This excursion will be back soon. In the meantime we’d be happy to organise a private tour for you. Please contact us on 020 7624 3978 | [email protected] to make a booking.
Monument Underground station, London (Fish Street Hill exit)
Guided by Ruth S.
Introduction: Fossils, Volcanoes, seas, asteroids and time stretching back almost to the crack of Big Bang.
Body: Discover the history of the building of London from the Norman Conquest to the present day. The materials used to build the Tower of London, the Monument, local churches and many modern office blocks reveal a social history in stone.
Peroration: London will never look the same. Learning to read the stones – finding out about the fashions in building stone and the geological stories behind them – will change the way you see this great world city.
To go on the Eastcheap & the Tower – the History of London’s Building Stones walk meet professional Geologist Ruth Siddall at TBA on TBA. The meeting point is just outside the Fish Street Hill exit of Monument Tube. N.B. the walk takes about two hours and will end at Tower Hill Tube.
If you can’t make one of the regularly scheduled, just-turn-up, Eastcheap & the Tower – Reading the Stones (Urban Geology with UCL Geologist Dr Ruth Siddall) it can always be booked as a private tour. If you go private you can have the Eastcheap & the Tower – Reading the Stones (Urban Geology with UCL Geologist Dr Ruth Siddall) 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 [email protected] 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.
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.
