Crime and Crinolines in Clifton

News Posted by Pete Crawford on 5 May 2021 Return to News & Events

See these Historical walks around Clifton. Having attended this walk last year I strongly recommend booking up.
The walks were also featured in the evening Post on the 30//4/21, see attached.

Clifton is ‘The handsomest suburb in Europe’ said John Betjeman.

Our new tour reveals the extraordinary people behind the elegant facades.

Fabulous buildings, scenery and stories: a jilted barmaid’s brush with death; a runaway Empress; the only forger sentenced to death to keep his head and have it on a banknote; and the Georgian terrace that housed the Holy Grail.

Starting and ending in the village, Clifton will never look the same again.

Tour takes place outdoors.
