The Real West End – Covent Garden off the beaten track
Start outside Charing Cross Station. Finish near Tottenham Court Road Station
90 minutes

A walk exploring the lesser known streets and alleyways of Covent Garden from the site of a burial ground and workhouse to the site of a leper hospital and rookery.

We will go on a search for Mercers’ Maidens, hear about pubs allegedly linked by their cellars and spot ghost signs recalling a long forgotten trade the area was once famous for. We will also look out for lamp standards which provoked a strongly worded complaint in the press.

Our walk includes an alley where the buildings have hardly changed in 300 years and which is still lit with gas lights and a court once known as Flicker Alley and now full of second-hand bookshops.
