London has one of the world’s finest collections of war memorials. Remembering conflicts across the globe, the memorials reflect the cultures of both those who erected them, and those whom they commemorate, from units of the British armed forces to Commonwealth nations.

On this walk we will explore an extensive range of memorials, learn how to understand them and uncover the stories behind them. Join me on a journey that goes from Florence Nightingale to the Royal Regiment of Artillery, from fountains for the Royal Naval Division to the New Zealand bronze standards at Hyde Park Corner.
