BREXIT & BEYOND

St. James's Park tube station, London

Guided by Joanne or Kim

Short read: Britannia waives the rules

Long read: “A week is a long time in politics.” These days it changes hourly. Liberation or an epic act of self-harm? Is the Kingdom still United? As Britain starts the process of leaving the European Union we explore the current political landscape. Guided by Joanne, a lawyer, and Kim, and award-winning guide who’s worked in Parliament and the EU in Brussels, this is the consummate political London Walk. Our journey will follow the news headlines as we visit the places it’s happening as we speak. Ends inside the Supreme Court, where even the government can find itself in the dock.

Scene setter: Brexit is a world-historic turn. “The momentous events of 23 June 2016: changed all our lives; finished off another prime minister; split the country in two; left British politics in utter turmoil; The Dutch Prime Minister, not known for hyperbole, said ‘England has collapsed politically, monetarily, constitutionally and economically.’ Britain woke up on 24 June 2017 a divided nation. A country split between: young and old; rich and poor; north and south. The young, rich and parts of the south, particularly London, had voted ‘In’; the old, the angry and disadvantaged, and the north had voted ‘out’. Scotland and Northern Ireland voted to stay in the EU; England and Wales opted for out.” Anything else? Only this: London is by far Europe’s richest city. London is by far Europe’s most cosmopolitan city. A third of its population was born overseas. A quarter are not even British. The 999 exchange needs translators in 150 languagesImmigration is London’s lifeblood. It has been since the days of Good Queen Bess.”

BREXIT & BEYOND TOUR – THE PRACTICALS

LONDON WALKS PRIVATE WALKS

If you can’t make one of the regularly scheduled, just-turn-up, public Mountain Building & Meteorites in the City of London walks it can always be booked as a private tour. If you go private you can have the BREXIT & BEYOND walk – or any other London Walk – on a day and at a time that suits your convenience. We’ll tailor it to your requirements. Ring Fiona or Noel or Mary on 020 7624 3978 or email us at privatewalks@walks.com and we’ll set it up and make it happen for you. A private London Walk – they’re good value for an individual or couple and sensational value for a group – makes an ideal group or educational or birthday party or office (team-building) or club outing.

GIVE THE GIFT OF LONDON WALKS

A private London Walk makes a fab gift – be it a birthday or anniversary or Christmas present or whatever. Merchandise schmerchandise (gift wrapped or not) – but giving someone an experience, now that’s special. Memories make us rich.
