#London Walks Walk of the Week: The #DoctorWho Pub walk

Every Sunday we’ll pluck just one walk from the vast London Walks repertoire and put it centre stage.

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

You can check out the full schedule at

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

The Tardis on Thames Pub Walk.

The Doctor Who Pub walk meets at Westminster tube (exit 4) Saturday 24th September at 7.15pm

Join us on an intergalactic journey without leaving the banks of the Thames never mind the planet! “Tardis on Thames – Doctor Who by The River – The Pub Walk” is a pass to walk in the footsteps of various Doctors, Assistants and even Cybermen!

See where the Daleks attempted to take over the earth in 1964, stand at the very spot where the Doctor and Rose sealed their friendship in 2005. Help to crack the code troubling one William Shakespeare at the historic Globe Theatre. This fun, iconic walk takes us through some of the classic moments in Doctor Who history whilst at the same time taking in a couple of great pubs and several of the capital's seminal landmarks. Just how did The London Eye help save the world? How did the Ogrons walk the Southbank without being noticed? We even come to face to face with the Doctor's greatest enemy of all – ITV! Join actor, writer and Doctor Who aficionado Jolyon as he guides you through the thrills and spills of the cosmos wearing a long scarf and packing at least two packets of jelly babies – would you like one?

About Your Guide

Jolyon is our Doctor Who specialist. And I mean specialist. The author of Was Conceived in a Dalek, he's a serious student of Doctor Who and his world. Let alone a major aficionado (cheerfully admits to "35 years of obsession" with DW). Potent combination, that. He's a big league actor – and a big talent. Jolyon's credits range from the National Theatre to the West End to comedy venues (writing it and performing it – yes, he's done his time as a stand-up) to being a Dame-sel in Dis-stress in Pantoland (every Christmas season since the century began [well, practically] he's donned a frock and caused no end of theatrical mayhem as a Pantomime Dame). And was ever comic actor better named? I mean Jolyon combines Jolly and Joy.
