City Walks & Talks

Explore the square mile from the comfort of your own home in association with the City of London Guides

About our guided walks

For our third series of City Walks we are going to be exploring the area in and around Fleet Street. Plans are afoot to designate this area as a Business Improvement District (BID) to be known as The Fleet Street Quarter. Fleet Street has a special relevance to Temple Bar which started life at the western end of Fleet Street and was resurrected in its current position near St Pauls at the eastern end.

 

 As we transition from the restrictions of Covid-19 to a more normal way of life, we plan to offer a mixture of live street walks and virtual walks. By the end of the series, we very much hope that Temple Bar will be up and running and all events will be run from Temple Bar.

 

Your guides are all experts in the City with a rich and varied mix of professional backgrounds. They will provide entertaining insights into the history, architecture, planning and people that make this area of the City so interesting. Participants will be able to ask questions along the way.

 

 The live streams will start at 5:30 on a Saturday evening with two Saturday morning in person live walks starting at 10am. For those unable to make the real time event, there will be an opportunity to watch later via a recording. Please note that recordings are for the personal and private use of those who have booked a ticket.

 

Overall – excellent lecture – the graphics and photographs which were also excellent

Engaging speaker with a wealth of knowledge and a delivery that made you feel you were being talked to rather than lectured at. Really good .
