Expect a trail of the unexpected on this walking tour with headphones, where you can tune in to some of the secrets of Spon End, one of Coventry’s oldest neighbourhoods, in the company of your guide, inventor Herbert Cleaver.

“A fascinating adventure” “Absolutely amazing! Informative, immersive and really moving… learnt so much… bringing history to life.” (Audience Comments)

The tours last approximately an hour, are FREE and suitable for all ages 8+, but pre-booking essential by e-mailing (please state how many places you would like to reserve, your preferred time, and any access requirements you’d like to let us know about).
