Part of our insightful Spotlight series, each led by a local guide who has experienced some form of homelessness in different areas of the capital, this one concentrates on Covent Garden. Delving into alleys and backstreets beyond the district’s glamourous facade, you’ll discover the oldest restaurant in London, tales of spooky ghosts, secrets of the Knight’s Templar while, most importantly, also receiving a unique insight into the realities and hardships of one of the capital’s biggest social problems.
