London is welcoming eager visitors, and I and my colleagues are busy busy busy.
I seem to have a lot of private groups over the next few weeks, but I do have some tours anyone can join.
Top of the list, 1st June. Meet at 10.30 by the Tower Hill Tram ready to take the boat to travel to Greenwich the royal way – by river.
Next, 6th June. Maybe you have read Sarah Waters The Paying Guests, shortlisted for this year’s Bailey Prize set in leafy Denmark Hill and Camberwell, just a step from central London, and a welcome breath of fresh air at any time of year, especially summer. We meet outside Denmark Hill overground station.
8th June I’m back in central London with two classic tours. For Westminster Abbey meet outside Exit 4 Westminster tube at 10.45, and for the British Museum I’ll be witing for you on Kingsway outside Holborn tube at 2.15.
