Dorothy L Sayers who lived in Great James Street created the detective Lord Peter Wimsey of the fact that on his coat of arms he has ' three mice courant'.... running, surmounted on the crest by a cat 'ready to pounce', his motto is 'As my Wimsey takes me'.
Meet Brian at 7pm, Holborn Tube station. There's no need to book. A London Walk costs £10 (£8 concession)

And if you'd like a completely independent take on Brian's guiding, well, read this Marylebone Journal review of his Old Marylebone walk.
