We booked Tower Bridge exclusively for GASS on Tuesday 5th May

 

For a PRIVATE EVENING PERSONAL GUIDED TOUR 

 

THE PLAN

 

15.00 -.  Meet at The Roffen Club for drinks.

15.30 -  Walk to Rochester Station in time to get tickets and get on the 15.57 Train to St Pancras International

16.35  -  5 minute walk from St Pancras to Boris Bike Station and hire bikes.

17.00  -  Set off on bikes to Tower Bridge.  About a 35 minute ride.

Bike to The Walrus & Carpenter in Monument Street where there are a lot of Boris Bike spaces to dump the bikes.

18.15  -  Dead on - we depart for a 10 minute walk along the Thames Path to Tower Bridge, North Tower.

18.30  -  Tour starts.     20.00  -  Tour ends.

20.05  -  The Perkin Reveller for dinner.  The pub under Tower Bridge where we started the Christmas do.

23.25  -  Last train from St Pancras to Rochester.

 

 

And amazingly the plan worked swimmingly.

We all got there (apart from a couple of Tesla related issues) more or less on time.

Everyone jumped aboard a Boris Bike and we cycled through some beautiful London streets including The Law Courts and The City.

Nobody was knocked off a bike, although near misses were in abundance.

Everyone was impressed by Tower Bridge and we had a great meal at The Perkin Reveller.

 

 

To tell the story in pictures.......

 

BORIS BIKES - Right across town, not a GASS helmet in sight!
