In Focus – The Embankment

Blackfriars underground station, London

Guided by

Streets Ahead! More trailblazing by the best urban walking tour guides on the planet. In Focus walks are an extremely detailed look – “what I love about London Walks is the degree of granularity you get” (as that American visitor memorably put it) – at the most famous streets and squares of London. And their tributaries. This In Focus walk explores The Embankment, past and present. We are of course walking where the river once flowed. “The world affords no finer view, take land and sea together, than to come up the Thames from Gravesend, shoot the bridge at high tide and go along to Westminster surveying the palaces fringing the north bank of the Thames”. One of those palaces is still with us. The others are present as ghosts and in traces. There are bridges. There are wonderful gardens. Extraordinary architecture (that’s in addition to those palaces). There’s the behaviour of the river. And what’s on the other side of the river.  Let alone the most important civil engineering project to ever come London’s way. Changed everything. This is a great walk. The Embankment In Focus walk has been created and is curated (guided) by top flight Blue Badge guide Stephen

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 In Focus – The Embankment 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.

LONDON WALKS – STREETS AHEAD!

Don’t just take it from us.
