The Bridge


This event is in the past. This is an archive page for reference.

Local history vividly brought to life on these guided walks with writer-performer John Constable, author of The Southwark Mysteries and Secret Bankside.

Exactly a thousand years ago in 1014, King Olave of Norway dramatically destroyed the old London Bridge; an event which gave rise to the popular nursery rhyme. The later bridge, familiar to Shakespeare, survived until Charles Dickens' time. On this walk we'll explore the London Bridge environs, south and then north, of the river that has shaped our history.
