A Tale of Two Cities: from West Minster to East Minster

This walk starts with coffee at Westminster Abbey’s Cellarium café, housed in its 14th century undercroft and ends at an eaterie near St Paul’s Cathedral. En route, we take in sights e such as the magnificent South Bank Lion sculpture and Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre. We hear about a sugar mogul, a famous beef stock, gin swigging, pancake throwing…and herrings.  We encounter a range of very different people such as Benedictine monks, a fierce horsewoman, Mahatma Gandhi, drunken nurses, angry ferrymen and a Victorian heavyweight boxer. We also discover some Secret London locations you probably never knew existed. So even if you are a Londoner born and bred, there will be much on this walk to surprise, delight and entertain you.


The walk is on the flat and we will go at a fairly leisurely pace, with brief stops to look at some of the fascinating sights on either side of the river. Loos at start and end and if needed, en route.
