Newport's British Occupation Walking Tour
Add to my Calendar Get DirectionsPrint This Event
In 1777 as the Revolutionary War officially began, 7,000 British and Hessian soldiers invaded Newport creating an occupation that lasted for nearly 3 years. Join an expert tour guide wearing an authentic 18th century British military uniform and explore the sites and stories of the soldiers and citizens affected during this time. Tickets should be purchased online in advance of the tour to guarantee availability. Walking tours depart outside of the Museum of Newport History at the Brick Market, located at the foot of Washington Square, 127 Thames Street, Newport RI. Attendees should look for a sandwich board sign indicating where to check in with the guide and depart for the tour to the north of the building near the flagpole. Tours cost $15-$20 per person, $10-$15 for Newport Historical Society members, active duty and retired military with ID; $5-$8 for children ages 5-12.
