Extraordinary Women: Walking Tour
Join Ingrid Wallenborg, a Blue Badge tourist guide, on a walk discovering extraordinary but often overlooked women. Hear about exceptional scientists, incredible life stories and the world of women artists whose professional activities, although restricted, still led to remarkable successes. We will focus on the area of St James’s, home to many clubs and societies, and once the centre of London’s art world. To quote one of our subjects: “if I were a man, I cannot imagine it would have turned out this way.”
