` Fantastic experience. Learnt so much about what is hiding in plain sight! ' Mark, Discover Hidden Sites Guest I will take you on an interactive walk through beautiful hidden gardens very near the usual tourist sites but rarely visited by most tourists. Firstly we will hear about the sensational story of 19-year-old Katherine Howard, Henry VIII's fifth wife who was executed for adultery. Discover scandals and court plots that make Game of Thrones seem dull! * Secondly, we will learn about Jonathan Tyers `The Maker of Dreams ' and owner of the Vegas and Disney of the 18th century. Discover how Jonathan became wealthy and inspired generations of wealth creators! * Thirdly, we'll see the home of the suffragist Millicent Fawcett, whose house entertained 19th century feminists, bohemians, and radicals. Discover how Millicent changed the world! Finally we will look at how the stories of Katherine, Jonathan and Millicent are all about your values and how you choose to interpret their time on earth!

We will start out in Victoria Tower Gardens next to Parliament and then cross over Lambeth Bridge to Lambeth Palace. We will go through Vauxhall Pleasure Gardens and Bonnington Square and will finish in Fentiman Park. This park is a very short walk from Vauxhall train, bus and tube station.
最多可有10位年满16周岁的参与者参加。 It is important that guests are fluent in English to get best value from this walk. It is fine to bring pets along and is on a flat surface most of the time so should be fine for wheelchair users and those with limited mobility.
This is a gentle walk that will take place in all types of weather. The last stop is Fentiman Park, which is minutes away from the Vauxhall underground, bus, and railway stations.
