Enjoy a late afternoon guided walk exploring a location that has a different history! From a famous restaurant where even Gandi staged a protest and the Muslims in the early 1900s were using the table cloths as prayer mats! Who was Shaykh Abdullah Quilliam? and where did he live and keep his goat? Would you believe it there was a Mosque in 1898 but where and who opened it? Who was the Khan of Gordon Square?

Discover this and much more on this afternoon.

Following the tour optional dinner will take place at Drummond Street. Those wishing to offer their prayers after the tour may do so at the nearest Mosque, Shah Jalan Mosque 204A North Gower Street, London NW1 2LY or the prayer room at UCL hospital, Euston Road.Meet outside Goodge Street underground station

On this walk we will wander around the area first referred to as ‘Fitzrovia’ in the 1930s. ‘Meet’ and hear stories about some of the famous (and not-so-famous) Fitzrovia residents, many of whom were regulars in its pubs during the 1940s. Find out about ‘pennies from heaven’ and uncover who helped the home front war effort and who turned it to their advantage!

We’ll also take a look at Fitzrovia’s wartime buildings, including a deep level shelter used by a US General and a building that was destroyed by one of the last V-2 rockets to fall on London

Meet outside Goodge Street underground station
