Free Tour Amazing Women in London

Have you ever walked through London and wondered ‘where are the statues of women?’, or have you ever walked around London and counted the statues of women then tried to do the same with the statues of men? If you did, what differences did you notice? We at Wonders of London have walked through the streets of London with a thought always residing in the backs of our minds. This thought is ‘surely women have contributed to history just as much as men, but where are their statues?’.

Join us on this amazing free walking tour through the London boroughs of Lambeth and Westminster and discover the statues , memorials and stories of some of the amazing history changing and history making women of London . On this tour we will discover the story of the woman who burnt the City of London down, the story of the queen who saved The Burghers of Calais, amazing nurses and heroic spies from World War II. When we say women we mean real women as opposed to mythological representations of women or statues that embody the ideals that are often associated with women and the statues include but are not limited to Mary Seacole , Florence Nightingale , Emmeline Pankhurst among others.

This free tour is recommended to all ages although topics include war, disease, death, murder, suicide and the wrongful treatment of women in history.

Working Women of the East End Walking Tour

Working Women of the East End Walking Tour WWP

Guided * 2.5 Hours * Outdoors

This walking guided tour focused around the neighborhood of East End in London. The neighborhood emerged in the Middle Ages and was known as the “Part beyond the Tower” (Tower of London). It used to be an overcrowded neighborhood with poverty and social problems, and many social activists and reformers grew up there.

While wandering around, visiting historical monuments, you will hear about the suffragettes who fought for equal voting right for the English women, the victims of Jack the Ripper, the women who worked around the Brick Lane area, and many more.

Meet the ‘Women of Westminster’ on our London walking tour

To celebrate the launch of our women’s history london map , author and expert tour guide katie wignall has curated and written a walking tour of london’s westminster, highlighting some of the fascinating women whom you can meet through statues, plaques and sculptures. illustrated with photographs by jo underhill, katie’s map is your ideal guide for exploring women’s history in london. .

As a seat of politics in the United Kingdom, Westminster is a historically important area of London. Yet it’s only relatively recently that women have started to play a leading role within this realm and let’s face it, there’s still more work to be done. The statues of women marked below for this walking tour not only show the importance of women to British political history, but their gradual growth in visibility to the public in this significant part of the city.

The walk starts at the statue of Boudicca and her daughters, a short walk from Westminster Tube Station. Opposite the Houses of Parliament, our national seat of power, stands a statue of a woman, both arms aloft with her right hand clasped around a spear. Crouching beside her are her two daughters clutching the sides of a chariot, pulled by horses that are hurtling towards you. This is Boudicca, married to the ruler of the Iceni tribe in Britain during the 1st century AD. When her husband died the Romans who had invaded Britain assumed they would take control of the tribe but Boudicca had other ideas. Affronted by this apparent coup, the Romans flogged Boudicca and ‘violated’ her daughters. The upper echelons of Iceni men were also stripped of their estates. Incensed by their mistreatment, Boudicca led a revolt against the Romans, first destroying Colchester, then St Albans and finally London. The Roman historian Cassius Dio explains that “80,000 of the Romans and of their allies perished, and the island was lost to Rome. Moreover, all this ruin was brought upon the Romans by a woman, a fact which in itself caused them the greatest shame.” In the end the Romans regrouped and Boudicca’s win was short-lived. She committed suicide by poison and (though there are many rumours) it’s not known where she died and was buried. This dynamic bronze statue was commissioned in the 1850s by Prince Albert and designed by Thomas Thornycroft. It was unveiled here in 1902.

Boudicca statue

Millicent Garrett Fawcett

Walk past the Elizabeth Tower and cross into Parliament Square. Parliament Square has a number of statues of British and international statesmen but it was only in 2018 when a statue of a woman appeared. This is Millicent Garrett Fawcett, sculpted by Gillian Wearing and unveiled in 2018 to commemorate 100 years since some women gained the vote in 1918. Fawcett is most famous as a suffragist who believed in a non-violent campaign for the vote for women. She spent almost all her life as an activist driven to improve the lives of women, writing her first published article on the importance of educating women aged 20. She lived to see the 1928 Representation of the People Act which gave the vote to women on the same basis as men. One of the best aspects of this statue is the fact that it is not just Fawcett celebrated here. She is literally supported by the work and courage of 59 women and four men who are commemorated in photographs around the base.

