In the Depths of Theatreland

On Saturday 13th October, guides from Westminster Guiding Association joined with three other specialist guiding associations to run free walks in London on the theme of Heroes & Villains. Hundreds of people did the day, many managing three walks and a few heroes managing all four. We had fun, and the four associations raised over £1,000 for Help for Heroes.

But that’s not all we do. In Westminster, for example, we offer regular public walks in three of the "villages” of the City of Westminster:

Have you done the main tourist sites? Have you been on big number public walks where there is little chance to talk to the guide? Do you relish seeing some of the out of the way places in London, or places that Londoners rush by each day without knowing their back story?

If the answer to any of these is yes, then you’re a Westminster Guides person!

So for this blogpost, on to Theatreland and a few taster photos from our walk:

A bridge from where to where?
 
That's the place to do it!
 
The "Stage Door Johnnies" didn't enter through here
 
We can see who he is, but where is he?
 
A culture mix
 
The tree-obscured entertainment place has a story to tell
 
And finally, just the place for a post-theatre supper
 

Does that look interesting?

Westminster Guides are:

  • Specialists in the areas covered by the City’s boundaries, including Historic Westminster, the Royal Parks, St James’s, Mayfair, Soho, Covent Garden and the Strand;
  • Enthusiastic and knowledgeable;
  • Keen to chat to all those who come on the walks – it’s a social activity after all!
  • Good value: Walks cost £8 per person, and £6 for concessions.

Why not give us a try? We’d love to see you.
