In Focus – Piccadilly

Green Park tube station, Londonn

Guided by Russell

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. This In Focus walk explores Piccadilly, from Number 1 London to the Hub of the British Empire. Let’s see, what have we got here? Item: an ancient route known as “the way to Colnbrook.” Item: it’s all in the names. Item: starched collars (or were they pickadilla cakes?). Item: Crown property. Item: Palladian architecture. Item: London’s grandest bookshop. Item: its grandest grocers. Item: its grandest arcade. Item: a seminal moment in the history of English literature. item: a clutch of learned societies. Item: one of London’s greatest art galleries. Item: an architectural game changer. Item: the Via Veneto of the rich and famous – where they lived and shopped. Item: a hugely important “Academy.” Item: the Hard Rock cafe. Item: Piccadilly polari. Item: the most exclusive gentlemen’s apartments on the planet. Item: stunning decorative details on building after building. Item: a 3-year-old waving to Grandpa England. Item: well, you get the idea. The Piccadilly In Focus walk has been created and is curated (guided) by by top flight Blue Badge guide Russell.

 

LONDON WALKS PRIVATE WALKS

If you can’t make one of the regularly scheduled, just-turn-up, public Mountain Building & Meteorites in the City of London walks it can always be booked as a private tour. If you go private you can have the In Focus - Piccadilly walk – or any other London Walk – on a day and at a time that suits your convenience. We’ll tailor it to your requirements. Ring Fiona or Noel or Mary on 020 7624 3978 or email us at privatewalks@walks.com and we’ll set it up and make it happen for you. A private London Walk – they’re good value for an individual or couple and sensational value for a group – makes an ideal group or educational or birthday party or office (team-building) or club outing.

GIVE THE GIFT OF LONDON WALKS

A private London Walk makes a fab gift – be it a birthday or anniversary or Christmas present or whatever. Merchandise schmerchandise (gift wrapped or not) – but giving someone an experience, now that’s special. Memories make us rich.
