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.
My next public walk will be Saturday 17th. Slavery and the City starts outside Monument tube station at 10.45 am and finishes near St Paul’s. Be prepared to be both shocked and inspired. Out of one of the most shameful periods of our history there is a story of hope and optimism.
In the afternoon of 17th I shall be staying in the City to lead The Old City from Tower Hill at 2pm exploring the City’s relationship with God and Mammon, and pointing out a series of spectacular weather vanes.
Walks last around two hours and cost £9, £7 concs plus travel and entry fees where applicable.
