Virtual visits

We are not able to offer visits at present but some of you may have experienced virtual visits and tours on Zoom. Although not a substitute for the real thing, they nonetheless can give a "feel" of walking round a new location. If you are missing favourite old haunts or are keen to discover new ones there is a wealth of choice. e.g. London Walks, Footprints of London.
