Paul Dickson - Shardlake's Norwich. Don't say 'Yes' unless you have a ticket.

The group limit for the tour is 12. You need to book a £10 ticket at


In case other people book tickets I have limited the numbers attending to 1 (me). If you are able to book a ticket add yourself to the wait list and let me know you have one, then I will transfer you to 'attending'. I hope that is clear. I have no control on the number of tickets available.

These are the website details:
