Walk of the Week: New Year's Day Poetry With London Walks

Every Sunday 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

But if you only take one walking tour this week, why not make it this one…

"This,” says London Walks King of Couplets Lance Pierson, “is just one of the many pieces of poetry inscribed along the banks of the Thames (see above). 

And they aren't all written about the Thames. Would it surprise you to learn that there are poetry landmarks dedicated to Wordsworth, Shakespeare, Donne, Burns and even Gilbert and Sullivan?”

To discover more and hear their poems read aloud come on Lance Pierson's Thameside Poetry-in-Performance London Walk between Waterloo and Westminster Bridges on New Years Day at 2.00p.m. 

Thursday 1st January 2015, 2.00pm meet at Embankment Tube Station.

A London Walk costs £9 – £7 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
