Led by Andrew Davies, broadcaster, lecturer and guide, we start with the creation of a garden city pioneered by the wonderful Dr Alfred Salter and then stand on the spot where Turner painted 'The Fighting Temeraire'. Next, arguably the finest riverside views on London, followed by converted flour mills, where Dickens set the climax of 'Oliver Twist', the River Neckinger, old warehouses in Shad Thames, the former Courage brewery and the first railway line in London.

This is an approximately two hour walk and there is no seating.
