Virtual Walking Tour
In addition to face-to-face walking tours with a costumed guide, we also offer an app based, self-guided virtual walking tour of Lancaster, set during World War I.
Our virtual tour is designed to allow you the freedom to explore the city at your own pace. What makes our virtual tour different is the way the user is encouraged to look at the stops on the route in an immersive, caught-in-the-moment way.
