#London Walk of the Week: Aunties' London

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

But if you only take one walking tour this week, why not make it…


Sunday 31st January 2:30p.m

Oxford Circus Tube, exit 8

And in a packed programme today, we'll discover a Grade I listed eighteenth century townhouse, a Regency church which is somewhat 'kinky'_ and_ London's first 'grand hotel', where Sherlock Holmes' creator had a 'Wilde' time.

And all of these are 'warm ups' counting down to our main feature today: a visit to 'Auntie Beeb', home of the BBC. You'll see the original glorious Art Deco building whose statues caused a sensation and discover the early days of broadcasting.

We'll enter the newly transformed Broadcasting House where you'll get a glimpse of the state of the art 24 hour live Newsroom to witness 21st century broadcasting at its best. In the words of Lord Reith, the BBC's first Director General this walk will 'inform, educate and entertain!' That's a guarantee, a can't miss - not least because the walk's guided by Simon W., the BBC's star in-house guide!

A London Walk costs £10 – £8 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
