1000 YEARS OF DESTRUCTION, CONSERVATION AND RESTORATION IN ONE HOUR!
Westminster was home to a monastery over 1000 years ago and during this evening’s stroll we will see an area of importance due to its links with Royalty and democracy. We see some striking memorials and statues and we trace the damage and restoration of key buildings damaged during World War II. Our destination is tonight’s concert venue, often referred to as Queen Anne’s footstool and its nearby former graveyard.
JANICE LIVERSEIDGE is a Blue Badge Guide and Director of Communications and Marketing at the Royal Society of Medicine. She is a Handel enthusiast and very knowlegeable about London.
