Get a taste for the history of Norwich pubs on this guided walking tour with Norwich tour guide, Paul Dickson. The tour starts from the 16th century Maids Head Hotel Bar on Wensum Street and lasts for 1½ hours.


See where Ralph McTell had his first professional gig and Paul Simon sang solo; explore where Monsieur du Pain entertained drinkers by dipping his feet in boiling lead; visit Alan Partridge's favourite Norfolk bar and discover where 18th century diarist Parson Woodforde used to drink. Hear stories of gruesome murders, Sixties music heroes, student sit ins and much more.


The tour ends back at the Maids Head where you sample a half pint of the hotel's Maids Head Ale, brewed by Woodfordes, or a soft drink.


Meet at the Maids Head Hotel bar, Wensum Street NR3 1LB. Ticket £7.50, booking essential via Eventbrite or t. 01603 666011.www.pauldicksontours.co.uk
