Walk London’s rich history with Richard Cohen

Two fantastic opportunities to support the work of Amnesty International.

River Walk from Blackfriars to Westminster Sunday 29 September     2:00 pm.   


We begin our exploration of London’s magnificent riverbanks by taking a walk along the north bank of the Thames.  This affords views of some of the most magnificent architecture in London including the Houses of Parliament, the National Theatre, Somerset House and Middle and Inner Temple.  We will have the chance to enjoy the cool and shady delights of the different Embankment Gardens.  We will hear the stories of the many great men and women who are honoured with memorials along the way.  This is a truly monumental walk in which we follow a route linking the great centre of business in the City of London to the centre of political power in Westminster.  It should be lovely in the rusty colours of late September.

The takings from this walk will be go to Amnesty International.  To join this walk click here

City of London River WalkTower Hill to Blackfriars  Sunday 27 October   2:00 pm


This walk will take you to the scene of some of the bloodiest executions in English history on Tower Hill.  We will touch on London’s great maritime heritage as we pass Customs House, Billingsgate and Queenhithe, London’s first harbour.  Our walk along the Thames as it flows past the City of London affords views of some of the greatest buildings in our city.  We hear the story of the great bridges that span the river and we end our walk for refreshments at one of London’s most extraordinary pubs dedicated to the Blackfriars or Dominican brothers who gave their name to a whole area of the City.

This is a fundraiser for Amnesty International.  To join this walk click here
