Það sem verður gert

This is a history walk with a twist. Based on my debut historical fiction novel, City of Secrets, this walk will give you a tour of the city and an insight into its historical secrets and gems. We meet at Blackfriars Priory on the corner of Blackfriars and Ladybellegate Street where Guido the monk resides. The year is 1497. The dead body of a young girl lies in the scriptorium. From Blackfriars we will visit the home of my main character Emmelina, a 15th-century timber-framed merchant's house. Then we will visit other significant sites in the book. They include the 13th century East Gate and the historical site near the Cathedral where the burning takes place and the New Inn. At the end of the walk, you will have learned a lot of interesting things about Gloucester's interesting history. Reading my book is not a pre-requisite of the walk.
Please note I am Covid aware. The walk takes place in the open air.

Hi, my name is Christine and I am the author of the historical fiction novel, City of Secrets, set in medieval Gloucester. I have written several local history books about Gloucester and have a wealth of knowledge about the city's history. Books to date: Secret Gloucester, Gloucester in 50 Buildings, Gloucester's Military Legacy and Gloucester at Work. Learn about the city's fascinating history in a fun and novel way (excuse the pun!)

Staðsetning

The tour covers the city centre and takes an hour. There will be lots of opportunities to ask questions. If you have not read the book I won't be giving away spoilers as most of my guests find they want to read the book at the end of the walk.

We learned a lot about how Gloucester’s medieval history was reflected in Christine’s book. It was a light intro to Gloucester and oriented us to the city. Christine braved the elements and met us very inclement weather, and was very friendly and helpful.

We explored parts of Gloucester that probably local people don't know. Christine was very knowledgeable and had a great insight into the local history. One of the best tours we have ever been on. Would totally recommend it

A compelling afternoon exploring corners of Gloucester which we had walked passed earlier not seeing the stunning history which was surrounding us. A really enjoyable experience, thanks Christine.

Excellent tour of some of the hidden gems of Gloucester, made special by reference to real and fictional characters from Christine’s book. Christine is a friendly and knowledgable host. Highly recommended.

This tour was full of surprises and very informative. Christine went into great detail and answered many questions. A very inexpensive, interesting and imaginative tour and with a friendly enthusiastic host would definitely recommend this experience.

Had a wonderful tour with Christine. Christine showed areas of Gloucester that I wouldn’t have been able to find on my own. Visiting the locations and hearing about the different characters really brought the tour to life (I can’t wait to read the book).
