Event description

Description

This walk starts at Tower Hill where we discuss some very interesting and unexpected firsts that happened in both the Tower of London and around Tower Bridge - we then walk around St Katharines Dock and see the fleet of 70 foot clipper yachts as they prepare for the Round the World Clipper Race which starts on 1st September.

On this walk we discover the location of first zoo, where first mobile phone call happened, nautical firsts and stories of piracy and other crimes. Its associations with some quite iconic characters both past and present. We see evidence of days gone by and the re-gentrification of the area, pass the homes of celebrities past and present and the location of some well-known films. The worlds first police force and first tunnel under a river along with some other less well known firsts to name but a few, before ending the walk in a riverside tavern. This walk includes some stunning views of the Thames - so please don't forget your camera!
