This is a lovely walk along the River Thames from Tower Bridge to Rotherhithe Tube Station. We walk in the City, Southwark, Bermondsey and Rotherhithe, through areas famous for Dickens. lived in by Gulliver, painted by Turner and Whistler, and we end where the Mayflower began its journey to the New World.
We will see great views of the River and its architecture and look at the history of the River Thames from the Roman period to the 21st Century. We will be exploring old warehouses, old palaces, former tea gardens, churches, council estate and infamous areas of slums which are now much-prized housing areas.
The Tower to Rotherhithe Riverside Walk takes place at 2.30 pm on Saturday, February 1. Meet Kevin – the distinguished former Museum of London archaeologist – just outside the exit of Tower Hill Tube (meet by the Tower Hill Tram coffee stand).
