A half day or longer bespoke tour of London’s scientific history. The walk can be tailored to individual preferences, but here are some locations that may inspire!
The Royal Observatory, St Katharine Dock sundial, The Tower of London (observatory), The Monument (Isaac Newtons telescope and physics lab), St Paul’s
Tylers and Bricklayers Sundial (an education in time), Charles Babbage’s house (he invented the world’s first computer in his stable in the 19th Century!), Royal Institution (Faraday’s lab).
Think also about Edison’s Electric Lighthouse. Brunel’s work at Rotherhithe and the Science Museum (where Babbage’s computer now resides) if you still have energy!
“Anarchists, Immigrants, East End Alleys and Jack the Ripper”. A walk through atmospheric 19th Century Whitechapel; the setting for Joseph Conrad’s “the Secret Agent”. A dark world of anarchists, prostitution, murder, but also the energy and vibrancy of waves of immigrants that give the area its vitality. Come and join me. The best two hours you will ever spend – until the next one!
