Theatreland – Magic in the Air

Covent Garden underground station, London

Guided by Simon W.

Short version. There’s no business like show business.

Long version. “Theatres are curious places, magician’s trick-boxes where the golden memories of dramatic triumphs linger like nostalgic ghosts, and where the unexplainable, the fantastic, the tragic, the comic and the absurd are routine occurrences on and off the stage. Murders, mayhem, political intrigue, lucrative business, secret assignations, and of course, dinner.” This one’s guided by the one and only Simon W. An actor (and award-winning guide) here’s what Simon said, eyes all aglow, when the subject of a Simon W.-guided Theatreland walk was mooted: “all those theatres, what’s not to like?”

All those theatres plus Theatreland plus Simon W., what’s not to like? But let’s leave the last word to a walker, Kyle Maury, a university student, from Long Beach, California wrote to us last year. This is what Kyle says. “I did five London Walks Tours during my semester in London and loved every single one! …my third, fourth, and fifth tours were with Simon. Simon guided the Ghost Tour, Jack the Ripper, and Tower of London Tours. Simon has a great personality and brings a lot of energy to his tours. He loves to interact with his group by asking questions and lets you engage with him along the way. Simon also has a theatrical flair which is highly entertaining. Simon is also extremely knowledgeable, which you can tell from the three different tours I had with him, which covered a lot of different history.”
