|Walk Description:||London. 2,000 years old. Higgledy piggledy. History haunted. Secretive in the extreme. A labyrinth where the past lurks in the present. Aggressively modern when you look up. A tear in space-time when you peer round this corner or go down that alley. A city that preserves features like so many geological strata of its earlier selves. A city that¹s not easy to figure out you don¹t reap London in one traverse. Why bother? you ask. Here¹s why: 1) London¹s of world historical importance and 2) depths, intricacies and secrets are always interesting. Bottom line: this is a great walk. It¹s the London labyrinth and London highlights and the shaping past. You¹ll see both the hoary old City andtoday¹s London. Best of all, you¹ll see into them.|
