New Walking Tour at The Monument

The Woolmen Walk: Freedom, Lambs & Livery

Have you ever seen sheep on London Bridge? On 29 September, the world-famous Sheep Drive returns to London Bridge (the next bridge along from Tower Bridge), raising fund for the Worshipful Company of Woolmen – one of the City’s ancient Livery Companies.

To celebrate the return of the Sheep Drive, The Monument invites visitors to explore the City and its history on a brand-new walking tour. The Woolmen Walk: Freedom, Lambs and Livery.

Accredited guides will take you on a journey through the historic sites around The Monument, including St Magnus the Martyr, Billingsgate Market and Leadenhall Market, where you will discover the history of the Livery Companies, London’s ancient and modern trade associations and guilds.

This tour lasts approximately one hour, and the ticket includes entrance to The Monument after the Tour. Please note, the tour follows an accessible route. However, The Monument’s viewing platform is accessed by a 311-step spiral staircase, which is not accessible for those with impaired mobility.

Date: Sunday 29 September
Times: 11:00, 14:00 & 15:00
