Make the most of London

 

Susan's River Thames Walk

October 7, 2019
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. 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.

Do you have a favourite London al fresco spot? Tell us!

Here's my review of The Plumstead Pantry
With the sun shining I decided to head on out for a spot of al fresco lunch. We jumped on the bus to Plumstead to The Plumstead Pantry. This is somewhere I have been itching to go for a few months after stumbling across them on Facebook. Having missed their August lates I wanted to take full advantage of the Indian summer.

We were lucky to have a table for two outside in the sunshine, overlooking Plu...

Old Mill Pub, Plumstead

September 17, 2019

The Old Mill pub is a historic pub right on Plumstead Common. The windmill was built on Plumstead Common in 1764.


In 1827, there was an accident at the mill when so many people crowded onto the stage to watch a sham fight that it gave way, injuring a number of them. In 1848, the mill was converted into a brewhouse, having been disused for a number of years previously.


Plumstead Common Windmill was marked on the 1819-43 Ordnance Survey map. Photographs show it was once tied t...

FREE Rembrandt Exhibition at The British Museum

May 2, 2019
The British Museum is a wonderful place to visit, especially when you are dipping in to see something specific.

Many of us Londoners would say they are familiar with the British Museum and have ticked off the main display items but few, I would suggest, have visited Room 90 on the Upper Level. Therein lies a free exhibition on Rembrandt. Dutch artist Rembrandt van Rijn (1606–1669) is among the best-loved artists in the world. 

It may surprise you that The British Museum has one of the gre...
