A London Guided Walk 24th May 2023 – Secrets of Fitzrovia
Today this vibrant area, formerly known as North Soho, is home to creative industries and medical research. Over its 200-year history, it has also hosted revolutionaries, Bohemians, and eccentrics, and provided the location for Victorian sex scandals and heartbreaking tales of the workhouse.
During this 90-minute walk, you will hear more about the Latin American freedom fighter who may also have been the lover of Catherine the Great of Russia, and the gay bordello that provided extra pocket money for telegram boys. You will see notable classical and modern architecture, and pause to have your senses bamboozled outside a neurological research institute while finding your way to the Tavern that gave its name to a notorious set of writers, artists and drinkers – the Fitzrovians.
The guided tour will end at the Fitzroy Tavern where you can enjoy a drink and mingle with friends. Places limited to 25, book early to avoid disappointment.
Costs:£20/head only a few places left, to book click here
