Read The London Craig blog> Craig’s review of The City  I’ve been here before. Check out my London blog for a review, with photos

This two-hour walk will explore some of the most beautiful 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 the buildings and their garden's history.

If you're into gardens then have a look through our guide to London's parks and gardens. Craig has reviewed many of the biggest parks on his London blog. He thinks the best ones are St. James's Park (read Craig's review) and Regent's Park (read Craig's review).

If you don't mind the travel time then read his review of Kew Gardens and RHS Wisley as well (they are both further away from London, but are certainly more spectacular). If you'd like to walk around somewhere it bit more atmospheric (but with lots more weeds and nettles!) then how about a tour of Highgate Cemetery? Read Craig's review of Highgate to see what it's like inside -- he thinks it's one of the most beautiful places around, despite its lack of flowers.

 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”
