In this walk, I will take you back in time to the year of the Great Exhibition of 1851, where I will recount the story of this monumental event, re-enacting a day in the life of Victorian Londoners. We will stroll along the site of the Crystal Palace in Hyde Park - bringing it back to life, talking about the exhibits and the technological and artistic marvels of the time.

Then we'll make our way towards Buckingham Palace - talking about the politics, class, social mores and urbanism of Victorian times. We will mentally draw an imaginary picture of London as the much different city it was, at the center of a much different world, and to do so, we will attempt to strip our surroundings from the sensory stimuli of modern times - some more obvious, and some others less !

We will then enter the famous Wellington Arch, and enjoy a unique view of London from its viewing platform !

Afterwards, we'll be making our way toward London's famous Clubland along Pall Mall, where we'll talk about the the Gentlemen's Clubs, a uniquely British institution shrouded in relative mystery to this day - and we will catch a glimpse of their opulence and magnificence while relating their fascinating history.

Expect a casual, no-rush stroll, with plenty of history & interesting facts, stories and anecdotes to go with it !

Каде ќе бидете

Even seasoned Londoners aren't always aware of the original location of the now long defunct Crystal Palace, the unassuming location of particular Gentlemen's Clubs, or the surviving examples of Victorian ingenuity we will encounter. I will relate their history and anecdotes while we enjoy a casual stroll through Hyde Park, the Rose Garden and Wellington Arch, before walking down Constitution Hill towards Buckingham Palace and Pall Mall

Fantastic tour! I really enjoyed learning about the subject as well as how it was delivered. Evan is great and I hope to take his other tour when I return to London. Definitely recommended!

It was a really engaging conversational experience we had regarding the Victoria period of Britain. We started from a beautiful meeting point with fantastic views and statues which itself can take days to explain. Along the walk Evan chose a great angel - The Great Exhibition to tell stories of who came, how it was and what was exhibited. During the walk, it was not only beautiful for the whole walk but I truly enjoyed the conversation with Evan and other guests throughout!

I loved the promenade alongside Victorian buildings and walking through the parks. Evan is an enthusiastic and well prepared guide but also open to involve current events. Totally recommend it if you’re interested in history and personal guidance instead of a mainstream sightseeing tour.
