'Once again, a tour with John Bryden proved top class - his organ playing (and choice of music), his commentaries, his humour and easy handling of the group all helped make this another memorable ACE tour.'
FITNESS / PRACTICALITIES
Participants must be prepared for a moderate amount of walking on this tour, and for traversing narrow pavements, cobbles and uneven surfaces that may be slippery if wet. Please note that some of the chapel interiors are dimly lit.
