Event description

Description

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 many of Joanna's walks there is a food/drink theme plus Christmas traditions and decorations throughout!

The nearest tube to the start of the walk is Bond Street, 7 minutes' walk away. The walk starts outside the pub but you might want to pop in for a drink before the walk. The pub is on the corner of Thayer Street and Marylebone Lane.

Directions from Bond Street tube: It is more or less a straight line from Bond Street tube. Cross Oxford Street, and go down James Street (Body Shop is on the corner). Cross Wigmore Street and go straight on into Mandeville Place. Cross Hinde Street and go straight on into Thayer Street. Cross Bulstrode Street and carry straight on. The pub is at the junction with Marylebone Lane opposite Pret and close to a zebra crossing,

The walk finishes close to Piccadilly Circus tube where there are lots of options for post walk refreshment.

If you've done this walk before - and there are some who have done it multiple times - the route is slightly changed for 2019.

*The walk starts outside the pub; no drinks are included. If you're bringing children and want to avoid the pubs there are cafes opposite the pub at the start of the walk and plenty of options at the end.

Reviews from my previous Christmas Walks:

LondonGirl0201 (December 2019) "A very informative and fabulous walk with Joanna who has a wealth of knowledge and it was just so great to get off the beaten track ... Joanna also sends out links and other information following the walk to keep it in mind. I highly recommend."

Melanie A (December 2018) 'I did the Xmas light foodie inspired walk with Joanna Saturday evening.It was magic, fun and informative. Strongly to recommend! Thanks Joanna."

CDub131 (December 2017) Joining Joanna on this walking tour around London was a highlight of our Christmas! Dodging through little alley ways into hidden courtyards alight with the prettiest of displays we never would have found, Joanna’s relaxed, humorous and informative style all added to our experience. Thank you so much Joanna….looking forward to our next walk with you!”

Catherine C (December 2017) “What a great walk, loads of history, places you would never find without a guide. Jo is a great, knowledgable guide, it’s just a fun thing to do. Great way to find pubs, shops, streets that would would not even know were there.”

Margot W (December 2016) “Enjoyed tour, which included some lesser known areas. The guide was well prepared and knowledgeable.”

ljc01 (December 2016) This year was the 2nd year I’ve done this tour & loved it. …”
