The Suffragettes Walk

suffragette polling stationThis is our showcase walk. Our owner  and walks guide Ian is a leading expert on all matters Suffragette, and his novel Suffragette Autumn Women’s Spring is highly regarded.

Much of the Suffragettes’ fight for “Votes for Women,” took place in Central London. We show you where it all happened, amidst some of London’s most famous landmarks including Trafalgar Square, Downing Street, Whitehall & the Houses of Parliament. We show you a large number of photographs from the times, which bring the streets of Edwardian London to life. We tell you all about the big events and major characters involved. Brave women, scheming politicians, great marches & speeches, violence, arson, prison, force feeding, the Pankhursts, Asquith, Churchill, it’s all here. We tell you a shocking, unknown story about Mr Churchill’s views on women gaining the vote, and you find out how and why women finally won the vote.
