St. James' Park underground station, London (Westminster Abbey/Broadway exit, opposite 40 Broadway)
Guided by Stephen
Virginia Woolf’s novel Mrs Dalloway is a tour de force. Literary modernism reaches its peak of perfection in that book – on that walk through London on that day in 1923. We walk with Mrs Dalloway. Walk her London. See it with her eyes.
The walk is guided – and performed – by Steve N., a Royal Shakespeare Company actor. That’s important because Mrs Dalloway is essentially a prose poem – arguably the most beautifully written novel of the last 100 years.
In situ Steve* will read the relevant passages to us. The words, the delivery, the setting – everything comes together. Special walk, special couple of hours. More than special – unforgettable.
*Fiercely intelligent, terrifyingly talented, distinguished actor. Royal Shakespeare Company, West End shows, lots of films, Sir Peter Hall’s Shakespeare productions, etc. Best ear ever. His impersonation of John Lennon is a resurrection. Doesn’t just guide Shakespeare, performs him. Brilliantly (on his Sunday afternoon Shakespeare’s & Dickens’ City walk – but see for yourself, here’s the video).
The meeting point for the Mrs Dalloway’s London walk is just outside the Westminster Abbey/Broadway exit of St. James’s Park Tube.
If you can’t make one of the regularly scheduled, just-turn-up, Mrs Dalloway's London it can always be booked as a private tour. If you go private you can have the Mrs Dalloway's London 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 [email protected] 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.
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.
