Our tour with Mark was so interesting and he was so great at storytelling. At the end of the tour some of the group dropped into a pub that he recommended and he even surprised us with extra tour of the pubs dark history that only he and the bartenders would have known of (not saying anything more of this secret space). Moral of the story is “Always take your last pint”- a story you will hear on this tour!
