Ours is not a journey of virtue, ours is a journey of vice. Indeed a journey of the capital vices or cardinal sins, otherwise known as the Seven Deadly Sins, leading us into the abyss of hell. We will visit all seven of them: Lust, Avarice, Sloth, Envy, Gluttony, Anger and Pride, and the people who committed them. People driven by their insatiable passions. The reset after each of the other six is lust. (Picture every other bead on a necklace being a hot, blushing red.) So between each of the other deadly sins and their venues, their stops…it’s, oh boy, lust and more lust. Piled high, stacked up because lust powered, whipped, frenzied the men and women of the City of Westminster like no other sin.
At the end of the tour – the climax – Ulrike or Ian or Adam reveal the one person in history who incorporated all of the Seven Deadly Sins in his (or her) life. And they’ll shed a lot of light – not all of it lurid – about his (or her) personal influence on the history of London, the city built on sin.
Needless to say, you will meet royalty, But also artists, writers, heroes and even the original “It” girl of the Georgian period.
Join us on our sinful walk through Covent Garden and beyond. A journey – this is a guarantee – you will remember!
