An Eclectic Walking Tour, Finishing With Wine Tasting!

£28 members, £33 non-members

Please book early as Diane’s tours sell out fast.

Your ticket includes a walking tour by Diane, our Blue Badge Guide, and wine tasting.

This tour is open to all ages, but event attendees tend to be 50+. Diane will introduce you to Who Londoners at the beginning of the tour.

Diane will lead the tour in the area on the south side of Tower Bridge. Two “lost churches”, atmospheric cobbled streets, London’s newest theatre, two new hotels in historic buildings, a statue of one of London’s most commemorated but least known politicians, fabulous river views and Victorian warehouses all feature.

Come and hear tales of rags and riches, industry past and present, actors, sailors, felons and firemen.

The walk will finish at The Dixon hotel on Tooley Street, a Grade II listed building and an Autograph Collection hotel. Occupying an Edwardian former Magistrates Court, this boutique style hotel is named after the building’s architect John Dixon Butler. There are modern additions but many original features remain.

The Dixon Courtroom Bar

The Dixon Courtroom Bar

Stepping into the grand entrance hall we’ll see the available public spaces before heading for the bar in a former courtroom, where our wine tasting will take place. There’ll be the opportunity to taste three different wines with some nibbles (nuts and olives) and soft drinks are available for those who don’t drink wine! This old Magistrates’ Courtroom was where petty criminals received their punishment – just take a look at the mugshots on the walls for proof. The original wood panelling remains, and the judge’s bench has been transformed into a bar – The Dixon’s Courtroom bar is a cocktail bar like no other.

***Meet outside Tower Hill Station at 1.30pm by the “Tower Hill Tram” coffee stall. Our afternoon finishes at 4pm at The Dixon hotel, which is within 10-minutes walk from Tower Hill and London Bridge Stations.***
