A Foodie Themed Christmas Lights walk
The walk starts with the cosy glow of a fire in a Sam Smiths’ 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. As with most of my walks there is a food/drink theme plus Christmas traditions and decorations throughout!
The walk finishes in Carnaby Street where there are plenty of places for refreshment. The walk can be altered to finish anywhere in the vicinity if you want to conclude the walk with a meal.
Reviews from my previous Christmas walks:
Melanie A (December 2018) “I did the Xmas light foodie inspired walk with Joanna Saturday evening. It was magic, fun and informative. Strongly to recommend! Thanks Joanna.”
CDub131 (December 2017)“Joining Joanna on this walking tour around London was a highlight of our Christmas! Dodging through little alley ways into hidden courtyards alight with the prettiest of displays we never would have found, Joanna’s relaxed, humorous and informative style all added to our experience. Thank you so much Joanna….looking forward to our next walk with you!”
Catherine C (December 2017)“What a great walk, loads of history, places you would never find without a guide. Jo is a great, knowledgable guide, it’s just a fun thing to do. Great way to find pubs, shops, streets that would would not even know where there.”
Margot W (December 2016) “Enjoyed tour, which included some lesser known areas. The guide was well prepared and knowledgeable.”
ljc01 (December 2016) This year was the 2nd year I’ve done this tour & loved it. …”
Contact me for availability and cost for a private walk. All walks can be adapted to start and finish at a venue of choice in the immediate area. The walk is around 1 hour, 50 minutes’ long.
Every year I do a number of public walks on weekday and weekend evenings.
Dates of my upcoming walks always appear first on Eventbrite and on my Westminster Walks page on Facebook.
