Gloucester City Council, working in partnership with the King's Walk Shopping Centre and the Civic Trust, is re-opening the King's Walk Bastion for public tours again this summer. The chamber contains the remains of part of the Roman city wall and a medieval defensive tower, probably constructed during the reign of Henry III.
Venue: The King’s Bastion, King’s Walk (outside Primark)
Start Times: 11.00, 11.45, 12.30
Duration: Approx. 30 Minutes
Accessibility: The Bastion Chamber is only accessible via a staircase leading underground and it’s subterranean location makes it very humid.
Ever looked down through the glass chamber outside Boots and wondered what else is down there? Well why not go down and take a look! Join our very own Lucius Sita – (a real Roman Solider in full uniform!) for special tours throughout the summer break. A fascinating trip for all ages!
Venue: The Eastgate Chamber (Meet at the Museum of Gloucester)
Start Time: 14.00 & 15.00
Duration: 30 minutes
Access: These tours are not wheelchair accessible and people with other accessibility requirements may have difficulty entering the chamber as it is underground and accessed by stairs only.
Further Info: Under 18’s must be accompanied by an adult
