A Meander through Marylebone

Quaint and charming to some, or the home of Sherlock Holmes and Madame Tussauds to others, Marylebone is a must. This walk showcases some of the compelling characters who lived and worked in the area and opens your eyes to changes in social history.

 


Curious Covent Garden

Think you know Covent Garden? Far from the clean and safe environment it is today, Covent Garden used to be an area of slums and danger. Crime was rife and those seeking pleasure did not just go to the theatre. On this walk you will hear tales of haunted theatres, royal affairs and a cold-blooded murder. You will be taken away from the hordes of tourists to discover a world of quieter back streets and alleys where history will come alive.


Whether you are interested in history, the monarchy or architecture, these inspiring, informative walks will show you the real London. With the aim of revealing hidden gems and opening your eyes to both the usual and the unusual, these walks are created to be enjoyable, memorable and fun.

The walks will finish at a pub where we can stop for a well-earned drink and a bite of supper.
The cost is £15 per walk. You can sign up for one walking tour or both. But numbers are restricted so please contact the Clerk’s office and put your names down early to avoid disappointment.

Booking is also available through the members area.
