EVENT: SAVE Walking Tour of the Lost Walbrook River
Lost for more than 600 years, the Walbrook still runs through the heart of the City of London underground. This walk follows its course through the modern streetscape, tracking the history, culture and architecture that mark its path from the Shoreditch city fringes to the Thames itself. The walk will reach the Thames at low tide, allowing a visit to the foreshore to locate the final traces of London’s most significant, yet least known river.
Date: Saturday 4th August
Tickets: £12 Friends and Saviours, £15 members of the public (plus Eventbrite booking fee).
