Join a guided tour of Farnham
Explore the hidden charms of Farnham
Join a local guide to discover more about the history of our lovely ‘Georgian’ town. The walks are led by enthusiastic and experienced local guides who will relate the history and architecture of the attractive small town ranging from the Stone Age, through to the Anglo Saxon, Norman and Georgian periods, via the time when Farnham was the centre of hop production and brewing, returning to the present day!
The guided walk is the perfect opportunity to experience Farnham’s past and present.
The guides will point out many of the interesting historical and architectural gems of the town that can be easily missed.
Walks include St. Andrew’s churchyard, The Borough, imposing Castle Street with superb views of the Castle (home to the Bishops of Winchester for over 800 years) and Georgian West Street, including the Museum of Farnham.
The walk covers 2-3 miles and lasts approximately one and a half to two hours.
Regrettably shortage of time prohibits inclusion of interiors as part of the walk.
Come along to join us on any first Sunday of each month throughout the year and meet one of the team of Farnham Town Guides who will lead you on a walk (one of a variety which intentionally varies in detail) around the centre of Farnham engaging in its history, architecture and points of interest.
The cost is £3 per head - proceeds are donated to local charities.
* Walks for Private Groups can be organised on other dates.
* Children who are accompanied by an adult are welcome.
* Walks can also be tailored to meet the needs of visitors with walking difficulties (advanced notice is preferred).
