Once, the Port of London was the world's largest port, with the River Thames as its highway. Though patterns of trade have changed over the last few decades, London's river is still alive, and it bears many reminders of its rich trading heritage.
From developments within the medieval City to the creation of the Port of London Authority, this tour takes you downriver to tune in to the echoes of trade which reverberate through today's London.
Meet at street level at the Garlick Hill exit of Mansion House Underground Station.
Guides number 07982 132231.
This event is part of Totally Thames which runs from 1 to 30 September: www.totallythames.org/
The walk will take approximately 2 hours. For information on travel, please use Transport for London's Journey Planner.

When & Where
David Charnick, Footprints of London
A native Londoner, I am also a qualified City of London guide. I tour principally in the City and the East End, and teach an adult education course giving an introduction to guiding in the London Borough of Tower Hamlets. From this has grown a workshop group, the Tower Hamlets Walkshop, which is developing a structured guiding culture in the borough. Please do see my website for further information.
IMPORTANT: Attendance on any walk can only be guaranteed through pre-booking. If you cannot pre-book here but wish to attend, you are welcome to do so, but you MUST please give me prior notice using the “contact the organiser” facility below (please remember to provide a phone number) and I will confirm arrangements by return.
Please only make the journey to a meeting point if you have received a confirmation from me.
Many thanks, and I look forward to seeing you on one of my walks!
