DISPATCH today launches our new series of audio guides to take our readers on special behind-the-scene tours of the area’s top tourist attractions.
To kick off the series, presenter Stephen Thirkill is given a special treat at the iconic Newstead Abbey - the former home of poet Lord Byron.
During his visit Stephen discovers about the ladies in Byron’s life, the subjects that inspired him to greatness as well as learning about the political causes that helped make Byron such a popular icon.
Stephen also visits the library where Byron penned some of his greatest works.
