Went on the best tour ever! I love the movie Hot Fuzz, and have seen it many times with my family. I had always wondered where the adorable little city that was Sanford was actually located. Wells is such a beautiful little city, and truly made the perfect backdrop for the film, with its small town feel. Our guide Siobhan... More

Siobhan gives a very informative but not over-academic walk round the city that adds a great context to what you see. We were with her for one and a half hours. During which we saw all the significant sights, not including indoor the cathedral or the bishop's palace. Wells is a wonderful place for a short break and this tour... More

Whilst staying in Wells, my wife, our 12 yr old son and I went on the "Hot Fuzz" tour with Siobhan. Starting out from the Crown Hotel in the square, where the 1st main scene in "Sandford" is set (hoodies around the fountain), Siobhan took us around the various locations of the film (she provided us each with her unique...

I generally don't do walking tours as I can never hear the spill and they can get a bit boring, however, be prepared as a local I was in stitches, Siobhan is really funny, sometimes naughty and incredibly well informed, it's only a couple of pounds so go for it if you come to wells.

We did three walks with Siobhan over a weekend that was organised by the Swan Hotel. Siobhan was excellent. She knew her stuff and kept up an interesting and informative commentary. The walks were interesting, not too challenging and followed good routes. Highly recommended.

My wife, daughter and I joined Siobhan for the tour after phoning her at short notice as we had squeezed the trip in between driving from Aberdeenshire en route to Butlin's Minehead. We were met by the very nice guide, along with another couple and were told an extensive history of various places in and around Wells, that if you've... More

We joined this 'Food' walking tour with the guidance of Siobhan. A small group of us on a windy cool evening in May were kept moving and entertained with local stories from past and present. It was a comfortable One and a half hour walk on reasonable surface. The guide even brought along a few local samples for us to... More

Pleased as punch to see this advertised on a board outside the Crown only a few minutes before the start. Siobhan gave us a great tour and added some inside info on the filming, the crew and some funny stories about the background research for the film. Siobhan is such a charming, cheerful and enthusiastic person and had everyone joining... More

Siobhan gave a group of friends a wonderful walking tour of Wells. She made the stories and history of the glorious city come alive with anecdotes and details that could so easily be overlooked. Several of us will now be looking at plaques and details with new eyes. Thank you so much for a wonderful afternoon tour Siobhan, which I... More
