Some of the walks will be co-hosted by external groups, which can be found in the Guided Art Tours collection. These may have specific focuses and alternative arrangements. Please note booking on Eventbrite is free or pay-what-you-can and is essential.

Accessibility

There are sections of this route that may not be accessible for a wheelchair user due to the gradient, surface or narrowness of the paths.

There will be opportunities to stop and rest along the way, however the tour is reasonably paced and covers changes in level. If you have access needs, please get in touch prior on info@the-line.org. We want our tours to be as inclusive as possible and will adapt where possible, but recognise we may fall short in meeting all accessibility requirements.
