London, EnglandGet tickets!
-PLEASE NOTE UPDATED START TIME AT 2PM-
Join Tom Bolton, author of Strange Attractor Press' 'London's Lost Rivers: A Walker's Guide' for a quest to find the long lost Neckinger somewhere between Waterloo, Elephant and Castle and Bermondsey.
Discover why no-one can find the lost river's source and why its name is a mystery. Hear about the radicals and visionaries who lived in its neighbourhood, visit what used to be the smelliest neighbourhood in London (now much more pleasant), and get caught up in the tail end of Oliver Twist. All in 2 hours and 3.5 miles of SE1.
Time02:00 PM to 04:00 PM

Meet next to the small pier that projects into the Thames from Bernie Spain Gardens, an open space on the South Bank between Gabriel's Wharf and the Oxo Tower. 5 minutes walk along the river from the Royal Festival Hall.