Women of World War II

The Women of WWII statue Whitehall

Edith Cavell

Continue up Whitehall to enter Trafalgar Square. The grand building that dominates the space is the National Gallery, our national collection of some of the finest paintings in the world. Though women are shockingly underrepresented (there are only 21 paintings by women in the collection) it is worth visiting to see works by Rachel Ruysch (1664–1750), Artemisia Gentileschi (1593 – c.1652) and Élisabeth Vigée Le Brun (1755 – 1842). On Charing Cross Road, pause alongside the entrance to the National Portrait Gallery to admire the statue of Edith Cavell. Born in 1865, Cavell received a good education and then worked for a governess for a Belgian family between 1890 – 1895. When her father was severely ill she returned home to care for him and the experience drove her to train as a nurse once he recovered. From 1896 she worked under the formidable Eva Luckes at the London Hospital who revolutionised the training for nurses making it more rigorous and professional. Highly skilled and experienced, Edith had various positions in St Pancras and Shoreditch before moving back to Brussels from 1907. At the beginning of the First World War and despite German occupation she continued to work, helping British soldiers out of Belgium and into the Netherlands. In August 1915 she was arrested and held in prison for ten weeks, the last two in solitary confinement. She would eventually admit to helping 60 British and 15 French soldiers (as well as approximately 100 civilians) to escape. She was executed by firing square on 12 October 1915, despite worldwide condemnation. This statue was designed by Sir George Frampton and erected only a few years after her death in 1920.

Agatha Christie

Walk up to the top of St Martin’s Lane for our final stop. This is a complicated junction of six streets, but on the corner of Cranbourn Street and Great Newport Street you can find the memorial sculpture of Agatha Christie. Christie was born in 1890 into a wealthy family in Devon. Her big break in writing came in 1920 when the Hercule Poirot story, The Mysterious Affair at Styles was published. She would go on to write 66 detective novels and 14 short story collections, becoming arguably the best-selling novelist of all time. Fittingly, the statue designed by Ben Twiston-Davies, is shaped like a book with a bust of Christie in the centre. It also features details of Christie’s much-loved titles so it’s fun to try and pick out her characters and symbols from some of her best-loved stories. My favourite detail is the mousetrap at the very top, a nice link to the nearby St Martin’s theatre where you can see  The Mousetrap – the world’s longest running play – which opened in the West End in 1952.

Women's History London Map

Women’s History London Map Explore London through the lens of women’s history.

With an introduction and descriptions by Katie Wignall, author, city history tour guide and Londoner, and photography by Jo Underhill, the map guide is a companion to begin exploring the lives of some of London’s most impactful women, and to inspire the next generation to continue their work.

And Traveling the World

Lady’s Bloomsbury Walk and Map

Today I want to share A Lady in London’s free self-guided Bloomsbury walk and map with you. This part of central London is packed with everything from literary highlights to leafy squares and famous museums. Everyone from Virginia Woolf to Charles Dickens has called this London neighborhood home, and it’s a great place to explore. My walking route will help you discover the best of Bloomsbury on foot. I hope you enjoy the journey.

Bloomsbury Walk

Bloomsbury Walk

From Russell Square to the British Museum, Bedford Square to Lamb’s Conduit Street, Bloomsbury is one of the most famous central London neighborhoods .

Set in a beautiful part of the UK capital, my Bloomsbury walk is the perfect way to get into London’s literary past, explore pretty streets, eat and drink at independent cafes and restaurants, and indulge your inner culture lover.

You can see more walks in the book London’s Hidden Walks , too. It’s for you if you enjoy discovering the UK capital’s off-the-beaten-path areas. You can get it here .

I’ve also written a whole post about London walks books , so you can take a look at it if you want more options.

Bedford Square, London

Bloomsbury Walk Route

My self-guided Bloomsbury walking tour starts at Russell Square station. It’s centrally located and has great transport links, so you can arrive by tube, bus, bike, or on foot from other parts of the city.

Russell Square Station, London

When you exit the Underground station, take a left on Bernard Street, then another quick left on Herbrand Street. It will take you past a historic pub in atmospheric surroundings. When you reach Guildford Street, turn right to get to Russell Square.

Pub in Bloomsbury, London

When you get there, take a right to walk up to the intersection at the northeast corner of the square. As you go, you’ll start to get a glimpse of the Georgian townhouses and pretty green space the area is known for.

Bloomsbury Hotel

Cross the street to enter Russell Square, then walk diagonally through it to get to the southwest corner. Once there, take a right on Russell Square and a quick left on Montague Place.

Walk down Montague Place, passing by the back of the British Museum and the south side of Malet Street Gardens as you make your way to Bedford Square.

British Museum, Bloomsbury, London

When you arrive at Bedford Square, walk around it and take in the stunning Georgian buildings and doors as you go. This is one of my favorite places to take in Bloomsbury’s heritage architecture.

