The history of Covent Garden is truly beautiful, and there are some lovely maidens with close connections to this wonderful area. Look beyond the shops, street performers and tourists to uncover a bouquet of social history on this delightful walking tour.
Your guide is a shabbily dressed flower market girl from days gone by, eager to tell the story of the ladies and gentlemen who often trodded the cobble streets of Covent Garden. Hear about the famous Fair Lady of them all... Eliza Doolittle. Visit the former Flower Market and Fruit & Vegetable Markets to hear of the orange seller turned actress/King's mistress Nell Gwynn.
Dip into the Theatreland's history to hear about a theatre critic that went on to be a flying success, meet the women of the 1800s who made their mark in West End history, and the debauchery ladies of the night who were selling everything to put food in their mouths.
As this tour ends in the flourishing Covent Garden area, you'll be spoilt for choice on where to go for a little refreshment. Cocktail suggestions are available upon request!
In order to safely conduct this tour for myself and my clients, I ask that all government recommended guidelines be complied with. I will be wearing a mask and would request that clients also comply to cover mouth and nose. I will use hand sanitiser before and after the tour, and recommend that clients bring their own sanitiser. Additionally, I recommend arriving a few minutes early to go to the restroom and wash your hands if you travel via the underground. Please wear a mask while on the underground. During the tour, we will maintain a safe distance of 1m apart. In the event that you are not well on the day, please do not attend the tour. If the guide is unwell, you will be informed the morning of the tour and full refunds will be administered. It is essential that we all look after each other and keep safe during this time. Phone number must be provided at time of booking for communication options related to your tour only.
