Blog Extra (or… Hitchcock: The Sequel)
A dialogue breaks out on the London Walks Blog. (Should that, therefore, be a diablog? No, perhaps not. Ed.)
King of the Canal Roger caught wind of our earlier post for Richard IV’s Alfred Hitchcock extravaganza earlier today, noticed a crossover with his next outing, and fired us this missive:
“Richard IV’s excellent Hitchcock Walk says almost all, and should not be missed,” says Roger. A good point to start with. (If you did, however, contrive to miss it, Richard offers it once a season so keep an eye out here at LW Blog, at www.walks.com and the Facebook Group for details of the next outing.)
“But, like all the best thrillers,” Roger continues, “just when you think you’ve seen it all… there’s more!”
(Cue thriller soundtrack: Dun-dun-da-a-a-a-a-ah!)
“A famous Hitchcock film location is just the start of the next Regent’s Canal London Walk (this Sunday 16th August). And further on, there’s another well-known spy film location.
And if that isn’t enough, visit with us the legend of Boudicca, and you’ll see why we’re so enthusiastic about this new Walk Route !
Then for something completely different, after seeing places where Thames Sailing barges used to glide past, how about a starting place for balloon flights? It’s all here.”
The Regent’s Canal – King’s Cross to Hitchcock’s Hackney London Walk meets at King’s Cross station taxi rank on Sunday (16th August) at 2.30 p.m.
