Relics of New Street
Old meets New, on this short but packed survey of the lesser-spotted survivors on the city’s most familiar street. Hidden along New Street are the architectural remnants and decorative clues that show how the city’s shops, roads and squares have moved with the times. The walk includes a selection of indoor locations… but with no pressure to buy! Expect to encounter lost and relocated fireplaces, fountains, wallpaper, railings, pubs and more.
Please dress for the weather and wear shoes suitable for urban walking.
