Our City Tours

Our tours are led by University researchers and designed to be thoughtful and engaging. Our guides walk you through the iconic city centre, covering the history of the main sites while raising questions about the impact of empire, class, gender, inequality, and wealth.

All our tours are wheelchair accessible, with places for sitting throughout. Caregivers may attend free of charge and service dogs are welcome. Let us know of any accessibility requirements when booking. Please note some mildly uneven pavement and crowding in the city centre, especially on weekends.
