A Tale of Two Bridges
With two river crossings on this walk there are many spectacular views of some of London’s most imposing buildings at the political heart of the nation. The aim of the tour is to reinterpret what the monuments and buildings around Westminster tell us about the attitudes and values of the past. You will hear about the great medical pioneers honoured at St Thomas’s Hospital and pass monuments to the brilliant women who campaigned tirelessly for political rights and many other champions of political progress. This walk takes in the quiet Georgian streets of old Westminster before ending at Parliament Square where we take a look at the outside of the Palace of Westminster and hear about some of the great political leaders and defenders of democracy and human rights who are honoured there.
