In Focus: That Bloody Woman!

DC Editor Adam writes…

I'm leading the next instalment of the In Focus tours for London Walks this Sunday and we'll be taking a detailed look at Fleet Street.

Among many other things, Fleet Street is home to the only central London statue of Queen Elizabeth I. We'll visit her on Sunday. In the meantime, here she is…



Just along the road, we'll also pay a visit to a statue of Mary Queen of Scots…




Even as a Scot, I can't help but feel a little sorry (with a chuckle thrown in) for ol' Queen Bess. In life, in death at The Abbey, and here in Fleet Street, Elizabeth just can't seem to get rid of That Bloody Woman!


Join me on Sunday, meeting at Temple Station 10:15a.m for In Focus: Fleet Street



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.
