A City of London Festival guided walk with John Constable, crossing London Bridge to explore how the river has shaped the history of The City and Bankside.

From the atmospheric church of St Olave Hart Street to stunning views of The City from south of the river, the walk focuses on London's ancient links with Scandinavia and especially St Olave, the Norwegian King who destroyed the old London Bridge giving rise to the famous nursery rhyme.

Writer and performer John Constable is the author of Secret Bankside - Walks In The Outlaw Borough and has conducted many popular walks for the City of London Festival.

This year his walks link these fascinating, contrasting yet inextricably linked, parts of London.
