My Favourite London Walk No. 4 (Plus some FREE Dietary Advice!)
(Pictured: Mildred opened the fourth bottle of Elderflower & Nettle wine safe in the knowledge that she would be walking off its ill effects with Judy on Saturday.)
Eat. Drink. Be Merry. Then eat some more. Tuck in. It’s Christmas. And calorie-burning help is at hand. Forget the Atkins. Stuff the F-Plan. The Scarsdale? Too much like hard work, mate. G.I? My eye.
Simply WALK IT ALL OFF on the 27th with the svelte Judy. She’s hitting Shoreditch & Hoxton at 10.45a.m.
“An area today full of bars, loft apartments and modern art galleries was once the centre of the furniture trade and is described by English Heritage as one of best preserved Victorian manufacturing districts. The Shakespeare and his chums once dismantled a theatre here, on Boxing Day 1598 and moved it all the way across the River Thames! The walk covers stories of Victorian music hall, of pioneers in gardening and medicine and the site of the most terrible and notorious slum in 19th century London. We finish at the 18th century Geffrye Museum - where its period rooms are dressed for the Christmas season.”
Happy Walking and HAPPY CHRISTMAS from all at the LW Blog!
