The best thing about walking around town with an expert is that you learn loads of cool stuff that you otherwise would never know. Such as:
- Waterloo Bridge was built by women – and it is coated in a special substance that cleans it when it rains! Ingenious.
- Hippos used to swim in the Thames! No, seriously. And that’s why you may have seen that giant hippo boat floating down the river at some point this year.
- Banksy actually owns the Leake Street Tunnel and rents it back to the borough of Westminster so that people can graffiti to their hearts’ content – legally.
