Greenwich Walking Tour

with Gavin

Monday, 9th May

11am - 1pm

With its magnificent buildings and fascinating maritime history, Greenwich is a unique place to visit!

The stunning Painted Hall and Chapel of the former Royal Naval Hospital, the exquisite Queen’s House and the Royal Observatory with the Greenwich Meridian where you can stand with one leg in the east and one in the west, makes for a great day out.

The Tale of Three Bridges 

Pub Tour with Vic

Friday, 13th May

7 pm - 10 pm

Drink in the history of London while you hear instrumental stories of Millennium, London and Tower Bridge and the lives of Londoners!

We walk around the outside of St. Paul's, a church fundamentally important to the lives of Londoners over the Centuries before crossing the first of our 3 Bridges, Millennium Bridge. The first pub, where Pepys watched the Great Fire grow (and the pub seen in Mission Impossible) is in the heart of mysterious Bankside.

Go back in time as we walk through to Borough on the Harry Potter trail, stopping at a working market Pub and then to the last surviving galleried Coaching Inn left in London.

London Bridge is by far the most important bridge in London's history. As we stop to admire the view, hear the story of London Bridge before stepping back to 2 September 1666 as you retrace the origins of the Great Fire.

Walking up to the Tower of London and Tower Bridge via haunting back alleys and Old Billingsgate Market, we close the Tour at a spectacular Tavern that appears to be in the center of an English Village tucked away where you least expect it.
