About Lead The Way Tour
Join me as I walk with you through Carrickfergus, and show you how this small town in Northern Ireland played a very significant role during the Second World War. This Tour tells the story of the people who lived, worked or were based here during the Second World War. Through visiting some key locations, you will find out how Matilda, Rupert and Franklin all made their mark on the outcome of WW2. The route is just over a mile long, starting and finishing right beside Carrickfergus Castle - you can't miss it! The Tour lasts for around an hour and a half. If you have any questions or comments, do get in touch. I will be as accommodating as possible. An extended Tour to include a visit to the US Rangers Centre in Boneybefore, Carrickfergus is available on request.

Thanks, Nicole. It was great to meet you. It was interesting to hear of your own family's history during the Second World War. Personal stories are so important. History is not confined to text books and documentaries. Good luck with the studies.

A brilliant tour - totally fascinating and very well presented. If you live in or near Carrick, or if you're a tourist looking to know the history of the town beyond the castle this is an absolute must. Hugely informative and entertaining- and great value too!

Thanks, Deborah. I really enjoyed meeting you and your party. As you realised, there was so much going on in Carrickfergus during the Second World War that is now largely overlooked.

Thanks, Noel. I enjoyed sharing some of your family experiences during the Second World War, which showed how everyone was affected during that period, not just those risking their lives on the front line. The Home Front was equally as important.

Great tour. Lived in Carrick all my life and didn’t know any of what I learnt on this tour. Adrian was a brilliant guide and his wealth of knowledge clearly articulated throughout! Really enjoyable and I would thoroughly recommend it!!

Cheers, Gary. Surprising how much went on in Carrickfergus during the Second World War, yet how few tangible remnants exist. I hope the individual stories I share, as well as some broader Home Front information, is helping to keep those significant events alive.
