Walk of the Week: Hidden #London


Every Sunday 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…







HIDDEN LONDON

11 am on Mondays from Monument Tube Meet just outside the Fish Street Hill exit (the main exit)

There's no need to book. A London Walk takes about two hours and costs £10 or £8 for concs. (kids under 15 accompanied by their parent[s] go free)

This walk is the distillation of a brilliant guide's many years' experience probing the hidden places and forgotten nooks of the world's most elusive city. Exploring parts of London that few people know exist – up creeping lanes, round out-of-the-way corners, past secret islands of green – Shaughan's at his inimitable best. As the New York Times put it, the walk is "a highly entertaining...blend of historical commentary and bizarre anecdote laced wild mildly scurrilous gossip about past and present celebrities and defunct royals." In such places and with such a guide, the past becomes our present.

The Hidden London Walk takes place every Monday morning at 11 am

Meet Shaughan just outside the main exit – the Fish Street Hill exit – of Monument Tube.




A London Walk costs £10 – £8 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.
