GLIAS WALKS

A series of free Saturday afternoon guided walks looking at the industrial and social heritage of different areas in and around London. The walks start at 2.30pm and non-members are welcome. To reserve places on any of the walks, please email walks@glias.org.uk to get further information. Anyone without email can apply by post to the secretary. 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.

  • 17 July Wed   "Return to Tower Bridge to Rotherhithe". Meet on the Riverside Path by City Hall, SE1, at 6.30pm. In 1977, GLIAS published the first of what became a very popular series of IA walks in London, written by Robert Vickers and David Perrett. Walk 5 from Tower Hill to Rotherhithe, although compiled ca. 1980, was not published until 1984 and a second edition was written 10 years later. Today’s walk starts near the south end of Tower Bridge which is just celebrating its 125th birthday and will follow where possible the original trail. Gone are the working spice mills and chain smiths but many buildings still remain.
