Will you uncover the secret door?
Lurking behind a secret door hides the enchanting world of Incognito. Under the watchul eye of unusual owner Chadwick Smithfield, enjoy an array of fascinating libations including ingredients like bubble bath, bacon and a side of gunpowder…
Walk the Water Meadows…
Just behind the Cathedral, you'll find signs directing you to the Water Meadows and Hospital of St Cross. This lovely, countryside walk will take you out of the city and in moments you are surrounded by nature - if you're feeling particularly brave you can challenge yourself to climb the steep St Catherine's Hill! If you continue on the path, you'll eventually reach the ‘hospital’ - which in the older sense of the word, is a charitable location to help the poor. The tradition of this building continues today, if you knock on the wooden door of the Porter's Lodge and ask for your ‘dole’ you'll recieve a small token of bread and beer.
