During the tour the guide will explain how the city grew to be one of the wealthiest in the country and will show you the medieval homes of the wool merchants who were responsible for this prosperity.

See the world famous Doom painting in the parish church of St Thomas and the store where the Duke of Buckingham’s ghost haunts the Blue Boar Inn.
