Harleston Walks

Harleston Walks

The programme of Harleston Walks for 2018 came to a close with the Food and Drink Walks on 6 October designed to coincide with the annual Food and Drink Festival.

The walks lasted about two hours and consisted of a presentation and tasting in The Swan, followed by a guided walk to shops providing samples throughout the town. Some of the shops even offered generous discounts on the day.

We would like to make a special thank you to the shops and outlets which kindly and generously supported the walks. Click here for details of the participating shops.

We asked those attending the walks to provide feedback on their experience and recommendations. There was an overwhelmingly positive and supportive response from people from as far away as Kent.

Harleston Walks are a programme of guided walks around the town throughout the summer months. The walks are researched and presented by volunteers from within the local community.  They bring a rich knowledge of the town, the buildings, and its history.  The mix of knowledge and enthusiasm of our guides offer an unrivalled way to experience the town.

We are now looking to the 2019 programme, please check back for details.

Harleston History

In many old guide books Harleston is described as being a town of Georgian and Victorian houses. Whilst the centre of the town looks like this is the case, in reality the buildings are far older - but hidden!  What we see here is just a facade, beneath which the Harleston of the 1300s to 1600s remains!  It just has to be discovered.  There are over 160 very old buildings in the town, many with some of the original features still visible.  We will be publishing regular articles about individual buildings to create a list of some of the architectural masterpeices inside Harleston.  Keep a look out for new entries, then come to Harleston and see for youselves.
