Wat je gaat doen

Starting at the White Hart pub, I'll introduce the history of Bristol from mythology through the city's important Medieval past. From here, we will walk to the Odeon Cinema, pausing on the street to hear about a grizzly happening from the 40s. This also gives us an excellent opportunity to discuss one of Bristol’s greatest contributions to the modern world... At the top of the hill, entering Castle park, we'll discuss Wine Street's history as an area of vice and prostitution before moving to corn street and discussing Bristol’s commercial history and those who’s resisted it. From here, we'll move to the graveyard of St Stephen's to visit notable graves from Bristol in the 16th Century. Continuing onto St Stephen's Avenue and down to Edmund Burke's statue, we'll discuss this memorial and the lack of female likenesses in the city, before in Bristol's oldest pub.

I am currently shielding due to the Covid19 outbreak and hope to be able to resume tours soon.

As a history graduate and lover of everything macabre who's been living in Bristol for five years, I'm really excited to share the gritty underbelly of this beautiful city. My route is planned to be just under three hours, showcasing local history of murder, despair and chocolate (in that order). Together we’ll discuss Bristol’s history of exploitation and greed whilst celebrating the city’s amazing ability to resist.

My partner and I booked this last minute and we're so glad we did! It was a great tour and we learnt so much about Bristol and it's unique history that we never would have found out on our own. Would highly recommend anyone visiting Bristol doing this tour, Alex is an awesome tour guide and great at presenting/explaining all the stories and history!

We had a 6 people stay away in Bristol and booked the tour for something different. Great communication with Alex before and during the tour. Fantastic few hours spent walking though the centre and we learned about some of the history of Bristol though the ages. Great interesting stops at strategic locations and timed stops in the local tap rooms for liquid refreshment. All said and done well with the money and Alex is a fantastic host and really knowledgable thanks Alex.
