Every Monday we’ll pluck just one walk from the vast London Walks repertoire and put it centre stage.
You can check out the full schedule at www.walks.com.
But if you only take one walking tour this week, why not make it this one, a walk that is leaving the London Walks programme for the Winter 2012/13 season – so this is LAST CHANCE TO SEE!…
"London is stranger than fiction"
11 am on Fridays from Embankment Tube
This is a collector's piece of a walk...one that'll change the way you see central London. It teems with unexpected delights, odd places and passing strange things and people. You'll crack the mystery of the Trafalgar Square lions (and a royal statue), learn how an acrobat risked everything at St. Martin's in the Fields, and whether the spinning dome at the top of the Coliseum actually spins. Orson Welles and Sir John Betjeman put in an appearance...as does the most eccentric bookshop in the world. Enjoy! And afterwards you can spoil yourself with cream cakes and tea.
The Eccentric London Walk takes place every Friday morning at 11 am – UNTIL THE END OF OCTOBER – LAST CHANCE TO SEE! Meet Hilary or Kim just outside the exit of Embankment Tube.
