The Blitz Walk


Event Details


Starting at The Fountain, Bart’s Square, our guide will give us a fascinating insight into wartime London. His encyclopaedic knowledge, stories and photographs will bring history to life! We will see evidence of Zeppelin bombs and V-2 explosions and learn about the largest bomb dropped at that time (known by the Germans as a ‘Liebsgabe’, or Love Gift). Stops include Tudor Archway, Bartholomew Close and The Butchers’ Hall; all sustained damage and we will also visit several sites of Wren churches destroyed in the Blitz. Bank and Cannon Street stations did not escape damage and as we continue towards St. Paul’s Cathedral, we will see the National Firefighters’ Memorial and learn about the work of the Fire Services during WW2. On our return to The Fountain, we will pass Paternoster Square, once the centre of London’s publishing industry and the former Central Telegraph Office, both heavily damaged in the war.

We finish at The Fountain and adjourn for a two-course lunch at The Rising Sun in a private area upstairs.

The price per person for the walk and lunch is £40.00.

Closing date: 29 June 2022
