Clinging to the banks of the Thames between the historic hubs of the City and Westminster, lies London's teeming Middle City. Settled by the Saxons 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. From watergates, lost palaces and hotels to medieval cloisters, churches and Parisian boulevards, this walk explores the multifarious landscape of the north shore of the Thames between Charing Cross and St Brides to reveal London's great Middle City through its best kept architectural secrets and spectacular sleeping giants.
