About the event
The Thames has been called the heart, soul and lifeblood of London. On this unusual walk Geoff will explain how The Thames was worshipped as a god by Lambeth’s earliest inhabitants and how the idea of the River as a sacred place has persisted throughout history to the present day. We will also discover numerous ways that people have attempted to cross, travel along and tame the river with very mixed success. We will learn how the Thames can be a killer or a saviour, and also a great source of inspiration to artists and poets.
