CHANGES

In the Winter 2019-2020 London Walks programme – which kicks in on November 1st and runs through April 30th – the Tuesday night London Horror Story walk hibernates. it will not run on Tuesday nights in our Winter programme. Nor will it be back in next Summer’s programme. It will be replaced by a new walk Adam’s creating called River of Blood.

In the Winter 2019-2020 London Walks programme – which kicks in on November 1st and runs through April 30th – the Wednesday night Rock ‘n’ Roll London Pub walk hibernates. it will NOT run on Wednesday nights in our Winter programme. It will take place on Wednesday evenings in the Summer 2020 London Walks programme. So, yes, we’ll be rocking and walking and pubbing every Wednesday night from May 1st onward.
