Walking tour

A discerning amble through London

On Sunday 27 January 2019 a group of Young Landmarkers gathered for a discerning amble through the streets of London. Despite the freezing temperatures, we enjoyed a walking tour designed exclusive for us and led by an expert blue badge guide.

 

The bespoke tour was expertly led by blue badge guide Katie Wignall from Look up London tours. It celebrated and illuminated some of London’s hidden history, plus passed by one of our smallest Landmarks, 43 Cloth Fair - the former home of John Betjeman and next door to the only remaining house in the City to survive of the Great Fire of London. 

Katie ably led us around Smithfield and Clerkenwell, revealing long forgotten pieces of history, guiding us around the majestic St Bartholomew the Great Church and even pointing out filming locations for Agatha Christie's PoirotWe ended at the Crown Tavern in Clerkenwell for a warming drink or two.

We are planning another tour with Katie later in spring 2019, so keep an eye on your Young Landmarkers emails for more information.
