Bedminster’s older than Bristol and this 5-star tour takes you to extraordinary places where amazing things happened.

We’ll introduce you to grave robbers and body snatchers; concrete coffins and hanging judges; a man-eating lion; an exotic princess who was one of the world’s great impostors; and a forgotten Victorian murder – or was it?

And running through it all, like hot liquid gold, the still missing millions laundered in Bedminster from the Brink’s-Mat robbery, Britain’s biggest ever.

BBC Sounds podcast GANGSTER: The Story of John Palmer features our tour – and Bedminster will never seem the same again.

“Fantastic! So much fun and some really gruesome stories!” – Livvy Haydock, BBC GANGSTER podcast
