Joolz Guides: London Bridge Walk Through History


Another of these fun, quirky videos

One of the many reasons I like these videos is that he visits so many places I used to know years ago. It is incredibly nostalgic and fun.

London Bridge is where London all began after the Romans arrived and set up Londinium.

In this walking tour Joolz takes you to The George Inn where William Shakespeare and Charles Dickens drank and The Tabard where Chaucer started his pilgrimage for the Canturbury tales.

Then walk over London Bridge which is rich with history and past the monument to the great fire of London.

See where the old London bridge came ashore at St Magnus the Martyr and then bend your steps past Old Billingsgate fish market and up to St Olaves where Samuel Pepys is buried with the first victims of the plague.

Then over to London’s oldest church All Hallows By The Tower where Richard the Lionheart’s heart is buried and see a 2nd century Roman pavement!

Finishing off with a pint at The Hung Drawn and Quartered!

The George whilst touristy certainly used to be a great pub. I used to work in this area, brings back many memories.
