“If this were a golf tournament every name on the Leader Board would be a London Walks guide.”
There’s something for everyone in London. Starting with its long, spellbinding history – its cavalcade of glorious and darkest and finest hours. Its nonpareil art, literature, music and theatre scenes. Its renowned architecture. Its financial might. Its royal fever. Its unequalled rock ‘n’ roll heritage and scene. Its vibrant street art. Its culinary wonders. Its heady cosmopolitan mix. Its museums and galleries. Its squares like hundreds of flung emeralds. Its vast green Never Never Lands of parks and gardens and heaths and urban countryside. Its world-beating sporting scene. Its villages and waterways. Its secret and mysterious places. Its low, dramatic skies. Its flat vowels and customs and civilised ways. And, yes, even its climate.
Yes, welcome to London. Welcome to a city made for pleasure, made for walking, made for exploring, made for wondering at, made for taking delight in.
How will you regard it? What memories will you take away? Depends on how you see it and who you see it with. Which is why – yes, here it is again – those who know see it with London Walks.
