About This Deal

Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Royal Academy of Arts, Burlington House Piccadilly Piccadilly, London W1J 0BD England

We start by visiting a picture of Lucifer patron saint of the idle and self indulgent. Some of the rich have used their wealth to improve the lives of their fellow human beings. None of these good people make any appearance on this tour! This tour is designed to enable you to hear stories of lust, greed and vanity from centuries past.

Duration: 10 minutes

Stop At: Burlington Arcade, 51 Piccadilly, London W1J 0QJ England

London's first shopping mall is very high end and sets the tone for the interactive walking experience that you have just started. Maybe think a little bit about if money is no object how might it effect your morals?

Duration: 10 minutes

Pass By: Sotheby's, 34-35 New Bond Street, London W1S 2RT England

One of the world's most exclusive auction houses has witnessed many a scandal over the years. The neighbourhood is where Nell Gwyn one of the most famous mistresses of the Merry Monarch Charles 11 lived. Nell had a particular talent for money grabbing in all matters to do with the King. Do you admire her ambition in a world which had few opportunities for women or do you dislike her morals?

Pass By: St. James's Palace, Marlborough Rd, St. James's, London SW1A 1BS England

Love games took place here between the Tudor King Henry V111 and his second wife Anne Boleyn five hundred years ago. Subsequent centuries were to be equally scandal filled!!!

Stop At: St. James's Park, Horse Guards Road The Storeyard, London SW1A 2BJ England

Charles 1 walked here to his execution on a cold January morning in 1649. Some people remember him as a Martyr Saint, but is it possible to be a Saint when you knowingly lie? Much else that has happened in this Park over the centuries is far from Saintly!!!

Duration: 10 minutes

Stop At: Old Queen Street, Old Queen St, London SW1, UK

The Old Queen is Anne from three hundred years ago most recently brought back to life in the film `The Favourite` which depicted her as part of a bitter lesbian love triangle. Are we just discussing gossip History for a bit of fun or is there something to learn about human nature here?

Duration: 10 minutes
