Piccadilly Circus underground station, London (exit 4, Eros exit – between the world-famous Eros statue and the Criterion Restaurant canopy)
Guided by Dr Barry
Short read: Death of a Dissident
Long read: On the trail of polonium, perfidy and poison. He was the victim of a tiny “nuclear bomb.” His name was Alexander “Sasha” Litvinenko. He was a former Russian Intelligence officer. He came to London and turned his coat. It cost him his life. His work – and his death – opened a window onto the dark heart and the long arm – the strong-arm – of the Putin Kremlin. This walk, guided by a Public Health Physician,* follows the trail of that murky world of international espionage and its denouement in UCL Hospital, where a once fit 43-year-old lay gaunt, bald and dying. It’s a trail where a Geiger counter wouldn’t come amiss. A trail through the streets of Mayfair, a trail that leads through offices and nightclubs, to end up in Grosvenor Square where the nefarious deed was done. *Professional medical expertise counts for everything on a walk like this. Dr Barry knows about Polonium 210 – how it’s “administered”, how it’s tracked, what it does, when it’s treatable.
Putin’s London – Polonium, Perfidy & Poison takes place at xxxxx on Sxxxxx. Meet Doctor Barry just outside the Eros exit of Piccadilly CircusTube.
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 Polonium, Perfidy & Poison – Death of a Dissident 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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
