Event description

Description

Now that summer is here, St James's is celebrating by offering guided walks around its London neighbourhood between June 2nd - August 25th, inviting you to discover a part of town unique in its secrets and stories.

Over three hundred years in the making and still evolving, St James's is an iconic area of central London and to guide you through its hidden gems is your very own Blue Badge tour guide from the British Guild of Tourist Guides.

Blue Badge Guides are internationally recognised for excellence in their field and offer the gold standard when it comes to local knowledge. Our guides will host four walks that will lead you through the best this one of a kind area has to offer, from food & fashion to art & architecture.

Ole & Steen, the Danish bakery in St James's Market are offering one free coffee for every ticket holder. You must show your ticket on arrival to redeem the offer and its limited to one per person. Remember to pick up your coffee before you head on your Sunday stroll.

Women of St James's Tour - Sunday June 16/July 14/Aug 11

Starting Point: Green Park tube station, park side exit (turn left as you exit the ticket barriers, staying on the lower ground level: the guide will be waiting under cover).

This area has historically been a masculine one, home to men’s fashion and accessories, gentlemen’s clubs, barbers and sporting institutions, so it’s easy to ignore the many inspiring women who have lived and worked here over the centuries. This walk seeks to redress the balance, examining the lives and careers of women as diverse as actress and mistress Nell Gwynn and world-class scientists at the Royal Society, Modernist author Virginia Woolf and modern cheesemonger Hero Hirsch.
