Theatreland Tour with Ian McKellen
Left into Bedfordbury Street
Turn left here to the famously vile Bedfordbury Street. And when you get to the corner, make sure to stop and take a deep breath.
[inhales] Ah it’s not so bad after all, hardly the"wretched little haunt" that Sala described.
Still, let’s get off it quickly, just in case.
Across the street is a little black storefront. It’s one down from the corner, below smoke-blackened brickwork.
Next to it is my favourite secret entrance to an alleyway. It’s a little tricky to find but well worth the trouble. It’s called Goodwins Court and I want you to head down there.
