Event description

Description

Discover water gates and river frontages that have been left high and dry; walk through a possibly haunted underground street; hear how an ancient obelisk was transported from Egypt to the bank of the Thames. Dickens, Bazelgette and Brunel all feature in this walk which explores how the Victoria Embankment transformed London’s riverside and uncovers evidence of what was there before it was built.

The walk will last about 2 hours and starts outside Westminster Pier exit from Westminster Tube station (Exit 1) - and finishes close to Temple tube station.

Please check travel arrangements on the day at Transport for London's Journey Planner site.
