We are pleased to announce that Soho Estates and Shaftesbury's St Martin's Courtyard and Gerrard Street have been added to the West End Tour programme. However, because of Soho's narrow streets we will be walking through Soho as the bus doesn’t fit (thus the active travel title).
Our guides will include Robert Evans, CEO of King's Cross; Oliver Smith, Head of St James’ at the Crown Estate; Deirdra Armsby, Director of Place Shaping and Town Planning, City of Westminster; Michelle McGrath, CapCo’s director of Covent Garden; Gary Yardley, Chief Investment Officer and Managing Director, CapCo; Ros Morgan, Chief Executive, Heart of London Business Alliance; Jonathan Rose, Portfolio Manager at LandSecurities; John James, Managing Director Soho Estate; James Pellatt, director of Workplace and Innovation at GPE; Richard Baldwin, Head of Development at Derwent London; and Keith Bailey, Director Mayfair at Grosvenor.
Sir Peter Hendy, Chairman of Network Rail and former Commissioner for Transport for London, will be driving his own restored Routemaster bus.
The ride starts in Victoria and will conclude with a drink’s reception in Soho.
