Talking about what to expect on the tour, Natalie says,

“Join me to hear the story of the Seven Towers, tales of feudal lordships, of deals with the devil, the headless horseman, of ancient monastic settlements and the rebels of 1798. The tour will also cover the more recent history of this busy market town and popular shopping destination.”

She went on to say,

“The first planned tour will be on 20th April from 11am to 1pm. It will begin at The Braid Arts Centre, Bridge Street, Ballymena.”

If that date doesn’t suit, Natalie has also tours planned for 27th May, 29th June, 13th July, 24th August and 28th September 2019. Booking is essential for any of these and you can book online here. Private tours are also available – just get in touch with Roots Revealed to discuss your needs.
