Susan's River Thames Walk

Susan's City of London River Thames walk helps us all make sense of the changing scene on London's river.

Susan’s City of London River Thames walk helps us all make sense of the changing scene on London’s river. The Thames rapidly became the most important river in the country following the Roman invasion, and has remained so ever since.

Starting at Blackfriars walk along the length of the City of London’s edge of the Thames to the Tower of London. Susan’s walk puts everything into perspective and looks at how it developed and changed through the ages.

Hear the origins of the nursery rhyme ‘London Bridge is falling down’, visit the location of medieval public toilets.

Marvel at the engineering of London’s first bridge for 100 years. Learn about Queen Matilda and King Alfred and the importance of Queenhithe.

Susan has an easily accessible style and is happy to answer any questions you may have.
