Joolz Guides: London Self Guided Walking Tour – Fitzrovia & Charlotte Street

22/10/2021

Another of these fun, quirky videos

One of the many reasons I like these videos is that he visits so many places I used to know years ago. It is incredibly nostalgic and fun.

A London self guided walking tour is a great, cheap way to see interesting places off the beaten path, like Fitzrovia and Charlotte Street.

This neighbourhood is full of great history and has also become a cool place to go out drinking or eating in the evening. It’s pretty close to Oxford street but has its own young crowd.

On this walk Joolz Guides takes you down Goodge Street, Tottenham Court Road, Charlotte Street, Rathbone Place and Berners Street.

You’ll learn about the Berners Street Hoax, Gustavus Vassa (Olaudah Equiano) who survived a slave ship and lived in this area after writing a book of his experiences.

There is Pollock’s Toy Museum, street food Hanway street and its hidden away bars and clubs like Sevilla Mia.

Also learn about the Fitzrovia Bohemians, George Orwell, Dylan Thomas and the pubs they drank in.

There is also lots more in this excellent guided walking tour finishing with a drink at the Nordic Bar.
