Great tour
Jane_W, May 2023
The cobbled street and the exhibition was our favourite parts. The tour guide was great and very fluent in telling us the different episodes.
Perrie_K, May 2023
Thoroughly enjoyable time, the tour guide (dressed as a midwife) was excellent. She had lots of information about the different scenes throughout all of the TV series, also sharing a few jokes. Some of the souvenirs maybe could have been a bit better, there were many that didn't have the favourite/main cast members, otherwise a fantastic day.
Really worth a visit
Barry_C, May 2023

Tour and guide (Helen) excellent. Happened to be filming on the day which was an added bonus so met a few of the stars. Wonderful. Needed to know how far site was from Railway Station as we were late, which was a pity and my wife had an asthma attack on the way as the pollution + the walk was so difficult.
