Innovation Walking Tour FREE

The Lit & Phil has always appealed to inquiring minds and from the start its members included many innovators. Keen to share their knowledge, members would lecture on a variry of subjects, and demonstrate their own ideas and inventions. 

This tour looks at examples of these innovations, the people behind them and some of the places where they worked.

Tours start at the Lit & Phil and finish at the Guild Hall on the Quayside. Tours last approximately 1 hour 30 minutes.

FREE but booking essential.
