Free Tour Amazing Women in London

Have you ever walked through London and wondered ‘where are the statues of women?’, or have you ever walked around London and counted the statues of women then tried to do the same with the statues of men? If you did, what differences did you notice? We at Wonders of London have walked through the streets of London with a thought always residing in the backs of our minds. This thought is ‘surely women have contributed to history just as much as men, but where are their statues?’.

Join us on this amazing free walking tour through the London boroughs of Lambeth and Westminster and discover the statues, memorials and stories of some of the amazing history changing and history making women of London. On this tour we will discover the story of the woman who burnt the City of London down, the story of the queen who saved The Burghers of Calais, amazing nurses and heroic spies from World War II. When we say women we mean real women as opposed to mythological representations of women or statues that embody the ideals that are often associated with women and the statues include but are not limited to Mary Seacole, Florence Nightingale, Emmeline Pankhurst among others.

This free tour is recommended to all ages although topics include war, disease, death, murder, suicide and the wrongful treatment of women in history.
