District Line

Victoria to Embankment, featuring boozy politicians and secret glimpses of Tube trains

Big Ben

This walk takes us along a stretch of the Tube's second-oldest line.

Starting at Victoria, we'll encounter a statue of the woman after whom the pavlova was named (and find out why she herself refused to look at it) ... discover a tower that gives you one of the best views of London ... hear whose is the only tomb you're not allowed to walk over in Westminster Abbey ... and learn who is the only person allowed to drink alcohol in the House of Commons chamber.

I'll also show you a place from where you can see the District Line trains passing below - it's so secret that even confirmed Tube nerds don't know about it ...

There's no need to pre-book - just turn up. Meet in Lower Grosvenor Gardens, by the statue of Marshal Foch. The gardens are opposite Victoria station on Buckingham Palace Road (directly opposite The Shakespeare pub). Click on the link at bottom right for a map.

Eiffel Tower

The Eiffel Tower grows by 7 inches in summer. Again, a lovely way of bringing to life what could be a very dull statement in a physics lesson. (In this case - metals expand when they are heated.)
