"I love a little bit of secret history", said Dr. Johnson. He would have been well served on this walk through his old neighbourhood. Its concealed courts and alleys are keyholes into London's past, harbouring everything from traces of Roman London to a forgotten Norman crypt; and from the musty cells of an ancient prison to a beautiful but virtually hidden 300-year-old courtyard and hall. Let alone some fine old churches and a venerable inn or two. And betwixt and between Hilary (or Kim) conjures up – out of the bend of a road, the shape of a doorway, an old badge on a wall, a place-name, a custom or ritual, even out of a turn of phrase – a millennium and more of London's history.
The Secret London Walk takes place every Tuesday morning at 10.45 am
A London Walk costs £9 – £7 concession. To join a London Walk, simply meet your guide at the designated tube station at the appointed time. Details of all London Walks can be found at www.walks.com.
