Well, I’m in fine spirits due to a combination of experiencing a glorious drop of weather today, coupled with a new found pastime of photocopying pictures of buildings I talk about on the tours, but which no longer exist! These I will be able to share with people on my tours, thus providing the imagery that was previously lacking!
As you can see this Friday is a long overdue return to the Smithfield area & the “Monuments to Murder” tour. I’m looking forward to this as it’s probably my favourite tour due to various factors, including visiting areas of quietitude (a rarity in the City!!)
So, if you can make it it’ll be lovely to see you. We meet outside the City Information Centre at 2 pm.
Why not get up & out early on Sunday & go to watch the London Marathon & then come on my tour at 11am? Meet at the City Information Centre by St. Paul’s Cathedral.
The tour will look at two devastating fires that changed London irrevocably – The Great Fire of London 1666 & The Blitz 1940-41.
The tour lasts two hours & ends at The Monument, which was built to commemorate the re-building of the City of London after The Great Fire in 1666.
We will visit little known remnants of both these cataclysmic events & discover why & where the fires raged & how people of the time dealt with the disasters.
Adults – £7/ concs. – £6 /children under 14 years – Free
I have to laugh – lately the weather reports say “possibility of snow” each time I have a tour lined-up! Only time will prove whether it will snow!
Several pairs of socks called for!
Meet at the City Information Centre by St. Paul’s Cathedral.
