We had a leisurely stroll along the bank of the Thames as part of the Brunel guided walk which took us from Bermondsey Station to the Brunel museum. Our guide was the inimitable actor and singer/songwriter, Tim Thomas. One of his claims to fame, besides appearing in Four Weddings and a Funeral, was that he co-wrote the theme to Rainbow, the 1970s cherished children’s TV programme! Tim regaled us with a rich history of London, the Thames and the Brunel family – engineers extraordinaire! A most pleasurable and informative morning.
Later, we pottered around the Maltby Street Market at the Rope walk – well worth a visit if only to try the pulled pork burger dished up by African Volcano! Nom Nom.
