The most informative walking tour we've ever been on.
Bryan was very pleasant and friendly. What he doesn't know of about Winchester probably isn't worth knowing. We spent a couple of hours trying to absorb the huge amount of information Bryan imparted.
We have been on a few city walking tours now and can honestly say that Bryan Walsh was the most informative.

Just the ticket. Bryan, our enthusiastic guide, was very friendly and knowledgeable. We touched on History, Literature and even, a wee bit of Popular culture. The 2 hour walk, sped by and we did not even notice the grey, misty weather. Our 36 hour Winchester trip, was made by the compelling stories of its past, as told by Bryan. Thank you.

Very little money and well worth it
Oct 2021 • Couples
Excellent historical knowledge of not only Winchester but seemingly the entire history of England. The tour was a perfect 2 hour walk around some of the most beautiful and historical spots in the city. Brian was a great friendly and very witty guide and we thoroughly enjoyed it. Very little money and well worth it!

The Tour is a Winn(chest)er
Oct 2021
We lucked out with the weather and Bryan was a great tour guide. We were returning to Winchester after 5 years away but the tour was well balanced for newcomers and returning visitors alike. Bryan is very knowledgeable about this great city and makes you feel at ease over the couple of hour whistle stop through Winchester's history.

We joined the group being led by Patrick. It took about 2 hours and it was incredibly informative about Winchester. Patrick was extremely knowledgable and definitely knows his history!
