Hungerford

A varied history

Get to know the Hungerford story

Hungerford is one of those small middle English towns that one might just pass through.  But like all such towns, it has history, it has interest, it is worth visiting.

How about John of Gaunt, a key meeting of the Glorious Revolution, the Kennet and Avon Canal, Freemen and Tutti Men?

Is that whetting your appetite to find out more?

Immerse yourself in Hungerford's delights

On our 75 minute walking tour we will show you the main highlights, telling you about the Tutti Men, the John of Gaunt connection and that key meeting.

In two hours we can walk further, out along the canal past the church to Freeman’s Marsh.

If you wish to spend half a day in Hungerford, our 75 minute walk can tie in nicely with a boat trip along the canal.
