First up, I’m back in Greenwich Monday morning, and hoping to be able to loiter for a while at the end of my tour to take some photographs and enjoy the ambience. Although well connected to central London, Greenwich has a different pace. It’s a splendid spot to spend time no matter what season.

We meet at Tower Hill tube by the Tram Car coffee stop for 10.30. It’s a boat ride to Greenwich, and a great opportunity for to photograph London from the river.

Truly, Madly, Southern

Just one public walk this week at the moment, and that is one of my South London specials: Princes and Paupers.

It’s a guided walk around the neighbourhood of Kennington, an area best known for cricket, MPs and Charlie Chaplin.

Naturally I’m going to show you there is far more more to Kennington than that. I mean, how many art galleries do you know that are housed in ex public lavatories?

This walk starts outside Kennington tube at 10.45 on Saturday 24th January and lasts around two hours, finishing within a few minutes walk of the tube station, and even closer to a very nice pub which serves food. Your choice. The walk costs £9, or £7 for full time students and ver 65s. Continue reading

Public Walks 12th-17th January

A very Happy New Year to everyone.

One of this year’s resolution’s should be to keep up to date with this blog, I am sure there will be gaps; moments when days stream by without me putting up a fresh post.

But not this week.

So tomorrow kicks off with a Greenwich tour. We meet at 10.30 at Tower Hill tube tram coffee shed, and then travel the Royal way – by river – to Greenwich pier. Wrap up warmly as it is colder on the river than you might expect, though hot chocolate is available on the boat.

Tomorrow afternoon I am guiding the British Museum. Meet me outside Holborn tube for 2.15. We’ll be seeing some of the highlights of the museum’s collection, including the Rosetta Stone and the Sutton Hoo ship burial.
