Чем вы займетесь

Discover real treasures hidden in London Docklands! We'll have an imaginary journey to the times of prosperity and decline of the Port of London – former world’s largest port! We'll learn what this area of London looked like a century ago and what the life of dockworkers and sailors was during the Industrial Revolution. We will pass by Sands Films studio - production place of the costumes featured in films like 'Beauty and the Beast', 'Harry Potter', and 'Mr Turner'. Finally, we'll have a drink at one of the oldest and most famous pubs in London. The walk will cover some history around Rotherhithe Street, The Ship Rotherhithe, The Angel, Sands Films Studio, St. Mary Rotherhithe Church, Brunel Museum and The Mayflower Pub (drink!).

Где вы побываете

We stroll through Rotherhithe Street and along Thames riverfront. We stop next to Ship Rotherhithe pub, Angel pub and Sands Films studio to hear stories about these landmarks. At the end of the walk we have a drink at one of the London's oldest pubs - The Mayflower Pub. This is not a long walk and we will have plenty of stops, but please make sure you wear comfortable shoes.

The tour was quite interesting and entertaining: we learnt a lot about London history, docklands, sailors and pirates and saw places and pubs which played an important role in the UK and even the US history! A very nice addition to the talk ("the cherry on the cake", as they say) was the invitation of a local mudlark who showed us extremely interesting artefacts found in Thames river. Some of them were from as long ago as Anglo-Saxon and Viking times, some of them were Victorian. That was a really interesting feeling of touching the history with your own hands! Thanks to Julia and Valerie for this amazing experience, much appreciated.

If you are tired of history of kings and queens, this is the tour for you. It tells about the life of dock workers and gives a good insight into some parts of English culture one couldn’t understand otherwise. The guides tell interesting facts from maritime history and stories of local people. I live in the area for four years, and now I see it in the new light. Now I love the neighbourhood even more :)

Julia and Valerie are really passionate about the history of the docklands and walked us through the rotherhite area. Both of them are very knowledgable about the area and associated historical events with various landmarks encountered throughout the walk. The walk itself is pleasurable and the guides are very friendly. I'd highly recommend this walk.

Julia and Valerie took us on a great trip through the maritime history of London! They walked us through the history of Rotherhithe and the Docklands, explaining how London developed as port from Roman times through World War II. The area is now residential, but some artifacts of the era remain. Julia and Valerie showed how the neighborhoods were laid out with docks, wharves, brothels, lodging, and pubs, and showed us examples of some of these. They explained the developing ways these buildings were used to move goods, and the history of the people who lived and worked in them. They discussed river piracy and press gangs with stories, along with the brutal 19th century economics of labor on the docks. Rotherhithe also launched the Mayflower, which became an important part of American history, and features two historic tunnels under the Thames. After the tour, which covered maybe a mile, they took us to a pub for a drink and a chat. The group was fun and chatty. I highly recommend this tour!

This was a great tour from two very passionate and knowledgeable tour guides. After seeing the big attractions of London it was nice to take a stroll through the less crowded streets and enjoy the history of this part of the city. Definitely worth the price for the authentic feeling experince as well as the drink at the end at the Mayflower Pub. Overall I highly recommend it, you'll have fun.

Fun and interesting tour. Both guides, Julia and Valerie, are very friendly and full of passion for Rotherhithe, making the tour very enjoyable. Sands Films studio is full of unsuspected treasures. Ending the tour at this historical pub, the Mayflower, is a good idea. Cheers
