Guided by Peter G.

Streets Ahead! More trailblazing by the best urban walking tour guides on the planet. In Focus walks are an extremely detailed look – "what I love about London Walks is the degree of granularity you get" (as that American visitor memorably put it) – at the most famous streets and squares of London. And their tributaries. This In Focus walk explores St. James's Square. Ah, yes St. James's Square. Where the West End of London was launched. Where D-Day was planned. Where the pungent Major Percy took the news to the Prince Regent (Percy hadn't slept for a week and when he eventually got out of his bloodied uniform fragments of a man's brains, those of an officer killed next to him, fell out of his sash). Where David's "gentleman's club" is. Where the lady to whom Winston Churchill wasn't gentlemanly lived. Where the little gentleman in the brown velvet coat lives forever. Where the WPC was shot. Where... Well, the list goes on and on. The St. James's Square In Focus walk is a natural pair with the St. James's Street walk. Both of them are guided by actor and star London Walks guide Peter.

ST. JAMES'S SQUARE – THE PRACTICALS

The St. James's Square In Focus walk will take place at 10.45 am on Saturday, January 12. The meeting point for the St. James's Square In Focus walk is just outside the subway 3 exit (outside realbuzz) of Piccadilly CircusTube.

LONDON WALKS PRIVATE WALKS

If you can't make the regularly scheduled, just-turn-up, public St. James's Square In Focus Walk do think about booking one as a private tour. If you go private you can have the St. James's Square In Focus Walk – or any other London Walk – on a day and at a time that suits your convenience. We'll tailor it to your requirements. Ring Fiona or Noel or Mary on 020 7624 3978 or email us at london@walks.com and we'll set it up and make it happen for you. A private London Walk – they're good value for an individual or couple and sensational value for a group – makes an ideal group or educational or birthday party or office (team-building) or club outing.

GIVE THE GIFT OF LONDON WALKS

A private London Walk makes a fab present – be it a birthday or anniversary or get-to-know-your-new neighbourhood gift or Christmas present or whatever. Merchandise schmerchandise (gift wrapped or not) – but giving someone an experience, now that's special. Memories make us rich.
