Join us on a guided walk through the West End looking for pockets of London where time ticks to a different beat.
In a city addicted to speed, we’ll reclaim the right to dawdle and the pleasures of observing. From seasonal change to gradual erosion, we’ll enjoy the ways the capital quietly resists the frenzied rhythms of metropolitan life. We’ll notice architectural details and monuments that pay tribute to the slow. And we’ll celebrate those rebels who rail against the rush with their wilful sloth.
Scheduled Dates 2017: Saturday 8 April, Saturday 1 July, Saturday 7 October and Saturday 11 November. Private Tours available on request 5 days a week.
