From St Mary-le-Strand, church of the WRENS, to the Eleanor Cross at Charing Cross, the Strand holds many traces of women in all eras, from medieval queens to suffragettes. We celebrate the rich history of women’s suffrage in the area, also on view at the LSE Library, and figures in the history of the Strand: Romans, river gods, actresses, sea captains, educational pioneers and many more.
Please be on time! Walk begins at 4pm. Meet under the arches of Somerset House main entrance.
