Last night we gave you a glimpse of our Haunted London walks and put up a clip of Richard Jones conducting his world famous London Ghost Tour.
This morning we thought we’d treat you to a relaxing journey showing you some of the many wonderful sights that feature on our numerous London walks.
The photography for this short film was done by Sean East, a former Metropolitan police officer who took the photos for Richard’s book Uncovering Jack the Ripper’s London.
The first photograph was taken from the roof of Canary Wharf and shows the view of London looking down and across Docklands from the east of London.
Anyway, enough preamble why not click play on the screen below and watch as the streets of London unfold before you.
The poem that ends this sequence of photographs, incidentally is by William Dunbar. It contains the wonderful quote and sentiment that had been shared by so many people who have joined our Walks “London Thou Art the Flower of Cities All.”
So please enjoy this homage to London. Enjoy the views of landmarks such as Tower Bridge, Westminster Abbey, Trafalgar Square, Lambeth Palace, The Grenadier Pub in Wilton Row and, as mentioned earlier that spectacular view from the top of Canary Wharf in Docklands. London really is, as William Dunbar so rightly observed all those centuries ago – The Flower of Cities All.
