Scientists and Monsters Private Tour Reviews:

Louisa   4-Dec-2021

“What a great tour. Not a run of the mill subject for a walk but it was very interesting and lots of places identified connected to the writers and their books as well as many scientists and their ‘discoveries’. Steve was friendly, full of knowledge and happy to answer any questions. Very much recommended!”
