Family Tour

This year we are introducing tours aimed at families with children. The vocabulary used is easier for children to understand, and there are also coloured illustrations that show points of interest on the tour that are perhaps not so easily viewed from child height.
There is less emphasis on dates and more on visuals, in order to retain a child’s interest and help them remember what they’ve seen.
We hope that families will enjoy being able to take a tour with their children – and perhaps talk about the most memorable aspect on the way home.
