'The London Wall Walk, as it was originally planned in 1984, followed the original line of the City wall for much of its length, from the royal fortress of the Tower of London to the Museum of London. The walk consisted of a series of 23 panels that did not only pick out surviving remains but also pinpointed sites of importance to the history of the city wall and gates. The Walk is about 3.2km (2 miles) long and may take between one and two hours. Wheelchairs can reach most individual sites although access is difficult at some points ...'
