Victorian Covent Garden Walk
- The age of improvement is upon us
Embark on this 90-minute private walking tour the age of improvement. We delve into the underworld of Music Halls, the introduction of ice cream to the masses and the fortitude of Victorian engineering.
Your professional tour guide will help you master the back alleys, away from the wide shopping street you can easily imagine the characters who lived and worked in the area.
You will explore some of the beautifully maintained Victorian gardens, discover their hidden secrets before venturing through some residential streets, once the homes for artists Samuel Clarkson and William Etty and workplaces for literature giants Rudyard Kipling and Charles Dickens.
Stand where the Thames used to dominate, take in the messy madness of one of the most famous London markets and count the fair maidens on the way.
