Free London Walks

It's back again!  Local London Guided Day

I am proud to be involved with this years Local London Guided Day on Saturday 11 October. This year's theme is the Georgians, a particular favourite of mine. Four guiding associations are working together to deliver free guided walks in their specialist areas: Clerkenwell & Islington, City of London, Westminster and Greenwich.

Walks start at 10am and repeat on the hour with the last one at 4pm. Each walk will last no longer than an hour which means you could realistically do all four free walks! There will be a voluntary collection for the Royal British Legion at the end of each walk. No need to book, just turn up!
