To celebrate English Tourism Week, award-winning guide Karen (pictured) is guiding the Old Palace Quarter tour on Wednesday 21st March 2018 for half price - that's £5 per person!
Here's David on The Old Palace Quarter tour…
1) It's olde, vintage London. There are secret passageways that take you into the 16th-century. And the 18th-century is par for the course. It's so well preserved it's a miracle the whole neighbourhood hasn't been sold off to a museum. 2) So, as you'd expect, visually it's very appealing. 3) It's storied. It's storied because it's full of character, full of characters, and marinated in history. 4) It's nooked and crannied. Why is that important? "Well, maybe it's just me, but I like to see things other people don't get to see" (again). 5) It's got a wonderful guide. Her name is Karen – winner of the big one –the Tourist Board's Guide of the Year Award
Meet on Wednesday at 2.30pm at Green Park Tube, Green Park exit (by the fountain)
