Wallingford History Walks

Wallingford history walks and Museum tours in 2016 


During 2016 there will be opportunities to join one of the popular history walks led by Judy Dewey and Wallingford Museum volunteers. 


On Sat 2nd April there will be a walk around the Castle earthworks in the morning, followed by a Town history walk in the afternoon. So a full day to absorb Wallingford's history, and a super opportunity to visit the Museum's latest exhibitions between your exercise! Put the date in your diary now! 


Separately arranged group visits to the Museum or history walks are proving increasingly popular. They can be specially tailored to your group's requirements. If your group / society/ school would like to book for 2016 then please phone Judy Dewey as soon as possible, tel: 01491- 651127. 


There are two new special exhibitions at the Museum this year ........ '1066: William Comes to Wallingford' describing that William the Conqueror came to Wallingford after the Battle of Hastings to cross the River Thames with his army!  But why did he choose Wallingford? ...... and '300 Years of Cartoons!'  a spectacular private collection , featuring about a hundred cartoons of all kinds. 


And if you come early in the season, your £5 entry ticket will give you terrific value, as you’ll be able to return as many times as you like for no extra cost. The Museum is open from 1st March. Children under 16 are free, when accompanied by an adult.  More details at www.wallingfordmuseum.org.uk
