I’m Marcus Newton and I offer interesting, fun and informative walking tours of Sheffield and its surrounding area. For Autumn 2019, I have improved my tour to include suggestions from customers. I have redesigned the tour to make it suitable for people of all ages and for wheel chair users. I have revised the route to ensure the tour does not overun past 90 minutes. I now include when available visits to Sheffield’s twin Cathedrals.

I offer a concise 90 minute guided walking tour of Sheffield City centre on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday mornings. My tour costs £5 per person (cash sales only) and departs at 10:30am from the Winter Garden, Surrey Street entrance, which is next to the Mercure St Pauls Hotel and Ego Restaurant, please see my contact and tour location page on this website.

On my tour I take you on a leisurely journey through the 900 years of the history of Sheffield, from the medieval to the twenty first century. You see top visitor attractions including the Town and City Halls, the hidden gems of Sheffield and when available you visit the twin Cathedrals. My tour is mostly on the level, taken at an easy going pace, is suitable for people of all ages and is wheel chair accessible.

To help you get the best from your visit, I offer advise on the best places to go after my tour finishes at around noon. I tell you about museums, theatres, music venues, cinemas, walking, parks and gardens, sports attractions, shopping and places to eat and drink,
