I am taking some time off at the end of this month, so I shall be pounding the streets less than usual. Summer has reached into every crack and corner of London. It’s a time to watch the world go by from one of our many parks, eat ice cream, explore the city and reward yourself with a beer outside a sunny pub.
My diary changes, but at the moment I shall be leading tours around Greenwich Mondays 6th, 13th and 20th. The meet point is Tower Hill by the Tramshed coffee stop for 10.30. The cost of the tour is £10, or £8 for over 65s and full time students, plus the cost of the boat; £5.50, £3 children under 15.
I am back in the British Museum on two Mondays – 6th and 13th. For this tour meet me outside Holborn tube station for 2.15. Tour costs as above. Entrance to the museum is free.
I have three repertory other walks this month. Continue reading
These women and more feature in my walk this Saturday. Can you name them? All had or have a connection with this little corner of Southwark that stretches between Southwark tube station and Borough High Street. Continue reading
After a damp and cool few days, the weather is set fair for the weekend, just in time for Fair Maids, Feminists and Philanthropists, a walk in north Southwark featuring women. Some of the names will be familiar, others have somehow dropped from sight, although their work and influence lives on. Some were infamous, others famous.
Even if you think you know this patch of London between Southwark tube and Borough High Street, I’m willing to bet you’ll learn something new.
Join me this Saturday, 1st June at 10.45 outside Southwark station for a two hour guided walk.
The cost is just £9, or £7 for over 65s and full-time students.
You’ll be able to recognise me as I shall be wearing my Blue Badge
, and holding some London Walks leaflets.
