Green Walks from the City: Discover Wolsey Walk (please pre-book)

Sunday 27th May 2018, 11:00 - 13:30

Green Walks from the City: Discover Wolsey Walk (moderate pace)
Sunday 27th May only
Starts 11am (for 2.5 hours). Please arrive 10 minutes early.
From the New Market Square, meeting behind the Knight & Garter pub.

To launch our Sunday ‘Green Walks from the City’ series, this group walk heads to Abbey Park to discover two famous Wolseys – the 16th century Cardinal buried in the abbey grounds and the 19th-20th century hosiery manufacturer of the same name. The walk returns via New Market Square by 1.15pm, with the option to continue to New Walk Museum for the ‘Wolsey Angels’ temporary exhibition afterwards.

Unlike our usual walks, places must be pre-booked on the Eventbrite website, as numbers will be limited. The walk remains free of charge.
