The Monstrous Regiment

St. James's Park tube station, London

Guided by Kim

Short version. The Fight for Women's Suffrage. 

Long version. What a story. What human beings. What a walk. When you look at them (statues and seeing them in your mind's eye) and go over the ground, see where some of the pitched battles were fought, and get a sense, with a shudder, how they were vilified – the word vile is hardly strong enough – you'll be lost in admiration, humbled. Some of it hardly bears thinking about – how they force fed Emmeline Pankhurst in prison, for example. All of it is gripping: death; firebombing; police wading in with billy clubs; tremendous personal cost – families torn apart, for example; the world's most beautiful woman attacked with a knife; astonishing bravery; even Dickens' house figures. Anything else? Yes, best possible guide for this one ("London Walks puts you into the hands of an expert on the particular area and topic of a tour" The New York Times): Kim. She worked in Parliament a good few years. A star Blue Badge Guide, she won the big one, the Guide of the Year Award in her year.

LONDON WALKS PRIVATE WALKS

If you can't make the regularly scheduled, just-turn-up, public Monstrous Regiment – Women's Suffrage Walks do think about booking one as a private tour. If you go private you can have the Monstrous Regiment – Women's Suffrage Walk – or any other London Walk – on a day and at a time that suits your convenience. We'll tailor it to your requirements. And – always with private London Walks and tours – we go to great lengths to make sure the guide-walker(s) "fit" is well-nigh perfect. Ring Fiona or Noel or Mary on 020 7624 3978 or email us at london@walks.com 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. Or indeed a fab present – be it a birthday or anniversary or get-to-know-your-new neighbourhood gift or Christmas present or whatever. Merchandise schmerchandise (gift wrapped or not) – but giving someone an experience, now that's special. Memories make us rich.
