WALKING WITH POPPINS - Part of the Literary Festival Walks

Australian born actress and writer PL Travers made her mark on the world when she introduced a magical, enchanting, yet stern nanny who became the model for English nannies for the last hundred years! Walt Disney added a bit of whimsical Hollywood magic and the talent of Julie Andrews to create a classic film still enjoyed by families today, and will celebrate it's 50th anniversary in 2014!

This walk has been created to combine literary knowledge, film trivia and a few sing-a-long songs and is set on the greatest backdrop - the City of London. The books were based with real places in mind and so we visit places and spaces that may have been featured had the film been made here. 

The perfect walk for families and those wanting to have a fun time, this is not a typical, stuffy literary walk! 

Starting at St Paul's Station the walk takes one and a half hours. Book your place and confirm that your very own Singing Nanny will meet you for your outing in the City, with a few surprises along the way. 

You can check travel options at the Transport for London Journey Planner

This walk will take place rain or shine, please dress appropriately to avoid discomfort!
