Baker Street Quarter Partnership Walks
Outside the Wallace Collection on the Architecture of the Quarter Walk
I've been delivering walking tours for the Baker Street Quarter Partnership since September 2013 and I'm delighted to be leading some of their free walks throughout 2018.
Most people associate Baker Street with Sherlock Holmes, the great fictional detective, however my walks for BSQP focus on exploring the less well known aspects of the area, such as its delightful parks and gardens, beautiful Georgian architecture and the fascinating people who have lived and worked in the quarter.
