Tours of the Historic Churches
If you would like a tour of the Historic Churches on Romney Marsh, there are three organisations that provide such tours. All the tours are conducted by tour guides with a wealth of knowledge about the churches you visit.
Fact or Fiction Tours
Fact or Fiction Tours offers half-day or full-day tours of the mediaeval churches with Blue Badge Guide Sue Duckworth. All tours are individually planned to suit you and your group. Travel is usually on a luxury coach or minibus fitted with a microphone though other transport is available. Meals and accommodation can all be recommended, though you may have specific places where you would like to eat or stay the night.
Fact or Fiction Tours also offer illustrated lectures on the churches, which are well researched, entertaining and informative talks suitable for any club, association or corporate gathering. Each lecture lasts about 45 minutes which allows time for a discussion or questions afterwards.
