This walk doesn’t have a theme per se, but it’s crammed with London’s history. You’ll see hidden gems no other walks show their clients. Things hidden away in little nooks and crannies, or that are right out on display but which people walk past every day without realising what treasure they are missing. We see two of London’s least known yet most touching and important memorials, one of the great medieval halls, London’s most striking guild hall and its old city wall, oldest churches and oldest hospital. We also see areas infamous for their public executions, things relating to the Great Fire, body-snatching and the Tudors. And we never stick to a road when an interesting old alley, lane or square beckons.
