Event Details

The St. James’s area has historically been the epicentre of the British establishment - ground zero for royalty, aristocracy and political bigwigs. And for centuries, the neighbourhood was quite masculine, full of shops, restaurants and exclusive members clubs all catering to the English gentleman. But many inspiring and influential women also lived and worked here.

On this walk, we’ll learn about some of these fascinating women – people as diverse as actress and royal mistress Nell Gwynn, mathematician Ada Lovelace and politicians Margaret Thatcher and Nancy Astor - not to mention our most famous queens.

The meeting point is Green Park tube station, park side exit (turn left as you exit the ticket barriers, staying on the lower ground level: your guide will be waiting inside).


Run by Blue Badge Guide Anne Pollak, t
his special walk is part of the celebrations of International Women's Day 2020. A series of wide-ranging walks across London, run by handpicked professional guides to showcase the surprising history of London's unsung hreoines.

Look Up London is about discovering things you’ve never noticed before, we are so lucky to live in a city with layers of incredible history, so take a moment to raise your eyes above your phone and see what you can spot.

My walking tours are fun, full of mind-blowing facts and give you a real flavour of London's history. Here's what people have said on Tripadvisor;

  • "I've been on many many walking tours in London and this was definitively one of the best of them all." Mateus (Spitalfields)

Filled with interesting facts, stories and history lessons, Katie's tours are certainly a step above any others that I have previously been on in London." Alex (Fleet Street and Spitalfields)
