Join Michael and Simon’s guided walk around this feature packed elegant area: 20+ stops, hear the stories behind famous and secret sites. We like to pack stuff in.

Lastly UCL and SOAS colleges.

....after all that we'll relax and socialise at the tastiest best value Pizza in London. 

Meet: Just outside Goodge Street tube station, (Northern line). 

Finish: Near Russell Square tube around 4pm. 

Length of Walk: About 2.5 miles Guides: Simon [masked]) & Michael [masked]). 

Please note: We'll be there 10 minutes early, try to be on time, but if you're running late our first stop is Fitzroy square off Tottenham Ct Rd.
