An online walk exploring the architecture and history of London's shapeshifting landscape north of the Thames.

Clinging to the banks of the Thames between the historic hubs of the City and Westminster, lies London's teeming Middle City. Settled first by the Saxons in the 7th and 8th centuries this great third place was known as Lundenwic and by the middle ages it was at the heart of aristocratic life on the river, home to the great palaces of Medieval bishops and Tudor courtiers. Located at the strategic mid-point between commercial and political power, the area boomed in the 18th and 19th centuries as London's great and varied centres of law, newspapers, gossip and entertainment.

From watergates, palaces and hotels to medieval cloisters, churches and Parisian boulevards, this walk explores the multifarious landscape of the northern shore between Charing Cross and St Brides to reveal London's great Middle City through its best kept architectural secrets and spectacular sleeping giants.

An online walk by The London Ambler - Mike Althorpe
