On July 5, Clive Holliday, a Londoner by birth, told of fascinating places in the capital city that are not usually on the tourist map.

Walking over the top of Tower Bridge was once one of the favourite meeting places for the “ladies” of the town.

Trafalgar Square with its famous stone lions and other towering statues, Regents Park, the Wren Churches - all contributed to the famous stonework visited by so many from this country and overseas.

Street entertainers and itinerant speakers added to the hubbub and tracking down blue plaques, fragments of the old town wall, the Barbican to the quiet oases in old redundant churches.

On July 12, Peter Hammond will escort the group around the interesting places in Nottingham city.
