During this enjoyable tour we walk, eat and craft! We start off by finding out how Marlow developed into the vibrant town it is today and enjoy the sights of All Saints parish church, Marlow Bridge and the riverside.

We admire the park and the statue of Sir Steve Redgrave then off we go to the other end of town to learn about “Remnants” and its links with military history and see a house linked with the story of Frankenstein! We go at your pace and there is plenty of time for questions and photography. At one time Marlow was famous for its bobbin lace-making and at the end of the tour, we go to an unusual cafe where you can learn how to make lace and if you want, you can buy your own lace pillow and bobbins afterwards!

Additional information

A cream tea is included in the price of the walk. Toilets are provided at the end of the walk. Please contact Bobbie if you are bringing a dog.