Bedford Square, Bloomsbury, London

Once you’ve explored the square, exit by taking a right on Bloomsbury Street and then a left on Great Russell Street. This will bring you past the front of the British Museum.

You can go inside and have a look around if you want to, or continue your Bloomsbury walk by turning right on Bury Place.

British Museum in London

There are lots of shops on Bury Place, including the London Review Bookshop (you might remember it from my London literary walk or my itinerary for London for book lovers ).

You can pop in for a browse or have a treat at the adjacent cake shop (yum…cake and books).

London Review Bookshop

From Bury Place, take a left on Bloomsbury Way and walk down to Bloomsbury Square. Dating back to 1665, this is London’s oldest square. Stroll around it and keep an eye out for the historic details on the buildings as you go.

From the square, continue your Bloomsbury walk by exiting from the northeast corner via Bloomsbury Place. When you get to the end, take a left on Southampton Row and follow it until you reach Cosmo Place.

Turn right to walk down Cosmo Place. This pedestrianized street will take you to Queen Square. The public garden in the middle is a good place to rest your feet if you need a break.

Cat Sculpture in Bloomsbury

There are statues and sculptures all around, including one of a cat. There’s also an 18th-century pub on the corner of Cosmo Place that has historic connections to King George III and his wife, Queen Caroline.

Bloomsbury Pub, London

Once you’ve walked around the garden, exit from the northeast corner via Queen Anne’s Walk. When you reach the end, turn right on Guildford Street and continue your Bloomsbury walk until you get to Guildford Place.

Turn right on Guildford Place and follow it as it becomes Lamb’s Conduit Street. There are lots of great restaurants, shops, and cafes here, so it’s worth spending some time exploring.

Lambs Conduit Street, Bloomsbury, London

When you reach Theobald’s Road, turn left and walk east until you get to John Street. Take a left on John Street, passing historic facades and corner pubs as you make your way north and the road becomes Doughty Street.

Bloomsbury Pub

When it does, you’ll pass the Charles Dickens Museum. You can pop in to see his former home if you want to.

If not, continue your Bloomsbury walk by following Doughty Street north as it becomes Mecklenburgh Square, then Mecklenburgh Street. When it ends at Heathcote Street, turn left and follow the street to the end.

On your right you’ll see a gate that leads into St. George’s Gardens. This secret garden is set in a former 18th-century graveyard. It’s a great place to rest your legs in peaceful surroundings.

St George's Gardens, Bloomsbury

Once rested, exit St. George’s Gardens at the northwest corner and walk west down Handel Street until you reach the Marchmont Community Garden, a pretty little urban green space.

Marchmont Community Garden, London

Walk through the garden to get to Marchmont Street, where you’ll turn right to take in more of Bloomsbury’s restaurants and cafes.

When you’re done, continue your Bloomsbury walk by turning left on Tavistock Place. It will lead you to Tavistock Square Gardens.

This green space features statues of everyone from Mahatma Ghandi to Virginia Woolf. The latter was a member of the Bloomsbury Group and lived at 52 Tavistock Square between 1924 and 1939.

Bust of Virginia Woolf, Tavistock Square, Bloomsbury

The square is also lined with important buildings, including the headquarters of the British Medical Association. It was designed by prominent English architect Edwin Lutyens in 1911.

When you’re done exploring, exit Tavistock Square at the southwest corner and follow the street called Gordon Square until you reach Gordon Square and Woburn Square. They’re right across from one another.

You can walk through and around them if you want to, or continue your Bloomsbury walk on Byng Place. Don’t miss the many university buildings and the row of red phone boxes by Euston Church as you go.

Red Phone Boxes, Bloomsbury, London

After Byng Place becomes Torrington Place, turn left on Gower Street and follow the colorful doors and brick buildings down to Store Street.

Turn right on Store Street, where you’ll find lots of restaurants, shops, and cafes (including one of the best coffee shops in London ).

Bloomsbury Cafe in London

When Store Street meets Tottenham Court Road, turn right and walk up to the Goodge Street tube station. Your self-guided Bloomsbury walking tour ends here.

It looks so nice! I absolutely loved the bicycle :)))

Absolutely love the description of your walks….feel I am there with you….but I will certainly get out there and do myself.

Thank you so much! I’m glad you feel you’re on the walks with me. I hope you enjoy this one when you do it.

Just done this lovely walk, stopping and start along the way. Breakfast in Russell Square garden, Browsed in London Review bookstore, lunch in Landry Oteline. All really lovely. A busy wedding weekend ahead and this was a perfect quieter way to spend today, wandering around this lovely area of London. Thanks.

You’re welcome! I’m so glad you enjoyed it.

I just did this walk today, as I am staying in this area for work this week. Such a nice stroll – thank you!
