And in a packed programme today, we’ll discover a Grade I listed eighteenth-century townhouse, a Regency church which is somewhat ‘kinky’…

and London’s first ‘grand hotel’, where Sherlock Holmes’ creator had a ‘Wilde’ time.

And all of these are ‘warm-ups’ counting down to our main feature today:

a visit to ‘Auntie Beeb,’ home of the BBC. You’ll see the original glorious Art Deco building whose statues caused a sensation

and discover the early days of broadcasting. We’ll enter the newly transformed Broadcasting House where you’ll get a glimpse of the state of the art 24-hour live Newsroom to witness 21st-century broadcasting at its best.

For good measure, it’s also a “world” and a “world-historical” tour. Let alone a satellite’s eye view of what’s happened down here and where it happened.

In the words of Lord Reith, the BBC’s first Director-General this walk will ‘inform, educate and entertain!’

That’s a guarantee, a can’t miss – not least because the walk’s guided by Simon W., the BBC’s star in-house guide!

AUNTIES’ LONDON – THE PRACTICALS

Aunties’ London takes place at 2.30 pm on Sunday, October 25.

LONDON WALKS REVIEWS

“Even jaded Londoners find these London Walks a source of astonishing gems of information about the city in which they live.”  Daily Mail, Top London Treats

“Although the big companies tend to just shuttle vast hordes of people about, one tour company does give you an in-depth, personalized insight to the city, offering a dizzying array of themed tours conducted by very qualified guides.  London

“The original and best – there are several companies offering walking tours of London but London Walks (London’s oldest) is easily the pick of the bunch”  London, Cadogan Guide
