Join Lou Cohen, a City of Westminster London walking tour guide to find out more about The Grand Surrey Canal.
The Grand Surrey Canal was an ambitious project to link the Thames to Croydon and Epsom and the south coast. It joined the Thames at Greenland Dock, a much older ship dock than St Katharine’s and just along the river was the site of the Royal Navy Victualling Yard. Step back in time with Lou Cohen to explore this old part of London to see the place where Raleigh laid his cloak for Queen Elizabeth I and how the area played its part in World War II.
Tickets cost £18 per person and includes the fully guided tour.
