Heritage Open Days - Guided Walk - Summerhill Special

About

Join the City Guides in a guided walk through the delightful but little explored Summerhill area. Discover this leafy 19th Century suburb which was home to some prominent Quaker families and other influential individuals over the decades.

A circular walk through the historic suburb of Newcastle which was the home to a number of individuals who have helped shape Newcastle. The walking tour led by trained City Guides will explore this little known suburb and the prominent individuals who have lived her. A particular property in the Summerhill area was recently the focus of a BBC series A House Through Time which is on the route of this fascinating walk.
