The walk starts with the cosy glow of a fire in a Sam Smiths’ Marylebone pub*, then meanders through the back streets of the West End, through Mayfair and into Soho. The walk includes hidden passages, superbly decorated posh shops and lots of historical snippets along the way. As with most of Joanna’s walks there is a food/drink theme plus Christmas traditions and decorations throughout.
The walk finishes in Soho close to Piccadilly Circus tube and near to a good pub* for a warming drink.
*If you're bringing children and want to avoid the pubs there is a cafe opposite the pub at the start of the walk and plenty of alternatives at the end.
