Event description

Description

How much do you really know about Covent Garden? Today it might be a perfect place for relaxation, shopping and entertainment, but history tells a very different tale.

Join me on a tour through some of the London's darkest slums including stories of haunted theatres, illicit royal affairs, salacious rumours and even a cold blooded murder. Far from a ‘tourist trap’, we’ll be journeying through the lesser-known streets of Covent Garden and the Strand, meeting extraordinary characters along the way.

The walk includes a drink in one of London's oldest pubs where we'll soak up the atmosphere at the end of the tour!



REVIEWS

"A group of friends and I did Katie's on a guided tour around Covent Garden and the West End - an area I thought I knew quite well... I was wrong! The tour highlighted all sorts of buildings, streets and hidden spots that I had never noticed before. I loved learning more about the history of this area, the people that have lived in it, and how it's changed over time. Katie was a brilliant tour guide and now I just need to decide which tour to do next!" Jessica B - Tripadvisor


"A vivid overall picture of what the area used to be like at various stages in its past. It was timed well, with plenty of opportunity to study our new discoveries. She is an excellent, knowledgeable guide, being very approachable and happy to answer questions." B Whiteley - Tripadvisor


"Another amazing experience on this guided tour of Covent Garden with our lovely host Katie. Loads of trivia and interesting facts presented in a very knowledgeable and entertaining manner by Katie will make you see the familiar sights in a brand new light. I would definitely recommend this walk to both visitors and locals." Gazmend - Tripadvisor
