Nearly half way through the year already. Where does it go?
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.
9th June, we can head out of town for an Explorer Day to Salisbury and Stonehenge. We’ll be away all day. Obviously this costs a bit more, but a very reasonable £77 which covers travel, entrance fees and tours. There is an excellent new exhibition about Magna carta at Salisbury cathedral.Meet at Waterloo Railway Station opposite platform 16 outside the main ticket office at 8.45.
13th June is Sunny Walworth with the additional lure of Open Squares and Open Studios at the end of the walk. The rest of the world is just waking up to the joys of SE17. Come and see them for yourself.
15th June at 10.45 I’ll be guiding Greenwich again, then racing back to Tower Hill for Bloody Flaming Poxy London. Forgive me if I am the last to arrive!
18th June B is Bermondsey, or as it’s called in the London Walks programme Hidden Village.
22nd June is Greenwich again.
And at the moment that’s all my public walks for June.
But watch this space, for there may be more.
Walks cost £10, £8 for over 65s and full-time students, plus travel and entrance fees where applicable.
