London Bridge Revealed

Guided walk in the company of Travis Elborough, historian and anthologist whose London Bridge in America: The Tall Story of a Transatlantic Crossing brought him to research the riverside.

The riverfront itself has seen substantial change since the 1970s and the demise of the docks and the renewal of London Bridge. It was the time of the Motor-city and plans were afoot for linking the bridge into an urban motorway network.

This area of London's riverside became known as 'London's Larder' for the variety of produce that was transported to the area, and as it lay beyond the City's boundaries, offered up opportunities for numerous leisure activities, including theatre, ale making, drinking and prostitution.
