Our walks cost £4, which is payable on the day. The guide will be available 15 minutes before the start to collect payment – cash only please. Places are limited but you can reserve them at Ticketsource or call the Museum on 01225 751339.
These guided walks will follow routes around the town centre of Trowbridge and some of the outlying streets. They usually take around 1 hour and will predominately be on flat pavement with some short hills (Castle Street, Wicker Hill, etc.) and may include the odd diversion involving steps and uneven ground. They will not be strenuous and should be suitable for those with minor mobility issues or using mobility aids. Please wear comfortable shoes. Unfortunately dogs are not allowed. If you have any concerns please contact the Museum on 01225 751339 and we will gladly advise.
If the weather forecast is particularly bad please check our website and social media on the day in case we have to cancel the walk.
