The #LondonWalks Walk of the Week: Mrs Dalloway's #London


-->
Every Sunday we’ll pluck just one walk from the vast London Walks
repertoire and put it centre stage.





You can check out the full schedule at www.walks.com.





But if you only take one walking tour this week, why not make it…







Mrs. Dalloway's London

Sunday 25th June 2017

2.30pm

St. James's Park Tube, Westminster Abbey/Broadway exit

Guided by Stephen

Virginia Woolf's novel Mrs. Dalloway is a tour de force. Literary modernism reaches its peak of perfection in that book – on that walk through London on that June day in 1923. We walk with Mrs. Dalloway. Walk her London. See it with her eyes. The walk is guided – and performed – by Steve N., a Royal Shakespeare Company actor. That's important because Mrs. Dalloway is essentially a prose poem – arguably the most beautifully written novel of the last 100 years. In situ Steve will read the relevant passages to us. The words, the delivery, the setting – everything comes together. Special walk, special couple of hours. More than special – unforgettable.

About Your Guide…


Stephen

Fiercely intelligent, terrifyingly talented, distinguished actor. Royal Shakespeare Company, West End shows, lots of films, Sir Peter Hall's Shakespeare productions, etc. Best ear ever. His impersonation of John Lennon is a resurrection. Doesn't just guide Shakespeare, performs him.



A London Walk costs £10 – £8 concession. To join a London Walk, simply meet your guide at the designated tube station at the appointed time. Details of all London Walks can be found at www.walks.com.
