A Plumbing Walk around Westminster

You and your guests are invited to join us in a fascinating guided walk around Westminster (from Trafalgar Square and along Victoria Embankment) which will consider cholera, contracts and concrete and how they were dealt with by Sir Joseph Bazalgette in the construction of his mains drainage system which did so much to improve the health of London’s citizens in the 19th century. Our guide, Robert Woolf, will also talk about the modern and older architecture along the way and provide interesting stories about other riverside features. Robert is a qualified and versatile City of London and Westminster Guide, who offers unique walks on a variety of themes and engages with his groups in a way that enthuses them with his stories and the connections he makes with people, events and places. The walk starts at 11:00 at Trafalgar Square, (by Nelson’s Column), and will take about 1¾ hours, ending at Parliament Square close to The Red Lion, the lunch venue, at 48 Parliament Street. Lunch will be followed by a short (and not too serious) pub quiz which will test your knowledge of our walk and the City of London. The cost of this event is £45 per person and includes a two-course lunch with a glass of wine or soft drink. Numbers are limited and places will be allocated on a first-come-first served basis.
