Covent Garden off the Beaten Track
A walk exploring the lesser known streets and alleyways of Covent Garden from the site of a burial ground and workhouse to the site of a leper hospital and rookery.
We will also go on a search for Mercers’ Maidens, hear about pubs allegedly linked by their cellars and spot ghost signs recalling a long forgotten trade the area was once famous for.
The walk starts outside the Amba Hotel (formerly known as the Charing Cross Hotel) which is on the forecourt next to the main entrance of Charing Cross Station. The walk finishes at St Giles-in-the-Fields Church just a few minutes’ walk from Tottenham Court Road tube. The walk is approximately 90 minutes. This walk can be combined with a pub or coffee stop on the way and finishes near an historic pub too.
