Catholic History... all around us in London. Come on the next Catholic History Walk! Thursday, October 15th. Meet at 6.30pm at the church of Our Most Holy Redeemer and St Thomas More, Cheyne Row, London SW3. We will be walking in the footsteps of St Thomas More, and the tour starts with a look round the church named in his honour, after which we will go down along the river, vsiting his statue on the Embankment, and Chelsea Old Church where he used to serve Mass. We'll finish at Allen Hall, the Westminster diocesan seminary, where we'll have prayers by lamplight around the mulberry tree in what was once More's garden.

No need to book - just turn up. Wear comfortable shoes. The Walk lasts about one and a half hours. We'll be walking whatever the weather!

Please take lots of pictures, St. Thomas is my favorite male saint.

I've had the privilege of twice visiting St. Thomas More's cell in the Tower and praying at his tomb, the second time with my wife; it had a profound, unpredicted impact upon her. Unfortunately, work no longer takes me London, but I'm currently considering an assignment that would do so again. So perhaps I'll join you on one of your future walks, Joanna!

I hope to join the walk tomorrow. Am I right in thinking that it does not include a visit to St Thomas More's cell? I was disappointed to find out recently that this can only be visited in conjunction with a whole visit to the Tower, crown jewels etc.

Are any London parishes allowed a special visit to the cell?
