Wednesday Walks

​Wednesday Walks - November and December, 2017

Our aim is to inform and entertain - join us on the first Wednesday of each month and we'll introduce you to places off the beaten track. All walks start at 11.00 am, finish by 1 pm and cost £10 per person.

From May to September, when the evenings are lighter, we plan to try evening walks and each walk will start at 6:00 PM.

You will be welcome to just turn up at the meeting point and pay on the day – if you would like details of the first couple of stops in case you might be running late, then please email the guide for that walk to let her know that you are intending to come and she will send you further information. elainewein@btinternet.com; jenni@bowley.net; jenny.rossiter@gmail.com; annetickell@btinternet.com




Wednesday 1st November at 11:00 am - Heart of the City - with Elaine Wein

This walk takes us where 2000 years of history mingles with 21st century architecture. We pass some wonderful Wren churches and see some of the City’s beautiful gardens. At the Old Bailey, you can find out why the judges wore nosegays and how a Victorian artist honoured our unsung heroes. We will see the historic Guildhall, and learn about the history of the Bow Bells. Our walk ends at the Bank Junction where we see Mansion House, the home of the Lord Mayor of London, the Bank of England and Royal Exchange.

Starting Point: St Pauls tube, exit 2 by Caffe Nero
Finishing Point: Bank
Guide: Elaine Wein

Jenni Bowley, Anne Tickell, Jenny Rossiter and Elaine Wein
