"This was another fascinating walk from Hazel on a blustery, wet Easter Sunday. She took us on a tour of the places mentioned in Oliver Twist, bringing it all to life with her descriptions of the sights, sounds & smells of Victorian London and quoting passages from the book. Highly recommended." Christine Bleathman

"Fascinating walk with knowledgeable and friendly guide. Offers an insight into life in the area in the 1830's - at times it's pretty gruesome stuff!" Richard Taylor
