Highlights From The Summer Programme – The Return of Eccentric London!


 


ECCENTRIC LONDON
"London is stranger than fiction"

RETURNING TO THE SUMMER PROGRAMME at 11 am on Fridays (from May 3 onward) 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. Update: we're often asked, "what do we see on this or that walk?" Here's a partial answer.

The Eccentric London Walk takes place every* Friday morning at 11 am

*from May 3 onward

Meet Hilary or Kim just outside the exit of Embankment Tube.
