There will usually be one general walk 'Harleston Highlights' covering the history of the town through its buildings and local stories, and one special walk with emphasis on a particular subject.

June 9: Harleston Highlights
In many old guide books Harleston is described as being a town of Georgian and Victorian houses.  Whilst the centre of the town looks like this is the case, in reality the buildings are far older - but hidden!  What we see here is just a facade, beneath which the Harleston of the 1300s to 1600s remains!  It just has to be discovered. Join this walk to discover the unique story of the town.

Unless otherwise noted, all walks are priced at £4.00 per adult, children under 15 accompanied by an adult go free. No need to book, just turn up in the courtyard to The Swan Hotel at 14:00

23 June: Ye Olde Pub Walk
Half Moons, Dragons, Magpies and Eagles are in the mix for this colourful part of Harleston's past. What is more, they were controlled by wheelwrights, harness makers and maltsters.  Whatever else the people of Harleston may have lacked, it was not the opportunity to quench their thirst!  Pubs, beer houses and breweries abounded. Most of the old buildings are still here – if you know where to look.  This walk will give a fascinating insight into a small part of Harleston history.

Unless otherwise noted, all walks are priced at £4.00 per adult, children under 15 accompanied by an adult go free. No need to book, just turn up in the courtyard to The Swan Hotel at 14:00
