Bermondsey (was Tower Hill) to Aldgate East via Wapping and Shadwell

IMPORTANT CHANGE TO STARTING POINT

There is no service on the District and Circle lines on Sunday, which makes Tower Hill an awkward starting point for many people (including me!).  I am therefore moving the start to Bermondsey Underground Station as this is on the Jubilee Line, which is working fine.  It will make the walk a little bit longer, but with the bonus of some extra time walking along the river before crossing Tower Bridge.  We will still be stopping in in Wapping at the Prospect of Whitby as a part way stop. Hopefully the rain will stop or at least not be too bad for our walk.

The start time of the walk is now 1.20 pm rather than 1.30 (I'll still be there from 1 or just before) - just bringing it forward by 10 minutes to account in part for the slightly longer walk. We will leave promptly at that time and I will not be able to take calls/texts after that time.  If you need to call or text before then my number is 07794 017227.

If you are a little bit late you may still be able to catch us up.  Come out of Bermondsey Underground station, cross the road, turn left, turn right up Bevington Street, left up Chambers Street, right up George Row, left up Bermonsey Wall W.

I will expect us to finish up on Whitechapel High Street around[masked]pm, and those that want to can come for a drink afterwards.  Although there is no service from Aldgate East westwards, Liverpool Street is not far away or there are plenty of buses into the City, Old Street, or West End from the finish point.  

===========================

A shortish wander, repeating a walk we did a couple of years ago,  past the Tower of London, Tower Bridge, St Katherine Docks, Wapping High Street (some of this along the Thames Path), and then back via Shadwell Basin, the ornamental canal behind Wapping and Wapping Woods, and finishing at Aldgate East via Cable Street.  The walk is around 4 miles.  We will have a half way stop in Wapping and a pub stop at the end as well.

Note this is meeting from 1.00 for a 1.20 pm start promptly. There is a £1 per person organizer fee - payable to me on the day to help cover my meetup organizer fees.

    A complete contrast from Trent Park recently, and variety is the spice of life.... Some other parts of London I wouldn't have got to on my own, thank you Alison for organising and leading.

      Dear members. This is a query rather than a grumble. How do I stop receiving comments? I'm getting comments even though I'm not attending the meeting up. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Alison

      May 11, 2014

    • Alison

      You are still on the attendee list so you will receive related emails as you neglected to change your RSVP.

  • Alison

    Don't forget we are starting from Bermondsey Underground Station today - sorry about the last minute change, but in return we get some good views over the Thames and crossing the bridge. Please note that on past experience there are no loos at Bermondsey or nearby (if you know better please inform the group!).

    It appears fifty percent of the people who say they are attending don't, so I hope Sally you would be allowed to join.

    Is it possible anyone coming on this Walk can leave their number here as it would be very handy for this Event. Cheers.

    April 26, 2014

    • Alison

      I will make my number available nearer the time Nigel.

    I've updated the address slightly so the map is more accurate, but ignore the 38 Trinity Square address - this is not where we are meeting, it's just the official postal address of the station. You'll need to find your way towards the remains of the London Wall and the Emperor Trajan statue.

    • Nigel N.

      Why can we not meet outside a Tube Station ? So much easier to find everyone.

      1 · March 31, 2014

    • Alison

      It can get busy just outside the Tube and we'd be in the way. This meeting point is about a minute's walk away down some steps.

      March 31, 2014

  • Sufia

    Alison, your walks sounds so interesting and enjoyable. I look after my nephew alter weekend and sadly your walks are most of the time the weekend I look after my nephew, he has autism and I am expected. I am hoping some of these walks will be repeated and will have the chance to join you someday.
