A new month and a new week of walks, culminating on Saturday morning with one on my home patch that finishes at some wonderful artists’ studios.
Monday 1st December:
In the morning I’ll be leading a tour of Greenwich. We’ll be travelling there by boat on the Thames, and finishing just in time for a lunch in one of Greenwich’s many eateries. Bring your camera and prepare to enjoy thsi splendid spot so near to central London, yet a world apart.
Meet at Tower Hill, by the Tramcar coffee stop for 10.30.
In the afternoon I shall be guiding the highlights of one of the most celebrated museums in the world – the British Museum*, or BM, as it is familiarly known.
Meet me outside Holborn tube on Kingsway for 2.15.
Tuesday 2nd December:
Away from the Christmas shoppers, we’ll be exploring Old Westminster. We’ll see the private and public faces of Westminster: the famous and familiar – Westminster Abbey and the Palace of Westminster – and the quiet streets just a stone’s throw away.
Meet me at Westminster tube, exit 4 for 2pm. Continue reading
Autumn; what a splendidly spiffing time to go on a guided walk.
Tonight I can offer you a chilly evening enlivened by Along the Thames an entertaining pub walk with fabulous views of the City, and the prospect of mulled wine.
Meet outside Blackfriars tube station for 7pm.
Monday 24th November, two walks of must visit places for anyone coming to London.
In the morning it’s Greenwich, travelling there by boat on the Thames, and finishing just in time for a lunch in one of Greenwich’s many eateries. Meeting at Tower Hill, by the Tramcar coffee stop for 10.30. Continue reading
I’ll ‘fess up; I forgot to say that I was doing the Greenwich walk yesterday. However, I shall be leading it prett often over the next few months, as well as the Bermondsey walk, so I shall add those into Dates for Your Diary.
This Saturday 15th November it’s your once in six month chance to join me on the public Vauxhall tour, Viva Vauxhall!
Vauxhall is so much more than a transport hub and multi-lane pedestrian nightmare. Think Lily Savage, pleasure gardens, James Bond, community spirit, hymns ancient and modern. Throw in a garden designed with the help of Dan Pearson, mosaics hidden in railway arches, alpacas, and cake, yes lots of cake. Or Welsh rarebit and real tea served in cosy-covered teapots. Yum!
We meet at 10.45 outside Vauxhall tube, exit 2.
