Charity Christmas Lights Walk

Charity Christmas Lights Walk

This event has finished Took place on: Saturday, 9th Dec 2017

A walk taking in the best of the West End's Christmas lights in order to raise funds or the Taxi Charity for Military Veterans.

The walk starts with the cosy glow of a fire in a Marylebone pub*, then meanders through the back streets of the West End, through Mayfair and into Soho. The walk includes hidden passages, superbly decorated posh shops and lots of historical snippets along the way. The theme of Christmas continues throughout and there will be a mince pie or two to help us on our way.

We finish in Carnaby Street close to tubes and near to a good pub* for a warming drink.

*If you're bringing children and want to avoid the pubs there is a cafe opposite the pub at the start of the walk and plenty of alternatives at the end.

Please donate a minimum of £8 per person.

Cost: £8
