Secret Gardens and By-Ways in the City
Tour | The Crypt at St Paul's Cathedral
Thursday 23 June 2011 - 10:30
Hidden behind the City of London's edifices of global finance are narrow medieval alleyways and peaceful hidden gardens. A by-product of the City's wealth is the care, attention, and money poured into maintaining the green spaces, old church yards, and gardens that occupy hidden spaces between the banks and buildings. Led by Blue Guide Diane Kelsey, the tour will weave through the narrow medieval by-ways of the City from garden to garden.
This is a great tour for history enthusiasts who love beautiful gardens and who would enjoy seeing the City of London from a new perspective. Lunch (at your own expense) can be taken in a private room at The Counting House on Cornhill: one of the City's most imposing pubs.
There are two tours: the morning tour, which begins at 10.30 am, and the afternoon tour, which begins at 2.30 pm
