Last night we went on our final guided walk of the year, this time with Joanna Moncrieff of Westminster Walking, one of the growing number of qualified guides who are London Historians. This bodes well for 2012, because we’ll be working with them to create a programme of tailored walks for members, a very exciting prospect. Anyway, back to the business at hand. One of Jo’s specialities is the history of London’s emporia, pubs and eateries and these were the focus of this particular walk, many shops and streets being beautifully lit for Christmas. As we progressed, we were given many tips on some of the best value for money places to dine and imbibe, even in Westminster’s swankiest thoroughfares. Cream tea for £8.50? You’ll have to go on one of her excellent walks to find out!
Naturally, we ended up in a pub near Marble Arch till late, all Jo’s punters made friends with one another. Just some pictures. I hope you like them.
