London Walk of the Week: Eccentric #London - Guided by Kim

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…

Eccentric London

Sunday 15th October 2016 Meet at Embankment tube river exit at 10.45a.m – guided by Kim

London is stranger than fiction. 

A little something for the connossieur. A collector's piece of a walk. A walk that'll change the way you see central London. A walk that 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.

Eccentric London meets at Embankment Tube 10.45a.m on Sunday 15th October 2016
