You can check out the full schedule at www.walks.com

But if you only take one walking tour this week, why not make it…

Mountain Building & Meteorites in the City of London
An Urban Geology Walk
#LondonWalks Walk Of The Week: Mountain Building & Meteorites in the City of London #UrbanGeology @R_Siddall
Aldgate Tube, exit on Aldgate High Street |
Guided by Ruth
This new London Urban Geology walk will look at London’s buildings through the stones used to construct them. We will concentrate on the ‘post-modernist architecture’ of the 1980s and 1990s when exotic stones were imported for decorative cladding from all over the world. We will see examples of spectacular granites formed in the process of building mountains and even stones that were hit by a meteorite 2 billion years ago.
Mountain Building & Meteorites in the City of London 2.30 pm on Saturday, March 24th The meeting point is just outside Aldgate Tube (exit on Aldgate High Street). About Your Guide…
