11th / 12th April
There are a couple of weekend walks in the middle of April, that I haven't mentioned. Beginning with the morning walk from Trafalgar Square to St Paul's cathedral there were a couple of people returning for their second walk with me. Lindsay, a student from the States studying in London was one, and another was Lilach from Israel, who brought her son along. I took the photo of the group standing outside Apothecaries Hall in the City of London.
Next up was a group of four, consisting of Tracey and Paul, Greg and Andrea for the walk tat takes in Bankside and Borough to the south of London Bridge. They are standing in the courtyard of the George Inn, a 17th century National Trust owned pub just off Borough High Street.
For the Sunday east London walk, there was another group of four (one of them declined to be in the photo) and I took their photo on Princelet Street in Spitalfields.
18th / 19th April
The morning walk on Saturday 18th April was an all English affair, with Sally and Rob in London for the day from Cambridgeshire and Paul, Jo and Andrew who were whiling away a few hours before going to watch their home team Reading play Arsenal at Wembley Stadium in the semi final of the FA Cup (unfortunately, Reading lost). I took their photo at the end of the walk outside St Paul's cathedral.
Talking of St Paul's cathedral, that's exactly where I took the photo of Michael & Susy that afternoon before heading over the Millennium Bridge.
Finally, Annie and Pete contacted me about joining the east London walk. They had actually already done the walk before and as it happened, it was just them, so we mixed it up a bit and headed up to Hoxton and popped in to the Geffrye Museum, a museum of the home. It's a unique museum housed in an old 18th century almshouses, that allows you to walk through the living rooms of London homes from the 1600s to the present day. They currently have an exhibition which is on until 12th July entitled 'Homes of the Homeless: Seeking Shelter in Victorian London'.
