Join Madame Parboiled on a Sunday for a tour through some of Nottingham City's Famous pubs. Learn about the history of these fascinating buildings and some of the guests who have died and just won't leave. Treat yourself to some of the local ales while you are entertained with stories by Madame Parboiled the dungeoneer's wife and take advantage of the special offers with tour tickets.

A great way for visitors and residents of our ancient city to explore its history and be entertained in some of the most historical buildings in Nottingham. The tour not only covers some of the local stories but some of the stories behind the naming of the pubs.

This tour gives a good laugh as well as picking up facts you never knew about. Being in the evening makes it a memorable unconventional birthday, stag party or hen do, as well as corporate or social club events. You can even book your own night or afternoon (except Friday or Saturday night).

Check for special offers when booking and pay the Support Guide when you join the tour, or use the on-line payment form.

Please make yourself known at the bar so you don't miss the tour.
