We follow the Walbrook, the shortest and most mysterious of London’s hidden rivers, from its source in Shoreditch down to the Thames. This fascinating walk takes us from Silicon Roundabout, the engine of the regeneration of an area that was once one of the most depressed in London. This area housed the theatres that flourished in the golden age of Elizabethan drama and then became an area of workshops and warehouses amongst which are some true treasures of Victorian architecture. We follow the river into the City of London past the Broadgate Centre, London Wall, the Bank of England and a wonderful array of the architecture of many different eras. This is truly one of the most contrastive and fascinating walks you can do in London – a true cross-section of our city’s history.
