The Best of 2015 On The Daily Constitutional June: The Flying Tour Guide #London2015

Our 2015 review…

Back in JUNE, David posted this pic of Mary…

We get the occasional comment from our London Walkers regarding the details in the London Walks guide biogs.

Surely, they seem to say, you add some of the details just to make them SOUND exotic.

Here, for example, is Mary's biog – pay attention to the bit in bold…


Mary ("Poppins") is "practically perfect." A classically trained dancer and an actress (West End credits include Gone With the Wind, a long stint at the Royal National Theatre and Noises Off), she's also a trapeze artiste, a professionally qualified, award-winning Blue Badge and City of London Guide and the boss. She is one of those English roses upon whom it is unsafe to try any oompus-boompus.

And here's the evidence…

What you don't get from the picture is that she's actually GUIDING the view from up there while swinging.

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 www.walks.com.
