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 access@talkingbirds.co.uk (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). The route is ramp accessible. Captions (subtitles) can be provided via your mobile device via The Difference Engine.

Tours start from from Langar Aid House CV1 3AR, accessible from Upper Spon Street just by historic Spon Bridge. Refreshments will be served after the tour (donations welcome). Please wear comfortable shoes and come dressed for the weather!
