There’s something to be said about earning your afternoon tea. When you walk for miles all over London in cold weather, you can work a big appetite. Even in rainy weather, London is more magical than ever when you explore the sites of the All Souls Trilogy with a kindred spirit. And afternoon tea at The Wolseley tastes better when you’re in the company of a foodie that can tell you all about the tea sandwiches. The whole experience is truly a double treat!
Garlic Hill and St. James Garlickhythe are two landmark locations forever associated with the formidable Garlickhythe gathering. Including these locations in our journey was “a must.” We have retraced the route Diana might have walked from the Hart and Crown to Goody Alsop’s home. In one instance, we know that Diana took a boat that waited at the bottom of Garlic Hill to go back to the Blackfriars (Chapter 23, SON). The Royal Exchange is featured toward the end of Shadow of Night, but since it’s walking distance from St. James, we decided to include it in the same post.
