This spring Westminster Libraries are hosting, as part of a health initiative, a series of walks around Westminster.

On 16 April 2012 Judy Stephenson, a City of Westminster guide, will lead a walk through Soho to Covent Garden and discover the area’s colourful but chequered past.

Lewdly Louche — a languorous lope of libido and illegitimacy; libertines and licentiousness.

Meet outside Charing Cross Library, 4 Charing Cross Road, London WC2H 0HF at 1.30pm, 16 April 2012. Price £5.00. Concessions £4.00.

More events at Charing Cross Library.
