Intro Text

Hazel Baker: Hello, and welcome to our London history podcast, where we share our love of London.

It’s people, places in history in 20-minute espresso shot episodes served with a dash of personality. I am Hazel Baker, CEO of London Guided Walks, providing private tours, treasure hunts and Live London Quizzes to Londoners and visitors alike

To accompany this podcast, we also have hundreds of London history related blog posts for you to enjoy at londonguidedwalks.co.uk/blog.

Now we have some exciting news this week. But we don’t have one piece of news. Oh no, we actually have two. The first one was that this week I was a guest on BBC radio London with Robert Elms, talking about the King’s wardrobe. A wonderful, very quiet, historic area within the city of London. And it’s somewhere that we visit also on our tours of Blackfriars; The Best of Blackfriars tour. And I’ll pop the link to that in the show notes. Hear me on Robert Elms: https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p08gg03s 11 mins 28 secs in.

The second piece of news is from Saturday, the 4th of July, we will be back, offering private tours and treasure hunts, all COVID-19 secure.As we prepare to reopen, we are offering a £15 discount for all private tours booked online from now until the 4th of July. No promo code is required. We’ve done all the hard work for you. Simply go to londonguidedwalks.co.uk, choose a private London tour and book securely online. Tours with this offer can be booked for up until December 2020. You just need to book before the 4th of July to benefit from the £15 discount. And for the regulars amongst you, you already know we don’t normally offer discounts. So make sure you don’t miss out. And now on with the show.
