24 January 13 words: Jared Wilson

A nose around the former home of Lord Byron, a poet who was "Mad, bad and dangerous to know"

If he was still alive today then Lord Byron, one of the greatest British poets, would have turned 225 this month. To celebrate his birthday (22 January), we went on a tour of his old stomping ground and took our camera with us.

The Abbey is open to the public on Sundays and they offer house tours at 12pm, 1pm and 2pm. The tours last approximately 45 minutes.
