Just four public walks in the diary for the coming week.
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.
On Thursday I’m staying south, with a tour of Bermondsey. Again we meet at Tower Hill tube for 10.30 before crossing Tower Bridge to an area where I used to work many many moons ago when I first came to London. It has changed almost out of recognition since then and was described by one of the City Cruises watermen as la-di-da the other week. I almost spilled my hot chocolate.
It’s February before my third and fourth public walks. Sunday 1st February I shall guiding The Famous Old Square Mile at 10.30 from Monument station, and in the afternoon I’ll be in Westminster for Old Westminster, starting outside Westminster tube, exit 4 at 2.30.
All walks cost 39, £7 for over 65s and full-time students, plus any entry charges and travel fares.
