Criminal negligence. That’s what not going on this walk amounts to. Heading in here, it’s like finding a secret compartment in a wall, opening it and “OMG, look what’s back here.” Secret passageways. Hidden vault where Henry VIII and Catherine of Aragon feasted. Little Italy. Bleeding Heart Yard. Medieval ceiling masterpiece. Windows ablaze with diamonds (“there comes a day in every woman’s life when she wakes up wanting diamonds”). Ragged schools. Oliver Twist. The heist. That cherry tree. London’s most hidden pub. Rare breed. Honey Dew. Fab street-food market. Ancient sacred place the visiting of which is “like a screeching handbrake turn in your day.” Bizarro, a bit of Cambridgeshire (gated of course but we get in). Superstar Guides Kim, Rex and Hilary, OBE.
