Start your tour outside the Town Hall, facing the market place. Then skirt round to the left going to the back of the Town Hall.
At the end turn right into the High Street and walk up to the Market Place.
Cross over towards the top left-hand side where you will find Peniless Porch, a gateway on to the Cathedral Green.
Walk to a spot in front of the Cathedral and then walk round the left or north side of the building past the clock and turn left into the Vicars Close.
Retrace your footsteps back to the Market Place and this time take the other big gateway to see the Bishop's Palace and moat.
