The walk starts at 2.30 at Green Park Tube Station, the Green Park exit, by the fountain. If it is more convenient for you, please meet us there. The walk ends at St James Palace, a few minutes’ walk from Green park tube station.  It is based on old vintage London.  There are secret passages that take you into the 16th and 18th centuries.  It is full of character and marinated in history.
