On this walk we explore the area around the Tower of London to the east of the City. From the Jubilee Walkway to fashionable St Katherine Dock then along the river towards Wapping where we’ll hear about world trade, pirates, immigration, riverside pubs, and the transformation of an area from slums to film star houses.
Many opportunities for refreshment and toilet breaks along the route.
