Explore the 18th century's 'Square of Venus'

In our final tour we delve into 18th century Covent Garden. Designed as genteel residences, this area gradually descended into debauchery and vice. We’re on the hunt for the visual remnants of the city’s Gin Craze and ‘Square of Venus’.

London’s first public square was the epicentre for dizzy highs as well as tragic lows. On this tour you’ll meet the larger-than-life figures who left their mark on London.

The virtual tour will be hosted via Zoom and once you book you will be sent the meeting link to join.

This is the first walk in a series of online virtual tours from Look Up London. If you're interested in attending more than one tour you can unlock exclusive discounts and benefits by purchasing full membership here.

Reviews from previous virtual tours

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ “Excellent virtual walk with Katie who is very knowledgable and an entertaining fun guide. Even though very familiar with the area of the tour I still learned somethings. And at a time when we are all largely confined to home is was a welcome and much needed touch of normality.” – Ray M

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ “Fascinating and informed… a real delight in these London- deprived times, stuck here in isolation in beautiful ultra rural Shropshire” – Steve R

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ “Have now done a couple of these virtual tours and have loved them. Will certainly fine time for more. A great way to learn more about London.” – Susan S

Cost: £10
