In Focus – Charing Cross Road

Embankment underground station, London (Villiers Street exit)

Guided by Simon W.

Streets Ahead! More trail blazing 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. Today's In Focus walk explores Charing Cross Road – bookshops (this is of course 84 Charing Cross Road territory) and theatres and London's best coffee bar and tailors and its best Deli and Trats and the poster boy for the unacceptable face of the 60s building boom and Crossrail (of course) and spellbinding history. The tale Simon W. will tell you about the Charing Cross Hospital is worth the price of admission all by itself. You'll never forget it. You'll think about it every time you go by there, if only for a second. Think about it with a glow of pleasure – "I'm glad I know that – nobody else does and that's very satisfying." The Charing Cross Road In Focus walk has been created and is curated (guided) by star Blue Badge and prize winning guide, actor Simon W.
