Bizarre Bowes Park - August
Sunday, August 26, 2012 from 11:00 AM to 2:00 PM (BST)
London, United Kingdom
Bizarre Bowes Park
This little area of North London is a total mystery to most Londoners and is certainly completely off the traditional tourist trail. Yet this bit of suburban London is packed with interest. A small and intrepid group of us will be exploring an area that few visitors ever have.
On our morning in Bowes Park we will see Ovi the dinosaur, an odd collection of eagles, view London's most interesting underpants, see part of The New River and a ramshackle "pop-up" church that has recently been saved, look at some interesting late Victorian and Edwardian architecture, stop off for a drink in one the area's most interesting bars, explore Bowes Park's musical links and view the most disturbing window display in the entire city. There will also be an opportunity to shop for delicious Turkish and Greek food in some wonderful and very inexpensive local shops.
Most Londoners live in suburbs like Bowes Park, if you are a visitor and want to see "real London" this tour is for you. If you live in East, South or West London and want to spend a morning getting to know a "new area" then I don't think Bowes Park will disappoint.
The tour starts near Bounds Green Tube, and ends near Wood Green Tube, full details given upon booking.
This tour lasts roughly 3 hours. We will finish in a typical local pub to debrief.
The tour is fully accessible but there are some kerbs and narrow pavements, please contact me if you want to talk in more detail about accessibility.
I absorb all Eventbright fees so the overall price is the same to you, however you choose to book.
If you would rather pay me cash on the day then that is absolutely fine.
You will decide whether or not you qualify for any of the discounts, not me. From experience though you can be very confident indeed that almost all your fellow walkers will be nice and interesting!

When & Where
Discovering London with Peter Berthoud
I am an award winning, fully qualified and fully insured City of Westminster Guide and a member of the City of Westminster Guide Lecturers Association.
My tours are informative, fun, flexible and inclusive. I offer some public walks (such as this one) but the majority of my time is spent writing and delivering personalised tours, for families, companies and educational organisations.
My walks are all available for booking by private groups or individuals. I can tailor any tour to your requirements, make them shorter, longer, include pub stops or finish near a restaurant in the area for example.
I offer many other tours throughout the City, from the Royal Parks to Paddington and Little Venice, Pimlico, Regency London, Political Westminster, Westminster Highlights, Art Tours and Historic Pub Tours. These can all be adapted to suit first time visitors or keen London enthusiasts.
The shortest bookings I generally accept are for one hour, the longest for one week.
I can help you to plan tours in minute detail weeks beforehand or I love nothing more than working with a brand new group, on the day itself, to develop a truly unique and spontaneous tour!
