What you'll do

We will walk around quiet backstreets from Westminster to Vauxhall. Over two hours we will visit a Georgian cathedral town and pleasure garden, a Victorian penal port and graveyard, a Bronze Age port and religious site, and a 21st-century city that is still under construction. You will be immersed in different historical periods and will hear lots of gossip and scandal. This walk actively encourages your participation. You will be able to share your perceptions of London at different historical periods, looking especially at how similar or different London residents were then compared to now. This walk can best be regarded as an open-air seminar where I facilitate a greater understanding of English culture.
