LONDON REVISITED

Where: CITY OF LONDON POLICE MUSEUM AND SHORT WALKS VISITING 2 WREN CHURCHES BEING ST STEPHEN WALBROOK BEFORE THE MUSEUM AND ST LAWRENCE JEWRY FOR REFRESHMENTS AFTER THE MUSEUM AND A FURTHER SHORT WALK UP TO POSTMANS PARK TO FINISH.

A self guided tour of this small though interesting museum from 11.00/11.15 which should finish by 12.00. We will firstly visit, for about 10 minutes or so, the magnificent Wren church of St Stephen Walbrook then a short walk to Guildhall for the museum visit.
Following this we visit the adjacent lovely St Lawrence Jewry Wren church where the Verger will provide refreshments and, possibly, a short talk about this church.
For the Tuesday visit there is a public organ recital starting at 1.00 and finishing at 1.45 for those who wish to stay for it. I am happy to take those who would wish a shortish stroll to the nearby Postmans Park and return via St Barts Hospital to St Paul’s underground station otherwise people can visit the Guildhall or go elsewhere for lunch.

Meet: Travel will be from Ealing Broadway Station waiting room by Central line to Bank station leaving at 9.40am.

Note: I can only take 10 on each of these 2 trips and intend to charge £2 per person for the cost of refreshments.

I will announce these outings on 14th June and take names/monies on 21st June-if there is sufficient interest for a repeat outing on Friday 6th July I would be willing to arrange one for this date.
