The city also has over 400 years of American connections and the tour will include some locations such as the beautiful Elm Hill, from where early settlers to Virginia originated.

The tour starts at The Forum and finishes at the Maids Head Hotel, with an opportunity to visit the Eighth in the East exhibition, which is at the hotel from 23 September to 6 October.
