    Tourdescription About the audio tour

    Harfield Village is a quaint little quarter of the city with a vibrant history. It has a proudly preserved community feel. It's a village of daytime pram-pushers, rush-hour commuters, and evening craft beer connoisseurs.

    Take a walk through the narrow alleys, back streets and parks and experience the increasingly trendy Harfield Village through the eyes of a local.

    Very enjoyable. Voicemap is fantastic. Did it with my 6 year old son and he has asked to do it again soon.
