Description

Behind the Stucco: the scandals of Belgravia

Join Michael as he looks at the scandals that have shaken ultra-posh Belgravia.

Discover where the murder took place that lead to one of the most famous disappearances in British history. The peer who was friends with the Krays, and the pub where the Great Train Robbery was planned.

This walk takes in some of the most impressive squares and streets in London and over 150 years of scandals that took place behind their stuccoed facades.

The walk starts at the front of Victoria Railway Station. Pre-booking essential. Exact meeting point given on confirmation.

Reviews:

A fascinating walk , led by a very well-informed and most engaging guide, Michael Duncan. If you love learning about scandals, sexual and financial, and see where they happened, this is absolutely the walk for you! Brilliant, shocking and entertaining stuff!

Reviews of other walks:

"Michael Duncan's Spies of Mayfair walk on Saturday was superb: intelligently conceived, well researched and genuinely fascinating. It's a must for all Cold War fiends Footprints of London are such a great organisation, offering something different at an excellent price. We've done two of their walks now and are looking forward to trying more."

"I loved this walk and the information provided. I have lived and worked in London all of my working life and had no idea I had walked in the footprints of some of England's most notorious spies. Highly recommended in this mixture of very busy and very quiet streets."

"This is a really fun and interesting walk. Michael is very knowledgeable, we learned a lot - not only about the spies and Mayfair, but also history and other interesting facts. I recommend it to anyone!"

Just finished a walk with Michael about Savile Row - truly wonderful. Informative and informal. Michael made the 1.5 hour walk fly past. Can't wait to go on one of his other walks. Highly recommended (21st January 2017 FACEBOOK)
