On the last Sunday of every month the Magazine Gateway, Leicester Castle and Wygston’s House are open to the public, with visitors invited to explore the buildings on their own or book onto a guided tour with one of the Blue Badge guides.
Heritage Sundays provide a wonderful opportunity to discover some of Leicester’s historical treasures right in the heart of the city, including two buildings that are normally closed to the public.
Tours are not suitable for small children and suitable footwear must be worn. General admission to the sites is free. Pre-booking of tours is essential, contact the Visit Leicester centre, Gallowtree Gate on 0116 299 4444 or online via www.goleicestershire.com
Each Tour lasts one hour at a cost of £2.50 per tour or you can book for all three buildings on the same day for the discounted price of £6.
