HISTORIC ST GILES

FROM APPLES AND ACTORS TO FOOTPADS AND FREEMASONS - Historic St Giles and Seven Dials.

A morning tour with Diane Burstein an afternoon tour by staff of the Freemasons Museum.

Thursday 5 October 2017

 

In the morning London Blue Badge Guide Diane Burstein will introduce you to some intriguing courtyards and byways of this historic area with a once notorious reputation. While some past inhabitants earned an honest living as costermongers at nearby Covent Garden market others survived by prostitution and petty crime in a district which became known as the 'St Giles rookery', a byword for crime and notoriety. All this activity happened in the heart of London's Theatreland so we'll be hearing some theatrical history too.
