Have fun, learn lots of stuff and get some exercise!

Fee £14

Meet 11-11.15 Notes Cafe, 31 St Martin's Lane - closest tubes Charing Cross/Leicester Square

With its associations with theatre, shopping and at one time , prostitution, this area can't fail to fascinate. See the most exquisite barn in Europe, the spot where Sherlock Holmes goes in search of a goose and where Henry Higgins meets Eliza Doolittle. Throw into the mix the painter JM Turner, the writer of Rule Britannia, orange seller/actress Nell Gwynn and JK Rowling and you have one of the most eclectic mixes of any area in London.

Laurence is a BLUE BADGE GUIDE full of interesting and unusual knowledge. The Blue Badge course is an intense and rigorous course where guides are tested to the limit and have to prove they can be both entertaining and knowledgeable. Fee £12 payable on the day
