BLACKFRIARSWALK REVIEWS

 
Blackfriars City of London Walk

"Good history, good company, good fun. Thank you!" Michelle, USA

"Great! My first ever guided walk and I really enjoyed it rain an' all! Hazel is an excellent guide and it was marvellous" Dharshani, Harrow

"This guided walk was fun, informative and very interesting. The timing of this walk was perfect, a very quick 90 minutes but time flies when you are having fun." Karen, Greater London

"What a great thing to do on a Saturday afternoon. I found the walk to be the right amount of time - I have been on two hour London walks and I have to say that they felt too long. Hazel is enthusiastic, very knowledgeable, has a great personality and presents the information with humour. She encouraged questions and enjoyed interacting with the group which made the whole thing seem more personal. I only wish I had had time to join her and others for a drink at the end. I will certainly look out for future walks led by Hazel!" Anonymous 

"Lovely walk around parts of Blackfriars you would most probably be unaware of plus loads of informative knowledge finished off with a G+T in lovely pub. Hazel enthusiastic as always. Great way to spend a Saturday afternoon." Anonymous

 
 

"Hazel has wonderful knowledge and a real passion for history. The 90 minute tour was very informative, nicely explained and illustrated. During the walk the group came across a man who was minding his own business cleaning up a stash of clay pipes and broken bits of pottery which he had discovered. Added to the history. Blackfriars is one area that has greatly changed. It would be lovely to go back in time to see the old beauty as it was described by Hazel." Anonymous
