MONTHLY MEANDERS IN LONDON

with SARAH FORDHAM

Each month I lead an historical walk around a different area of London looking at both well known and less familiar buildings. The hidden streets, squares and houses behind the famous facades are intriguing especially when accompanied by tales of those who have lived and worked in them.
