When? 7.30 pm on Friday, June 5 (British Summer Time)

Where? 1. On your screen (wherever you are: London, Sidney, California, Berlin, Chiangmai, etc.). In short,  in the comfort of your own home (we guarantee you – you will not be rained on). 2. Inside Covent Garden.

Who? Award-winning, top-flight, professionally qualified (Blue Badge) guides Karen Pierce-Goulding and Simon Whitehouse.

Who else? Any number of Covent Garden characters and historically important individuals. And your fellow walkers. Who’ll be from all over the world (which is fun in itself).

What? A guided Virtual Reality Tour of Covent Garden and in particular, several very special interiors. Places members of the public don’t have the sort of access to that Karen and Simon W. do have. You will be shown things. You will hear the story. You will “meet” the principals. You will be taken there. You will return having undergone a harrowing experience. Anything else? Yes, the Tour is interactive. You will be able to interact with Simon and your fellow walkers – ask questions, make comments, etc.

Why? By popular demand. And because it’s fun and fascinating.

How long does it last? About an hour.

How: The wonders of the Internet. In a word, Zoom.

Do I have to book? Yes.

Why do I have to book? Because we restrict the number of participants to 20. It is not a herd experience. We want to get the comfort level of the group right. Get some group chemistry, get people meeting and interacting with their fellow group members (if they want t0), get some group intimacy. For that, a maximum of 20 is ideal.

How do I book? Click on the Eventbrite link here:

Or near the top of this page.

How much does it cost? £8 per person. But get this: it is the most tremendous bargain because if you hold on to your ticket you can go for free on the regularly scheduled, Friday afternoon at 2.30 pm Inside Covent Garden Walk (from Covent Garden Tube) when you are next in London and this wretched pandemic is behind us and we are able to operate the live tour in London. The charge for which is £12. You will get it for free. It’s a no brainer.

Is it possible to book a private Inside Covent Garden Virtual Reality Tour? Yes, of course. Just get in touch with us here at London Walks. Email: london@walks.com    Tel. 020 7624 3978

What if I have further questions? Eezy peezy ontact David or Mary at London Walks. It’s 18/7 and it’s a real person, a living, breathing human being, not some automated, metallic “voice” presenting you with a series of options, “press this button, press that button” ad nauseum.
