In and Around London... The Big Football Kick-Off Part Two

Monday is mute on the London Walks Blog (well, almost mute) – because Monday is the day when we post five images captured in and around London by London Walks Guides and London Walkers. Collated on a theme or an area, if you've got some great shots of our capital and want to join in send your pictures to the usual address.

On Saturday, the Premiership season began. London’s big clubs – Chelsea, Tottenham Hotspur, Arsenal, Crystal Palace, West Ham and Fulham – started the quest to depose champions Manchester United and bring the crown back to London.

On the same day the Extra Preliminary Round of the world’s greatest knock-out club competition also began: the F.A Cup.

While the millionaires of the Premier League strutted their expensive stuff, the smallest teams in the country began a journey that will end at Wembley on Saturday 17th May 2014 in the F.A Cup Final.

Nine steps down the pyramid system from Arsenal and Chelsea, the welcome is warm and cheery, admission is £4 and a lovely cuppa tea is about a third of the cost of a cup of brown milk at Starbucks

Inside the ground… 

The home dugout

(Part Three to follow…)

A London Walk costs £10 – £8 concession. To join a London Walk, simply meet your guide at the designated tube station at the appointed time. Details of all London Walks can be found at
