#London Walk of the Week: Marx In London - Guided & Curated by @roquesrichard

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…

Karl Marx in London

Sunday 1st May 2016 Meet at Piccadilly Circus tube subway 1 exit

MARCHING, MARKING, MARX'S LONDON! Forward comrades! Through the barriers and into the barrios (of the past) thanks to the stories and many of the Marx sites (and sights!) in London, ending at the magnificent British Museum Reading Room where the great man wrote the world shaking Das Kapital. So where are we? And when? Well, Soho and Bloomsbury a century and more ago. It was here in London that Marx found - in the the words of a leading German Socialist - what he was looking for: the "bricks and mortar" for his ideas in Das Kapital, which some say could only have been written in the London of his time. A time of booming raw capitalism which promoted the accumulation of great wealth - but into the bargain, the abject misery and poverty of the worker. 

Created and guided by playwright Richard Roques.

Sunday 1st May 2016 Meet at Piccadilly Circus tube subway 1 exit
