Virtual Mayflower Tour - Hidden London
You should have been arriving in London for your Mayflower Tour. We had so many wonderful things planned for you. As a small gesture of thanks to those of you who have kindly stayed with us, we invite you to a Zoom virtual walk of Hidden London.
We will see the parts that tourists do not normally see. This is not the London of famous landmarks such as Buckingham Palace, Westminster Abbey and St Paul’s Cathedral. This is not on the tourist route and you will have a unique insight to London. We will take you on a tour of lesser knows sites. This is an opportunity to see things that even most Londoners don’t know about. We will take four mini tours of fun and quirky aspects of London
Many people have seen the lions in Trafalgar Square, but do you know about the pelicans, swans and dolphins who live in the heart of London? Will we take a short animal safari right in the centre of London.
Walk with Charles I
Follow the rise and fall of the notorious King Charles I. From the grandeur of his bronze military statue linked to the loving gesture to a former King of England, to his final demise at the hands of the executioner. We will walk in the footsteps of the condemned King Charles I and stand on the spot where he was executed.
Sculptures in the City
The Tate and Tate Modern, National and National Portrait Galleries and Royal Academy of Arts are known throughout the world. But how many people know about the annual Sculpture in the City exhibition? Works of art are on public display in streets throughout the city. We will take a look at some of the works which have popped up on streets over the last ten years. There have been some very spectacular works of art, contributing artists have included: Tracey Emin, Damian Hirst and Anthony Gormley.
Mayflower enthusiasts know about St Mary’s Church and Master Christopher Jones, the Mayflower pub and the descendant’s book, but how many venture into the City of London to find the story behind raising the money for the ship? Without the guilds and finance from the City there would not have been a journey. We will look to some of the significant sites in this often overlooked chapter in the Mayflower story.
