On April 2nd, City Guides offered free short walks to the public to complement the annual London Half Marathon.

Walks started from locations in Walbrook and Cheapside as well as Tower Hill where I was stationed along with fellow guides Katie Davies, Rosalind Pearson and Warren Forsyth.

Our stops included the Merchant Navy memorials, Tower of London, public executions, Port of London Authority, Trinity House and the Roman Wall.

In the course of 3 hours we entertained around a dozen small tour parties. It was most enjoyable and we got good feedback.

One intrepid lady came on the walk twice with a different guide each time.

She remarked that it was interesting how two guides could present the same tour stops in very different ways. Am glad to report that she enjoyed both tours.
