Meet for a circular walk on the history of Southwark

Today I am taking you on a tour of Southwark & Bankside where I will show you some hidden treasures including a prison wall, a graveyard for the 'outcast' and the site of the original Globe Theatre. Have you heard of the saying 'doing clink' and where it originates from when we see one of the first prisons in London that was part of a palace and I will tell the reason just why Guys Hospital was opened.

For those interested we could finish in a local old pub for a drink and to continue any discussion you wish on the local history or any other part of London.

Looking forward to meeting you and if you wish to contact me on the day my mobile number is:-[masked] or at any other time post a comment on this site.

Members coming to this event are welcome to bring up to 2 guests.

    Sorry but as there are now only 3 people coming on this walk and the weather forecast is a high chance of rain for Saturday I am postponing this walk for a few weeks. I am going to try a Sunday for the walks and hope that there is better response. Also something important has come up that I need to do on Saturday.
    Again, sorry, but hope this notice gives you a chance to re-organise your Saturday afternoon.
