Many thanks for taking me back to the 19th century on yesterday’s fascinating tour. I really caught the atmosphere of the Victorian scene from your descriptions and from visiting the many sites.

I just wanted to pass on our thanks for the lovely tour of Worcester last night. Though we have all lived here for many years, it amazed us how much has been hiding from our view all this time.

Please pass on our thanks to Paul for bringing the tour to life for us.
