Waterloo Place - Nazi Dogs, Playboys & Naughty Royals
Operates on selected weekdays at 1pm.
Tour starts underneath the 4th plinth in Trafalgar Square (next to the toilets)
On this incredible journey into London’s past we will explore an area of London known for its great wealth, glamour and honour.
But behind every imposing memorial is a more sordid tale, and on this tour we will be delving into the darkest secrets and discarded narrative of London’s history.
Did you know that there is a disused viewing platform minutes from Trafalgar Square? Or that there is a mounting block once used by the Duke of Wellington? Or a gravestone for a dog unfairly labelled a ‘nazi dog’?
We will go searching for evidence of these forgotten bits of London’s history as well as checking out the more grand statues, private members clubs and war memorials along the way.
