Adam, Fiona, Karen, Russell & Simon present…

Eight weeks of great storytelling – 11am  every  Thursday morning from the  6th May 2021

The team that brought you The Story Of London get Historical Alphabetical in a NEW eight-part series of virtual tours.

It’s not the kind of map that’s useful in the conventional sense – you’ve got the real-life, iconic A-Z map book for that.

It’s a creative interpretation… eccentric… poetical… psychogeographical even (!). Sometimes it’s just plain odd… but like our city itself always fascinating.

 

• It’s a new view of the familiar sights of London Town

• It’s a look at the details of London often passed-by

• It’s a well-ordered inventory of all our capital’s hidden treasures

• It’s Sesame Street meets Dr Johnson!

 

Down these mean streets five guides must go, from the Abbey to Zebra Crossings, from Abbess Close to Zoffany Street.

It promises to be an…

The Deal

Season membership is £32, just £4 per tour. That’s under half the price of buying all the tours individually.

The tours will be recorded, membership will give you access to the recordings until the end of July 2021. So plenty of time to catch up if you can’t join in live one week. Or, if 11am  on  Thursday doesn’t suit you, buy membership and you can watch each tour at whatever time you like, they will be uploaded weekly once they have happened.

From big Streets to tiny Lanes, round Crescents, up Hills and over Bridges. Let us show you what’s there, tell you what was, and explain why their names came to be. High Streets and Broadways to Passages and Closes, one thing we promise, we’ll never leave you stranded in a Cul de Sac.
