Guided Tour of Fitzrovia




Please join us for a guided tour of Fitzrovia with local author and historian Mike Pentelow. 

The guided walk promises to be a fascinating journey through the streets of Fitzrovia, taking in the lively characters and history of the area from Karl Marx to the Sex Pistols!

The tour, lasting approximately 45 minutes, will start at the mural at 7pm and finish with a pint in one of Fitzrovia's historic pubs.

The tour will cost £10 and all proceeds will go towards the restoration project.

Hope you can make it!

Raise awareness of Fitzrovia's heritage and restore the mural at Whitfield Gardens

The Fitzrovia Mural was painted in 1980

There will be a public meeting to canvas support for a project to raise awareness of Fitzrovia's heritage and restore the mural at Whitfield Gardens, on the corner of Tottenham Court Road and Tottenham Street.

7:30pm, Tuesday 21st September at the Fitzrovia Neighbourhood Centre, 39 Tottenham Street, London W1T 4RX

The project is being promoted by the Fitzrovia Neighbourhood Association with the help of the London Mural Preservation Society.

The meeting is open to anyone who has an interest in Fitzrovia's heritage and conservation and who would like to see the mural restored.

The mural restoration will be part of wider plans to promote awareness of heritage and conservation in an area of London under threat from commercial development.
