A fascinating walk between two of London’s most famous landmarks through the Elizabethan playground of Bankside. Join us as we use images, Google Earth and true stories to bring it all alive.
In this tour:
The iconic St Paul’s Cathedral, the politics of its plans and how it survived World War 2. The sadness of Queen Anne and her legacy, the heads on the gate of Temple Bar, the College of Arms (and just how did Kate Middleton design hers?). Then there’s the ‘wobbly bridge’, the Chewing Gum man, the power station that became a famous gallery, the site of Shakespeare’s original Globe theatre, cruel bear baiting, tales of the foul-mouthed ferrymen, the iced up Thames, the Great Fire of London, and the naughty things that happened at Bankside.
