Fleet Street Pub Tour 18th May

Sat 18th May 2019
7.15pm Blackfriars Tube

This is a London Walk’s walk.

We take a slice of London’s history as we follow the course of the River Fleet North from the River Thames into Darkest Victorian London. Enroute we discover the traces of history, left not only in the Buildings and the historical stories but also in the very lie of the land. To reflect on our discoveries we stop in a pub or two on the way. Our timespan will stretch from the Romans to the Present day, and we will discover Palaces, Monasteries, Roman Temples, Zeppelin Raids, cow crossings and coal landing places as well as visiting the homes of Katherine of Aragon, the Rookeries of Fagin and Friends, the Street of Shame, the best modernist buildings in City, and Wren’s best Spire. A feast of topography, history, literature and aerial warfare; not to mention a couple of great pubs!

Please leave me a comment - its great to hear what you think.
