Event Details

£35

The summer – with some sunshine – will have arrived by June, so come and spend a sunny morning along the banks of the Thames discovering this beautiful stretch of the River, with plenty of historical and contemporary themes.

We will discover a mortuary known as Dead Man’s Hole, English Delftware pottery and the Hanseatic League’s presence in the Steelyard.  We will then move upstream to hear about Customs Houses alongside Geoffrey Chaucer, Roman docks alongside an operating freight wharf, while walking via stories of Baynard Castle and the pulpits of Blackfriars Bridge.  We will also touch upon 1920s tiles, and twenty first century mosaics, before  completing our summer saunter with seabird motifs and mudlarking tales.  We will also discuss “shooting the rapids” at London Bridge, and the changing views of the London skyline.

The Walk will be led by Meg Ryder, a Londoner who hails from Pimlico and now lives in Camberwell.  Meg is a qualified solicitor who left the law to establish bespoke walking tours in London to follow her passion for all things historical, artistic and architectural. Meg has a Masters in History from Edinburgh University, and studied History of Art and Architectural History in Rome.

The walk will begin at 10.30am. This event is for members only.
