A lunchtime virtual tour for the Animal Rescue Centre
Join us on a Zoom virtual tour for charity on 21st July 2021, 1.00 pm to 2.30 pm UK time.
The Isle of Dogs and Canary Wharf in London’s East End is such a fascinating place. It’s where Henry VIII kept his hunting dogs, a place of pirates, executions and rum imports, the world’s first under-river tunnel, great docks and a proud local community that once declared their own independent country, ‘The Isle of Dogs’. Most of all it is a story of the resilience of the human spirit, to not accept failure.
I’ll use Google Earth images, photos and lots of true stories told by a former official British Museum tour guide (me!) to really bring this story alive about remarkable rise, decline and rise once more of the area known as the Isle of Dogs.
When is the Isle of Dogs virtual tour
- 21st July 2021 at 1:00 pm to 2:30 pm UK time

How does your donation help dogs (and cats!)
The Animal Rescue Centre (ARC) is a charity in South Goa, India, doing incredibly important work, relying on volunteers and donations and gets no government funding. To find out more about their work please visit their website. They currently need funds to help pay for wheelchairs for many disabled dogs that they are taking care of.
They urgently need a full time dedicated vet to be able to remain on the front-line, providing life-saving care. As someone who sponsors a dog there, I know at first hand about the critical work they are doing.
Google reviews of my tours
“A rivetting tour guide … literally transports us in to the pages of history”
I had the privilege of going on the British Museum Highlights Tour and it was like going into a timemachine! Loona is a riveting tour guide and literally transports us into the pages of history with anecdotes, extra information and humour thrown in for good measure! His knowledge is phenomenal and so well researched that the hour and fifteen minutes fly by. He made me feel like I was actually in the museum looking at the exhibits I never thought it would be so much fun! This is a highly recommended virtual tour, complete with your own tour guide!
“Head and shoulders above other tours”
From my experience Loona’s tours are head and shoulders above other tours. I will definitely be going on more tours with him and am going to enquire about a tailor made tour with him too.
