So you’ve written your cards, wrapped the presents, decorated the tree and planned the menu for Christmas Day. What now? You don’t want to twiddle your thumbs until 25th December.
And you certainly don’t want to join the increasingly desperate shoppers in the big stores.
Well, London is your oyster. Tomorrow, Monday 14th I am again taking the boat to Greenwich with a self-selected group for a guided tour.
You can be one of their number simply by meeting me outside Tower Hill tube station by the Tramshed Coffee Stop for 10.30 and handing over £15.50. That’s £10 for the tour and £5.50 for the boat. If you are over 65, or a full-time card carrying student then you get a reduction of £2 on the tour.
If you are planning a later start to the day, I’ll be outside Russell Square tube station for 2.30 ready to lead a tour inside the British Museum.
Wednesday 16th I’ll be guiding at the Tower of London, meet me at Tower Hill tube by the Tramshed Coffee stop for 11.00.
On Friday I’m in the City of London, the Square Mile, for Hidden London, meeting at the Monument for 11.00.
If you always wanted a peek inside the Palace of Westminster, I’m your guide. I’ll be there on Saturday. I’m Guide 10 with three tours; at 10.20, 12.40 and 15.20. You can buy tickets in person at the ticket office by Portcullis House, or online
I’m back in Westminster on Sunday, but outside. Old Westminster starts outside exit 4, Westminster tube at 2.30.
You’ll get another chance to join me for a tour of the British Museum, your last chance on a public tour this year, Monday 21st. Meet outside Russell Square tube for 2.30.
Tuseday 22nd will be last public walk this side of the festivities. It’s Old Westminster, meeting at 2.00 outside Westminster tube, exit 4.
