Ever wanted to learn more about geology but don’t know where to start? Join me, Ruth, for this walk to find out more about geological materials through building stones – urban geology.

This walk will look at igneous, sedimentary and metamorphic rocks in the area around London’s Guildhall. We will also find a variety of fossils and learn about the geological environment and timescales in which the rocks now used to build the city of London formed.


Ruth Siddall is the real deal – she’s a top-flight, award-winning, professional geologist.

  1. Sue

    It takes a special person to encourage 16 adults on a cold Saturday afternoon in February, to get down on their haunches to observe a London paving slab, or to walk along imposing city buildings, caressing and observing the stone work. Ruth did just that! Her passion is infectious. Brilliant walk.

  2. Joseph Cowan

    A wonderful, entertaining, fascinating walk. Ruth was marvellous.
