There are a limited number of places available on each walk and booking is recommended. Should places remain available on the day, information on how to join will be posted on the GLIAS website.

GLIAS Wednesday evening walks

This year, as part of GLIAS at 50, we are holding two free Wednesday evening IA walks based on walks created and published by GLIAS in the 1980s and 1990s. In the spirit of earlier years, the walks are open to all and no booking is required - just turn up at the specified meeting place on the day.

  • 19 June Wed   "Smithfield - Markets, Medicine & More". Based on the GLIAS walk created and published by Sue Hayton in 1993. Meet outside the Henry VIII Gate (Barts Hospital entrance), West Smithfield EC1, at 6.30pm

  • 17 July Wed   "Return to Tower Bridge to Rotherhithe". A return visit to another area covered by GLIAS walks in the 1980s and 1990s. Meet on the riverside path by City Hall, SE1, at 6.30pm
