Bowl of Chalk
I went on a voyage around the East End. I'm not going to spoil it all by giving you a blow by blow recount of the walk but even those of you who think you know the city well will come away knowing something new.
Who is buried in this cemetery? What is the link between Syria and the Moorfield Eye Hospital? Where will you find a portaloo with a Royal Warrant? Did you know that there is still a remnant of one of the wooden streets?
As I said Jonnie is the guide you really want to show you around London, whether you are local or just passing through. He doesn't charge an up front fee, but says you should pay what you think it was worth at the end of the walk. Two and half hours of fun and discovery doesn't come better than this.
