Booked the short tour in advance and went on Saturday 17th June. Nice and cool on a very hot day. Tour guide was friendly and knowledgable. Lovely old building. Well worth the £7 as you get a free gin and tonic in the bar afterwards....More

Visited recently whilst in the area, in advance booked the Gin Connoisseur's Tour, at £20 per person appears a bit expensive but is well worth it if you like gin and history. It is located in a touristy area of Plymouth with plenty of restaurants...More
