#London Walks – #LondonRuns - A First Review For The NEW Jogging Tours With LW's @hallett_g

LW's Andy Hallett writes…

As reported on Twitter yesterday, I staged a "dress rehearsal" for my new early morning guided tours for runners. It went really well…

Michele even came back with a review! She wrote…

"Great fun this morning trying out a new London Walks offering, a guided run tour. Super fun and a great way to shake off jet lag."

The first run is from affluent, fashionable Holland Park and Kensington to The Royal Albert Hall, Hyde Park, Speakers Corner and Marble Arch. Meet me just outside Holland Park Tube station at 7.15 am on May 4th. Here's the route we'll be following…

About Your Guide…


Andrew is "the Queen Mum's favourite". Or, in the words of the Evening Standard, "a class act". Astrikingly talentedyoung actor – and budding historian – he received rave reviews for his one-man show, "George VI in Heaven". Andrew is good company: laid back, friendly, fun, at ease with himself and his walkers and his handsome, historic old patch. Add to the mix the fact that he's completely in command of his material and you've got a great walk fronted by a very gifted young guide.
