Colin Crosby Heritage Tours

Alleyways of London (A Guided Walk in London)

"Alleyways of London" is one of the very popular Guided Walks in London[ devised and led by the well known Blue Badge Guide Colin Crosby, of Colin Crosby Heritage Tours.

These strolls are a fine way of soaking up some Local History.

The starting point for this walk is outside Fenchurch Street Station.

Colin leads the party around some of the courtyards and alleyways that can get an inexperienced Londoner lost, although they are never far from the main streets.

In particular, there is a fine cluster off Cornhill, and some very atmospheric ones, such as French Ordinary Court.

Colin will point out the location that Charles Dickens chose for Ebenezer Scrooge`s counting house, and the location of one of the notorious Jack the Ripper murders.

This is just one of the fascinating walks that Colin leads around parts of London that are not quite so obvious, and therefore a little off the beaten track. Others include ""Bow Bells", "London`s Lost Riverside", John Wesleys London", "Sweeney Todds London" and "Crime and Punishment".
