Description

This walk, led by Anthony Davis, is a neat post-script to our History in the Pub evening on 26 June. (free to LH Members).

We'll walk around some locations in St James’s associated with writers, publishers, actors and bibliophiles, featuring some old books from the buildings we see. We start near the place where Samuel Pepys set his wig alight; hear about Oscar Wilde’s green carnation and Nell Gwyn’s oranges; discover how Dickens got his whiskers and visit the only square in London designed by a poet. This walk starts in Piccadilly and finishes near to Trafalgar Square.

Anthony Davis has an English Literature degree from Oxford, a History degree from London University and is a Fellow of the Society of Antiquaries the oldest learned society dedicated to the material past. He is also a qualified guide
