This walk takes you away from the hustle and bustle of the usual crowded Westminster tourist haunts, into uncrowded gardens, yards, squares and parks. There’s lots of history too – we see what was the poshest street in 18th century London, lined with huge mansions, many of which are still here today. One of them has a close link to Lady Diana. Continuing the royal theme we also see an unusual view of Buckingham Palace. There’s also the best street of beautiful 300 year old Queen Anne houses in London, which still retain lots of elements of 1700’s London. There’s also an old secret service building, a famous hall connected to the world’s greatest Victorian philanthropist, a Suffragette memorial and statue, a famous school, the venue of the first regulated football match, TE Lawrence’s pad, the Houses of Parliament, a memorial to the end of slavery, and the square where the father of investigative journalism lived.
