Come and join fellow-member and Westminster guide, Anthony Davis, for a literary walking tour around an area with dramatic contrasts.

See two of London's most beautiful early 18th-century squares and the site of one of London's worst slums, memorably described by Charles Dickens; peer through the windows (literally) of JS Mill and TE Lawrence; pass where John Milton lived; look Queen Anne in the eye and hear about the effects of social housing and Nazi bombs.

This walk begins at St James's Park tube station at the exit for Park and Broadway, opposite the Old Star pub. It lasts about 1.5 hours and finishes near Westminster Cathedral.
