Quakers in the City of London - A free history walk
Meeting Place: Bank Station - Near the statue of Wellington on his horse

Every third Wednesday, each month.

Numbers are limited, so please email London Quaker walk to reserve your place

Led by a modern day Quaker from St Albans meeting, this free walk explores the little known contribution Quakers have made to the business and commercial life of London and the United Kingdom.

We start at the Bank of England, and wander through Lombard Street, Gracechurch Street, Bishopsgate, Liverpool Street and Moorgate, through Bunhill Fields Burial Ground to Bunhill Quaker meeting house.

A walk of about three miles, with frequent pauses to hear about the people and places as we pass through. The walk is not suitable for young children, especially those in buggies. People are also responsible for their own safety on this walk, which is led by a volunteer.

There are plenty of places to have lunch near Bunhill meeting, or you would be most welcome to join in a light, shared lunch with Bunhill Quakers, which starts at 1.15pm. At about 1.45pm, your guide will take you via the site of Peel Meeting, and Watchmakers' Court to Farringdon Station.

The map shows the position of three City of London Meetings: Bull and Mouth, Gracechuch and Devonshire House, and three Meetings outside the old London wall: Peel, Wheeler Street and Bunhill. Of these, only the newest, Bunhill, still meets. Click on the map to read about the history of Quakers inside and outside the city wall.

You can contact Bunhill's web organiser, Andrew Roberts for any further information.
