About the Event
On Saturday, 24th September, Louise, our London Blue Badge Guide for the duration of our tour, will meet us at Tower Bridge (10.30 am), and we will commence our 2-hour to 2.5-hour walking tour to the London Eye.
Louise will bring the tour to life with her knowledge, expertise and humour whilst we take in;
This walking tour will start at the iconic Tower Bridge, where our guide will outline its fascinating history and allow time for photos.
The Cathedral and Collegiate Church of St Saviour and St Mary Overie stands at the oldest crossing-point at the River Thames at what was for many centuries the only entrance to the City of London situated across the river.
The Golden Hinde - replica
The Golden Hinde was a galleon captained by Francis Drake in his circumnavigation of the world between 1577 and 1580.
The ruins of the palace of the Bishop of Winchester
Winchester Palace was once one of the largest and most important buildings in all of medieval London. Built-in the early 13th Century as a home to the powerful Bishops of Winchester, the palace was mostly destroyed by fire in 1814.
Today visitors can see the impressive architecture of the remaining walls of the Great Hall, including a magnificent rose window that adorns the west gable.
The reconstructed Globe Theatre on Bankside
The original Globe Theatre was built in 1599; William Shakespeare was both one of its founders and acted within its walls as part of the Lord Chamberlain's Men during the reign of Elizabeth I. The latter became known as the King's Men during the reign of James I. You will learn more about the development of theatre in Elizabethan times and how the reconstructed Globe came into existence.
The Millenium Bridge
With a modern design giving a unique tubular effect, London's Millennium Bridge is a 330-metre pedestrian bridge linking the City of London at St Paul's Cathedral with the new Tate Gallery at Bankside.
The view is fantastic from this bridge (great selfie location)
The London Eye, or the Millennium Wheel, is a cantilevered observation wheel on the South Bank of the River Thames in London. We will have excellent views of City Hall, Westminster Bridge, and Big Ben here.
This is where we finish our walking tour (approx 1 pm)
