Walk & Talk The Docklands, East London !

Come join us for a packed conducted walk around the London Docklands; a fascinating area, off the usual tourist tracts. We hug the river Thames - source of London and the Empire’s wealth in the 18/19th century. An often torrid, often violent history that shaped London today. However, we start at the dazzling luxury yachts and classy flats of St Katherine’s Quay and boutique shops of Marble Quay which belie a industrious but desperate past. Then to Wapping’s gritty streets and ancient pubs with a cut throat past, tobacco dock, News International, ‘Fortress Wapping’ where journalism was revolutionised in a vicious battle, St Patricks 17th century church, Turks Head café, Raines charity school and lots more…
(This is part 1 of 2 dockland walks, the 2nd will be in a around a month).

Meet: 2pm just outside Tower Hill Tube Station Exit - by a small Cafe Kiosk called 'Tower Hill Tram' (note; don't confuse with the tube entrance bit nearby).
End: Wapping tube station at about 4pm
If delayed call Simon[masked] or Michael[masked] (or if we've already left try to catch us at the first stop, St Katherine's dock area).

    Great walk, commentary could have been a bit louder at time but great to get to know a few places. Would have been good to stop at one of the lovely pubs half way, factoring it into the time available.

    How nice -- not an area i know enough about . i am assuming this walk is rain and/or shine, and that it is dog friendly. please tell me if I am wrong.
