Cakes and Ale!

Walk: Sun 11 Sep 2016 2:00pm - 4:30pm
Venue: Start: Swan Inn Admission: FREE

Come with us on a walk around the town centre and discover where many of Thornbury’s ancient pubs and beer houses used to be. You can learn about the history of the ones that are still here today – and hear stories about the town’s drinking past!

We start from outside The Swan in the High Street and finish at the same place around 4.30pm for complimentary cake and tea/coffee in the function room upstairs, where there will also be a rolling slideshow illustrating some of the vanished buildings described on the walk. (Ale can be bought at the bar if you prefer something stronger!)

Free car-parking is available in the Castle Court or Rock St. car parks.  We suggest you use the Long-Stay sections.

This walk is FREE and is being offered by the museum as a contribution to the national Heritage Weekend and as part of South Gloucestershire Council’s Discover Festival.  As places are limited, please see below for how to book your free place.


Tickets are FREE but places are limited and should be booked in advance by visiting, phoning or emailing the museum
