#London Walk of the Week: Doctor Who Tardis On Thames #HalfTerm #historyforkids #DoctorWho


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…






TARDIS ON THAMES – Doctor Who by the River

2:30p.m Westminster tube (exit 4) Sunday 14th February 2016




Join us on an intergalactic journey without leaving the banks of the Thames never mind the planet! “Tardis on Thames – Doctor Who by The River” allows you to walk in the footsteps of various Doctors, Assistants and even Cybermen! See where the Daleks attempted to take over the earth in 1964, stand at the very spot where the Doctor and Rose sealed their friendship in 2005. Help to crack the code troubling one William Shakespeare at the historic Globe Theatre. This fun, family-focussed walk takes us through some of the iconic moments in Doctor Who history whilst at the same time taking in some of the most iconic landmarks in the capital. Just how did The London Eye help save the world? How did the Ogrons walk the Southbank without being noticed? We even come to face to face with the Doctor's greatest enemy of all – ITV! Join actor, writer and Doctor Who aficionado Jolyon as he guides you through the thrills and spills of the cosmos wearing a long scarf and packing at least two packets of jelly babies – would you like one?

To go on the Tardis on Thames – Doctor Who by the River walk meet Jolyon* – he of the long scarf – just outside exit 4 of Westminster Tube on Sunday 14th February 2016.

The walk takes about two hours and ends at the Tooley Street entrance of London Bridge Tube.

*Comes the walk, comes the guide. Jolyon's a National Theatre and West End actor (let alone a plunged-into-the-hilt Doctor Who aficionado – he's the author, for heaven's sakes, of Was Conceived in a Dalek)



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.
