Every Sunday we’ll pluck just one walk from the vast London Walks repertoire and put it centre stage.
You can check out the full schedule at www.walks.com.
But if you only take one walking tour this week, why not make it…
A SOHO SAUNTER
Top of the morning to you 10.15 am on Fridays from Leicester Square Tube, exit 1 (meet by Wyndham's Theatre)
The brush that painted London sober, sombre and genteel missed Soho. What a delightful hotch-potch the place is. A graceful old square and courtyards and passages that burrow unpredictably between the streets...and everything humming with life. Shutters going up and flower boxes being watered, freshly baked bread carried into restaurants, waiters in white aprons serving Turkish coffee at sidewalk cafes, Chinatown bestirring itself, the colour and clamour of Berwick Street market (if it weren't for the Cockney accents you'd think you were in a Morroccan souk). What a tonic!
The Soho Saunter Walk takes place every Friday morning at 10.15 am.
Leicester Square Tube is on the Piccadilly and Northern Lines
A London Walk costs £9 – £7 concession. To join a London Walk, simply meet your guide at the designated tube station at the appointed time. Details of all London Walks can be found at www.walks.com.
