The Bridges of London
by Nick Salmond
Monday 17th January 2022
There are 33 bridges across the River Thames from Dartford to Teddington. Most people can name a few of them, but Nick knows them all. He will take us on a journey from north bank to south bank and back again, and again as he criss-crosses the river and delves into the history, stories, architecture and artistic depictions of these great structures.
Nick Salmond studied Physics at the University of Bristol and has lived in London since 1988, spending most of his career working for BBC News as a Studio Director, responsible for the smooth output of television programmes covering some of the major events in our planet’s history.
In 2017 he began training as a Blue Badge Guide for London. After passing eleven exams he was awarded the prestigious Guide of the Year.
