The Editor's #London Diary 2015: May


It's almost 2016! Here's The Daily Constitutional's editor Adam rounding-up his past 12 months in London…


May

May kicked off with that most special of London Walks days… the Triple Decker – leading THREE walking tours in one day.

The Triple Decker can't be pulled off every day, but it's a lot of fun once-in-a-while.

Saturday 2nd May was St Giles at 10:45…



… Fleet Street at 2:30pm…



and Ghosts of the Old City at 7:30pm, three walks all in one day.



London Walkers joined me from Germany, Russia, Shoreditch, Austria, Hertfordshire, Finsbury Park, Maine, Melbourne, County Down and Buckinghamshire. I covered 11.3 miles (18.2 kilometers)

Here's the route…




And here are two tired (but happy) feet on the tube on the way home…






Next… June


A London Walk costs £10 – £8 concession. To join a London Walk, simply meet your guide at the designated tube station at the appointed time. Details of all London Walks can be found at www.walks.com.

  1. Figures you were wearing Docs for the triple-decker. Most comfortable walking shoes/boots on the planet! I've been wearing them nearly every day since I was in elementary school (and listening to grunge for the first time haha).

    1. Great minds think alike! I'm almost a fetishist (!) for 'em and I'm not allowed to get any more pairs until one falls apart (currently rotating 5 pairs). Here's an earlier post (from 2012) about DM's http://londonwalkblog.blogspot.co.uk/2012/08/these-boots-were-made-for-walking-tours.html.

      Happy New Year Vanessa, loving the blog (esp your recent James Stewart post)
