BRING YOUR BABY GUIDED LONDON WALK: “Call The Midwife” Real-Life Locations

May 8 @ 11:00 am - August 5 @ 2:30 pm

£20

Bring Your Baby Guided London Walks are sensitively devised to suit parents and carers of even the tiniest babies to enjoy London’s history.

Walk starts: Outside ‘All Saints’ DLR station
Walk ends: ‘East India’ DLR station

This walk is scheduled for 3 and a half hours as we have a leisurely stop for coffee and lunch at ‘Poplar Union’ where there is also an amazing playground next door.

‘Bring Your Baby’ Guided London Walks are sensitively devised to suit parents and carers of even the tiniest babies to enjoy London’s history. We can stop whenever you like to feed and change – without the stress of feeling you are holding up the group. Patience and baby’s needs are at the forefront of each walk.

You are welcome to bring friends and family who do not also have a baby.

Here’s what you’ll see and hear:
– The ACTUAL ‘Nonnatus House’, where the nuns and nurses lived… and the parish hall used for antenatal classes, both still standing in Poplar.
– The streets where Chummy learned to ride a bike and knocked over her future policeman husband, Sergeant Noakes. Also see where his police station was, just around the corner from these streets.
– Chrisp Street Market, where the twins with the same husband, Meg ‘n’ Maeve had a fruit & veg stall… where ‘Frank the Fish’ from the Frank and Peggy workhouse story had a fresh fish stall… and where Sister Monica Joan stole a bracelet.
– All Saint’s Church, where Tom is curate, where Tom and Barbara, Chummy and Sergeant Noakes get married, where Reggie’s mum dies and is buried, where Sister Monica Joan causes a disturbance.
– The site of Poplar Workhouse which treated characters such as Frank and Peggy, Jane and Mrs Jenkins so badly.
– ‘Stinkhouse Bridge’ and the Limehouse ‘Cuts’, where poor Mary slept when she first came to London… and where she met Zakir, and was tricked into prostitution on Cable Street.
– 1930s ‘walk-up’ blocks of flats, such as those lived in by Len and Conchita Warren and their 25 children!
– The Mission to Seamen’s Institute, where everyone holes up during the big freeze.
– The remains of East India Docks, where Kirsten Bjorgsen, the Swedish captain’s daughter, gave birth on the ship.
