BERMONDSEY, SHAD THAMES & THE RIVER

Roger Young is organising another Andrew Davies walking tour - Bermondsey, Shad Thames and the River.

Once a little dingy, Bermondsey with its fabulous river views is now achingly fashionable.
• London's first railway line with its beautiful brick arches plus the new swish London Bridge station
• where JMW Turner painted The Fighting Temeraire
• where Bill Sykes met his end in Oliver Twist
• from slum dwellings to garden city
• Bermondsey High Street, full of art galleries, museums, boutiques and fancy restaurants
• converted industrial buildings such as breweries, a leather market, grain silos and grand Victorian tea-warehouses
• Vinegar Yard, the River Neckinger and Bermondsey Square
• a Thames stroll.

The cost for the coach and the tour is £35 - a £10 deposit to secure your place.
These trips are very popular and sell out fast so contact Roger to book your place.
