Hidden London and the Regents Canal
A City & Village Tour.
Wednesday 19th May 2010
Leave from William Street Car Park at 8.30 a.m.
After meeting our guide for morning coffee at 10.30 a.m. at St. Pauls Cathedral, we walk through a maze of narrow streets and alleyways seeing stately Charterhouse and the homes of Hercule Poirot and Sir John Betjeman. We also visit Smithfield Victorian Meat Market – now skilfully restored and still working.
For lunch we transfer by coach to the Barbican Arts Centre where hot or cold lunches are available. Or you can take your own packed lunch.
The afternoon is spent on a narrow boat cruise of approx. 50 minutes exploration of London’s Regent Canal. We see elegant London town houses on this hidden waterway going through the cobbled and flagged courtyard of Camden Lock, through leafy Regents Park, terraces of London Zoo to Little Venice. Stop for tea at the Royal Festival Hall.
