Public Walks 1st to 6th December 2014

A new month and a new week of walks, culminating on Saturday morning with one on my home patch that finishes at some wonderful artists’ studios.

Monday 1st December:

In the morning I’ll be leading a tour of Greenwich. We’ll be travelling there by boat on the Thames, and finishing just in time for a lunch in one of Greenwich’s many eateries. Bring your camera and prepare to enjoy thsi splendid spot so near to central London, yet a world apart.
Meet at Tower Hill, by the Tramcar coffee stop for 10.30.

Meet me outside Holborn tube on Kingsway for 2.15.

Meet me at Westminster tube, exit 4 for 2pm. Continue reading

Walworth could win a forgotten London competition. It is so central, yet so unknown. For those of us lucky enough to live here, it’s a vibrant, friendly neighbourhood.
