Event description

Description

Victorian London was a startling mix of contrasts: affluent new suburbs and overcrowded slums, new cathedrals to finance and trade built next to decaying city churches. We'll be exploring the nineteenth-century City just as Dickens himself did, on foot in the ancient streets and alleyways.

The walk will last about 2.5hours, with a comfort break in an historic pub or an aesthetically pleasing café along the way. The pace is gentle; we cover more history than geography!

Karen Chester is a fully trained and registered City of London Guide Lecturer, accredited by City University and the Institute of Tourist Guiding.

Please meet at the Fish Street Hill exit from Monument Station, for a prompt 1.30pm start.
