There’s no other place like the south bank of the Thames to bring together the modern and the ancient as Old Father Thames slowly glides along. On this stimulating yet relaxing walk we'’ll start at the magnificent St Paul's Cathedral, cross the river on the Millenium Bridge crossing to Bankside to Shakespeare's Globe, see where bears were baited and hear of the scandals of the Winchester Geese. We pass the site of an ancient prison, see London Bridge, visit an alehouse where William Shakespeare once drank and Pepys wrote about the Great Fire.
To help you relax at the end of it all, you can put your feet up with a cheeky half, at a fine old English pub, the last example of one of the great galleried inns, where Dickens and Shakespeare drank.
