• LOCATION 25 | Theatreland Tour with Ian McKellen

    Right onto Tavistock Street

    This is where you turn right. When you’re round the corner, cross the street to make sure you’re walking on the left hand pavement.

    King Charles II's decision to let women on the stage was a huge step for British theatre. It was also how Charles met one of the loves of his life, none other than Nell Gwyn. And so Nell moved from fruit seller to leading actress and finally to royal mistress.

    Right, keep going. We’re turning left soon.
