Richard III

Richard III is the only London Walks guide who – like the Romantic poet Lord Byron – had a club foot, was a torturer, addressed the United Nations, was on the cover of Newsweek and was outed as recommending kidnapping cats. For good measure 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.
