AT LAST: SOME STREET WALKING !!
After six months ‘off the road’ I am pleased to say that September and October will see me back taking small tour groups around London. Because of restrictions, numbers are limited to just 10 people and everyone has to go on line to book a place.
The Project has been launched by the City of London and aims to encourage Londoners – and others – to get out and learn something more about the capital. They are called CULTURE CORRIDOR WALKS and a number of colleagues who are also City Guides have signed up to lead these free walks. I will be taking people from Shoreditch to the Royal Exchange in the City. Details of the other walks, meeting places and times can be found on-line.
Believe me, this walk, which includes Spitalfields, is rich in social history and covers the changing landscape of an area that has absorbed the cultures, language and traditions of the Bangladeshis, the Huguenots, the Jews, the Irish, the Scandinavians and several other immigrant groups over many centuries.
Social distancing will be observed on all the walks and we shall avoid the crowds by taking detours if necessary. If you are interested then search for CULTURE CORRIDOR WALKS around London on the Eventbrite web site to get more details. And remember the walks are FREE!
