HIDDEN LONDON & THE REGENT'S CANAL
24 Sep 2013 : - :
Tuesday 24th September £46
After being such a popular tour last year, we have decided to include this trip again.
In 1666 the Great Fire swept away much of the London of our ancestors but the flames died to ashes to leave one corner untouched. With a walk, a coach tour that takes you from one side of
London to the other and a relaxing canal cruise through Regents Park, this is a day of great contrasts and interest.
We meet the guide at London Wall for coffee. From the Aldersgate to the Newgate via a maze of narrow streets and bygone alleyways you’ll walk beneath a Tudor gatehouse, visit a plague pit and see the stately Charterhouse and the homes of Hercule Poirot and Sir John Betjeman. We pass St. Bartholomew the Great, which is London’s oldest Parish church. We stop for lunch at St. Paul’s Cathedral. The narrow boat cruise is an exploration of London’s Regents Canal, which takes us from Camden Lock through leafy Regent’s Park and the terraces of London Zoo to Little Venice.
Price includes: travel by coach, driver’s gratuity, tour and boat cruise.
The coach leaves Virgin Active at 8.30am and departs London at 4.45pm.
