torch, and to listen carefully to all safety advice from your volunteer guide.  We regret that we cannot accommodate dogs or very small children.

  • In addition to our public tours, we are also able to offer private tours for clubs, societies and special interest groups.  Please get in touch if you would like to discuss this – contact details as above.
