BEDS AND HERTS AREA City of London Walking Tour and guided visit to Guildhall Art Gallery.
Friday 20 September 2019

 

AREA VISIT

City of London Walking Tour, with Ian Swankie, and guided visit to the Guildhall Art Gallery, on two alternative dates:

Friday 20th September and Friday 4th October

    

The day has two parts:

 City Walking Tour - this is a circular walk of about 90 minutes led by City Guide, Ian Swankie. We will see the heart of this famous and historical financial centre including many interesting juxtapositions of old and new. Medieval buildings are framed and reflected in gleaming skyscrapers. The tour will pass several churches, some by Christopher Wren, ancient alleyways, livery halls, financial institutions, hidden gardens and some world class modern architecture.

 and 

Guildhall Art Gallery - we will have a private group tour by an official guide in the gallery. We will cover the highlights of this hidden gem. The gallery houses the collection of the Corporation of the City of London and they have been commissioning and acquiring art for over 350 years. There is an excellent range of historical and modern works of London subjects, and they have a sparkling Victorian collection including several Pre-Raphaelites. The tour will include the Roman amphitheatre ruins, discovered by chance in the 1980s.

The visit is being offered on two dates and the application form asks you to indicate whether you can make both dates or, if just one, which one.  If you can make both dates but have a preference for one rather than the other, please say so.  This is to enable the size of the groups to be managed. 

The precise arrangements for the day will depend on the number of people.  The maximum size of a group is 30.  If there is sufficient take up on either or both days there will be two groups, one will do the walking tour with Ian in the morning and the other the Guildhall Art Gallery.  Then after lunch, which is not included, the groups will swap over. 

The day will start at 11am outside the Guildhall Art Gallery and will end there at approximately 3.30 pm.  

Cost £25 per person including an audio guide
