In Focus – Gower Street

Euston Square tube station, London

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 Gower Street. 1780s. London's longest sets of unbroken Georgian terraces. The "Godless Institution of Gower Street." "Gower Street's edifying museums make it a miniature South Kensington" (plenty of skeletons and mounted animals, including the marsupial wolf and dodo. Darwin. Orwell. Slade School of Art. Bentham ("present, not voting"). Pre-Raphaelites. Itaiian patriot Giuseppe Mazzini. One of Dickens' most traumatic memories. Women in Love. Cap'n Dick and "Catch-me-who-can." Ends London's most perfect, most beautiful square. Star Guide – actor and award-winning Blue Badge, Simon W.
