This week’s public walks, 4th-9th June inclusive

The sun is shining, the skies are blue, it’s not too hot – perfect for getting out and about and exploring.

These public walks are ones where you just turn up at the start point, pay £10 (cash only) and join the tour. There is no need to prebook. I’ll be wearing my Blue Badge, the badge only qualified, professional guides are awarded.

Monday 4th June:
Greenwich, meet 10.15 outside Tower Hill tube, opposite the tram coffee stop. The tour finishes in Greenwich at 1pm. We take the boat to Greenwich so there is an additional charge of £6.50 for this tour.
British Museum, meet 2.30 outside Russell Square tube opposite where Barry sells freshly squeezed orange juice and other refreshments.

Meet me at Tower Hill for 10.30 by the Tower Hill Tram Coffee Stop.

Wednesday I shall spend in the City. First of all guiding the Tower of London, so all you Wolf Hall fans – and let’s face it, who isn’t? – prepare to tread in the steps of Anne Boleyn and Cromwell.

The meeting point is again Tower Hill. Again we meet at Tower Hill Tram Coffee Stop, but this time at 11.
The Tower Continue reading “Public Walks Easter Monday to 9th April 2015”
