Comic genius.' ***** (Everything-Theatre.co.uk). 'Dry, droll and genuinely funny.' **** (FringeReview.co.uk). 'Enviable rapport with her audience.' **** (FringeGuru.com).

So I must say this show has inspired me to visit the historical sites but I did feel that there was some cheating going on.
With out wanting to spoil the show for you I daren’t write about it!

Helen Wood makes for a genial host, and hearing about her adventures made me want to run out and buy a lifetime NT membership! And to find a friendly labrador to take along with me. I was lucky enough to be awarded the cream tea, which was a lovely addition to this wonderful experience.
