free richmond walking tour

Are you interested in learning more about the history of Richmond? Matthew contacted me with details about a free walking tour of RVA that he’ll be leading each week:

Richmond Tour Guys: Free walking tours of Richmond VA meet every Saturday and Sunday at 10:30 AM

      (Starting on May 31st, 2014) in front of Brown’s Island right next to Tredegar Iron Works. It lasts 2.5 -3 hours depending on what questions you have (with a short break half way through).

The tour is free. No strings attached. Why free? Because our guides love history and sharing it via guided tours and hope that you enjoy the tour so much that you will tip them.

The tour includes stops at:
Tredegar Iron Works
A stroll across Brown’s Island
The former slave markets of Shockoe Bottom
Shockoe Hill which includes White House of the Confederacy, the Capital Building, and St. Paul’s Episcopal Church
and several other stops in between.

The guide will provide insights to the buildings and to the city that will bring all of these sights to life! All you need to bring the sightseeing tour is curiosity, but you may find some water and sunscreen useful!
