William the Conqueror's London Walk

I gave a walk around William the Conqueror's London on Saturday for London Walks - part of my series of walks on English Kings, following the publication of my book on the Kings and Queens of England.

The walk was essentially about Late Saxon and Norman London. I began with a brief introduction to Saxon London, and then we went to see the London Wall and the Tower of London. The route was:

Tower Hill
City Wall
Postern Gate
Tower Moat
White Tower
Tower Hill
All Hallows by the Tower saxon Arch
Customs House
Billingsgate
London Bridge
Dowgate
St Michael's
College Hill
Cannon St
Cheapside
Old Jewry
St Lawrence
Guildhall

You'll find an image of Will the Conq on the following page:
