Guided walk: 2.00pm to 3.30pm Saturday 22 June 2013.
Fitzrovia Neighbourhood Association, 39 Tottenham Street, London W1T 4RX.
Join a 90-minute guided walk to discover the buildings, and the famous and infamous people behind the walls. You may discover that things are not quite as they seem in this unusual neighbourhood.
Led by Fitzrovia News editor and local historian Mike Pentelow the walk will take you through Fitzrovia’s streets where the strange and unusual can be found. Murder, the last hangman, and more.
And we’ll tell you why Fitzrovia is not “shrugging off its shabby Bohemian image” unlike others would have you believe; how regeneration is threatening the life of the neighbourhood, and what, if anything, can be done to preserve the best of this inner city district.
This event is part of the Fitzrovia Festival 2013.
