The walk will be through a busy pedestrianised area with mixed cobbled and sometimes uneven surfaces. All venues will be on ground level. One venue will have four internal steps. The introductions will be standing but with seating available. The venues are varied according to each exhibition and may include sound, moving images, artificial or dimmed lighting.
