Join City of Westminster Guides Joanna Moncrieff and Ray Coggin on a special tour of London's best Christmas Lights in order to raise funds for this very worthwhile charity.
The walk starts with the cosy glow of a fire in a Marylebone pub*, then meanders through the back streets of the West End, through Mayfair and into Soho. The walk includes hidden passages, superbly decorated posh shops and lots of historical snippets along the way. The theme of Christmas continues throughout the tour and there will be a mince pie or two to help us on our way.
The walk finishes in Soho halfway between Oxford Circus and Piccadilly Circus tubes and near to a good pub* for a warming drink.
*If you're bringing children and want to avoid the pubs there is a cafe opposite the pub at the start of the walk and plenty of alternatives at the end.
