Pomp and Power – a London walk taking in royal palaces as well as sites of demonstration and celebration.
Nelson’s column towers over Trafalgar Square and standing nearby we have the contemporary Fourth Plinth. We will take you on a walk through time and see some familiar sights such as Westminster Abbey, Big Ben and Buckingham Palace. We’ll share stories about these familiar places and about the less familiar. Why did a stables become the National Gallery? How did a woman shed light on poor practices and save many men’s lives? And how a simple memorial captured the heart of millions and was replicated in other countries.
