Richard III

Richard III is the only London Walks guide to have addressed the United Nations and make the cover of Newsweek. He’s the scion of a Lord Mayor of London, a stand-up comic, and a writer, actor and director. And he’s got an alter ego – a member of the Dickens Pickwick Club, he’s Mr. Jingle. But why not hear it from him – here he is on our Meet Your Guide show.
