Covent Garden as you have never seen it: come and discover its low life, high life and night life!
Covent Garden is much, much more than trendy shops, street performers and London’s most beautiful Christmas tree. Come and discover the many lives of this historic neighbourhood! We’ll learn about the ups and downs of what used to be the “convent’s garden”: its colourful inhabitants – aristocrats, actors, singers, pimps and prostitutes, flower sellers, to name but a few – and its famous and secret landmarks – pubs and inns, coffee houses, theatres, gin dens, churches, and courtyards…
Advice to participants:
– Wear ultra-comfortable shoes.
– Check weather forecasts and make sure you have warm and waterproof clothes if necessary. Being cold on a walking tour can spoil the entire experience.
– Do not hesitate to bring a little snack with you (nuts or biscuits) and a flask of your favourite drink.
