About the Event

Half Moons, Dragons, Magpies and Eagles are in the mix for this colourful part of Harleston’s past. What is more, they were controlled by wheelwrights, harness makers and maltsters. Whatever else the people of Harleston may have lacked, it was not the opportunity to quench their thirst! Pubs, beer houses and breweries abounded. Most of the old buildings are still here – if you know where to look. This walk will give a fascinating insight into a small part of Harleston history.

This guided walk will coincide with the Harleston Beer Festival. Take a couple of hours away from the beer tent and learn about the history of the Harleston pubs.

Tickets £4.00 per adult, children under 15 accompanied by an adult go free. There are a series of guided walking tours around the town throughout the summer.  All walks last about two hours.
