Marble Arch Tube, exit 2 | Map
Tom Lehrer's London is a new London Walk. It's guided and performed by the Mayor of Islington (I'm not kidding about this), who's also a top-flight Blue Badge guide. Here's what guide David has to say about the walk:
An act of homage to the great American satirist of the 50s and 60s. Bad singing will be encouraged as we sing our way around every stop with absolutely no sense of taste or decorum, as Tom would like. In his own words "If, after hearing my songs, just one human being is inspired to say something nasty to a friend, or perhaps to strike a loved one, it will all have been worth the while.”
The Tom Lehrer's London Walk takes place at 2.30 pm on Sunday, February 10. Meet David just outside exit 2 of Marble ArchTube.
