George Orwell's London Walk

http://orwellslondontour.webs.com/

Following a member suggestion, I'd like to suggest to join this walking tour about George Orwell's London. Please note I haven't done this tour before and will be following the walk leader Diarmaid Ward: http://orwellslondontour.webs.com/about-the-tour-guide-2

The cost is £12 per person if the group is made of more than 15 people (otherwise £16).

George Orwell was one of the most influential writers of the 20th Century and his writing was heavily influenced by the long periods of his life he spent in London.

Join us as we follow in Orwell's footsteps and explore how the life, sights and sounds of pre-war and wartime London had such a powerful influence on his work. 

Our tour begins at Great Portland Street Tube Station and takes us through well-known parts of the West End, before finishing at Rathbone Place (close to Oxford Street). The tour lasts approximately two and a half hours, and includes a free copy of Orwell's classic Politics and the English Language.

The tour has positive reviews on trip advisor:

    Great thought-provoking walk. Diarmaid gave the group a good insight into what George Orwell's life was like and where he got his inspiration from. We walk so often in London streets without stopping and looking around and thinking about the history and the people who lived here.
    I liked the idea reading short sections of Orwell's books. The walk was also a good reminder of how honest, independent and straight talking Orwell was. I am looking forward to reading more of his work especially the essays.
    Thanks to Diarmaid for sharing his passion and knowledge of Orwell and to Antony and Marcia for coming along. See you all soon!

    I really would like to do this but I am really concerned about how realistic it is for me early the day after the xmas party
