Mark Rowland (guide details)

Pomp and Power:  Tales from the heart of Westminster
Thu, 17 Aug
Your guide: Mark Rowland
Description: 1045. Edward the confessor fled what he saw as the moral turpitude of The City and built his Minster in the West.  600 years later its development exploded and it became the hub of Royal, political, ecclesiastical and executive power.  Join me for a stroll around the grand buildings of Whitehall.
Charles Dickens and the City of London
Sat, 19 Aug
Your guide: Mark Rowland
Description: Dickens was one of the greatest creators of characters in the English language, but one character writ large through his work is London itself.  Join me to hear the stories about the places that had the greatest influences on the man and his work and discover why he called London his “magic lantern”.
The Gentlemen’s clubs of St James’s:  Victorian London’s LinkedIn
Tue, 22 Aug
Your guide: Mark Rowland
Description: We take social networking for granted, but how did the Victorians go about it in the days of the horse and carriage and strait-laced social conventions?  Join me for a stroll around genteel St James’s to hear the story of the explosive growth (and dramatic decline) of the St James’s Gentlemen’s clubs.
Wren, Romans and Liverymen: A brief history of The City of London
Mon, 28 Aug
Your guide: Mark Rowland
Description: All Londoners know that this is the where the real London lies; The City, the “Square Mile”, the historic beating heart of London founded by the Romans.  Nearly 2000 years of history in two hours and a must-do for Londoners and visitors alike, because until you know The City, you don’t know London…
Tracing the Tudors: The real London of Wolf Hall
Sat, 2 Sep
Your guide: Mark Rowland
Description: Wolf Hall brought to life the personal and political machinations of this most turbulent period, but the Great Fire rendered physical traces of the Tudor age hard to find in today’s London. Unless, that is, you know where to look... Join me to discover the places that tell the stories behind the stories of Wolf Hall.
