This two-hour walk will explore some of the finest gardens and churchyards in the City of London.

While you're happily enjoying the spring bulbs, summer flowers or autumn colours, the guide will be teaching you a bit about their history.

Note: The walk will start at the City Information Centre opposite St Paul's Cathedral (by St. Paul's Church Yard). There is no need to book; just introduce yourself to the guide outside who will be wearing his or her official badge.

You might like to look at our city guide for information about London's Royal parks and gardens as well. Craig has reviewed many of them on his London blog. He thinks the best ones are St. James's Park and Regent's Park. You might also like his review of Kew Gardens and RHS Wisley (they are both further away from London, but definitely more spectacular). If you'd like to walk around somewhere it bit more atmospheric (but with plenty more weeds and nettles!) then how about a tour of Highgate Cemetery?

 Guest – “Hello could you tell me if its a leisurely pace or fast as I can't walk very fast. thank you”

Admin – “They describe it as "not strenuous"... but you should be prepared for two hours of walking and being on your feet, which can be quite tiring. There will be lots of stops along the way, of course, so the guide can talk about the locations”
