I don’t know, you’ll think I’m spoiling you; three public walks in two days? Let’s hit the pavements. Bring the Ferrero Rocher if you like.
First up is the Walworth Walk on Saturday morning, exploring a part of Londfon that has remained remarkably undiscovered despite its central location. We meet outside Kennington tube for 10.45 and finish at some lovely artists studios which are open this weekend. There’s an attendant café, so you can lunch and mooch.
Or maybe you’ll want to leap on the number 40 bus to join me for The Old City walk at Tower Hill for 2pm.

It was Walworth Heritage Day today, organised by the Walworth Society. My Blue Badge colleague Kim and I led two walks in the morning. Shelagh, the guide who had worked with me to devise the walk, was unfortunately not able to be in London this weekend.
The weather was unpromising to begin with, clammy and humid. Then the heavens opened. Local MP Simon Hughes joined my group as I did an extended introduction from the shelter of the railway arch.
But rain did not stop play, and both Kim and I had the satisfaction of positive feedback and good post walk chat from our groups.
It’s always nice when you take people around their local area and they discover something new about where they live.
