"H" Is For 'Arry The 'At

DC Editor Adam writes…

In December 2016 I posted the The Daily Constitutional's blog post number 5,000.

To mark the occasion I've been digging in the archive and over February 2017 I'll be reblogging The DC's "Greatest Hits" – my 50 favourite posts. 

In addition I'll be sharing my 50 favourite London photos to have appeared here since October 2008. 

I hope you enjoy them

With winter on the way, the thoughts of London Walks guides and London Walkers inevitably turn to… warm clothes!

A while ago we blogged about our favourite walking shoes – you can catch up with our recommendations HERE.

This month, we're at the other end of the spectrum: hats.

Harry Jackson is first up, reminding us of the old maxim, "If you want to get ahead… get FIFTEEN hats."

(It is the mark of a London Walks guide that he or she will ALWAYS go the extra mile.)

We're particularly fond of these pics. They look like the gallery section in the biography of some illustrious spy where we get to see the master of disguise in full spate.

For preference? We think the beret is tops. Although, paradoxically, the top hat is also "the berries".

Harry adds, enigmatically… "There are some of us who just suit a hat. Sadly, there are some who don’t."

Harry, there's only one possible response to this: we take off our hat to you… 15 times.

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
