Unique chance to visit historic MV Havengore, recital and City's oldest church

11.00 Meet for coffee and social at The Kitchen coffee shop joining the All Hallows church.

11.30 Tour of All Hallows crypt and church

All Hallows by the Tower is the oldest church in the City of London and a living church serving today's City community.  It is one of the few London churches that escaped the Great Fire; but the cumulative effect of a series of drastic restorations has been very largely to obliterate the structural evidences of the development of the building. This Norman church was entirely rebuilt in the 13th century.

When the Great Fire of London raged in 1666, Pepys climbed the brick tower of All Hallows to watch the progress of the fire across London. Pepys lived in Seething Lane, across the road from All Hallows.

13.10  Free  Organ recital at St. Marys at Hill  (donations for recital and drinks)

Anete Graudina violin
Florian Mitrea piano
Works by Schumann, Strauss & Bach 

14.00 Stroll to St. Catherine's Dock for Lunch on the boat and social

The fabulous food market is on every Friday at St Kats - see link:'s-on/good-food-market

Food is around the £5.00-£7.00 mark, depending on what you choose - my favourite is the freshly cooked falafal served in pitta bread stuffed with salad and a delicious hot sauce - yum yum!

We can get our food and then go on board to eat it.

15.00 Visit and view  the historic boat MV HAVENGORE that 

on 30 January 1965 carried  Sir Winston Churchill

 on his last journey by water along the River Thames from 

Tower Pier to Festival Pier during his  State Funeral

. NO HEELS PLEASE - beautiful wooden floors

15.45 Stroll back to Tower of London

    Just to let you know that no high heel shoes will be allowed on the MV Havengore as the floors are all beautifully varnished wooden floors.
