Event description

Description

On today’s walk we will venture through the streets and piazzas of Covent Garden to discover the story of a very special book of the 18th Century.

Mr Harris’s Book was a list that named the ladies who worked the streets of Georgian London – on this walk we will discover who they were and the buildings, theatres and taverns that they frequented in order to make a living.

We will also look back to the time of the Restoration - where characters such as Charles II, Nell Gwynne and Samuel Pepys helped to establish the streets around Covent Garden as one of the most fashionable and entertaining areas of London.

IMPORTANT: Attendance on any walk can only be guaranteed through pre-booking. If you cannot pre-book here but wish to attend, you are welcome to do so, but you must please give me prior notice of your intention to attend.
