NEW: Every Monday we’ll pluck just one walk from the vast London Walks repertoire and put it centre stage.
You can check out the full schedule at www.walks.com.
But if you only take one walking tour this week, why not make it…
THE OLD HAMPSTEAD VILLAGE PUB WALK
7 pm on Saturdays from Hampstead Tube
Shhh! It's a secret. Hampstead is the best place to be in London on a Saturday night. It's the roof of London. We'll look down and see the lights of the greatest city on earth spread out before us. On a clear night we'll even nip into the Old Observatory for a look through the telescope at the starry heavens above. What else? Well, it's London at its most picturesque – a perfectly preserved Georgian village. There's a superb cast of characters – ranging from the highwayman Dick Turpin to the painter Constable to the poet Keats; from Freud and D.H. Lawrence to George Michael and Boy George; from Elizabeth Taylor and Rex Harrison to Peter O'Toole and Jeremy Irons. There's London's most villagey atmosphere, great restaurants, magnificent Hampstead Heath, and well-hidden, cozy old pubs you'll fall in love with. In short, this is a great walk... they just don't come any better.
The Old Hampstead Village Pub Walk takes place every Saturday night at 7 pm
Meet Richard or Peter G. just outside the exit of Hampstead Tube. Hampstead Tube is on the Northern Line, the Edgware branch
N.B., The Old Hampstead Village Walk – which is not a pub walk – takes place every Sunday morning at 10 am (guided by David) and every Wednesday afternoon at 2 pm (guided by Richard III or Peter). Same meeting point: just outside the exit of Hampstead Tube.
