#London Walk of the Week: What Ho Jeeves! The London of P.G Wodehouse #PGWodehouse


Every Sunday we’ll pluck just one walk from the vast London Walks repertoire and put it centre stage.





You can check out the full schedule at www.walks.com.





But if you only take one walking tour this week, why not make it…



WHAT HO, JEEVES! – The London of P.G. Wodehouse

2:30pm Saturday 28th February 2016

To go on the "What Ho, Jeeves!" The London of P.G. Wodehouse walk meet Richard IV just outside the Park Lane exit of Marble Arch Tube.

Mayfair between the wars. The land of Galahad Threepwood, Bingo Little and Catsmeat Potter-Pirbright. The house where Wodehouse lived for much of the 1930s. The real locations behind the Drones Club. Grosvenor Square and the girl who yearned for it. The famous actor who was an inspiration behind Bertie Wooster, the place where Bertie bought the Old Etonian spats which outraged Jeeves, and the bookshop where he, most unfortunately, ended up with a copy of Spindrift. The home of a close Wodehouse friend and colleague. The little tea shop near the Ritz where romance blossomed. The club where an impecunious peer worked as secretary. P G Wodehouse, genius of comic writing, was backwards and forwards between London and New York throughout the 20s and 30s, and the fictional world he created around his real London never grew old. Over 90 years on since the immortal Jeeves first shimmered into view, the traces of the Master’s favourite corner of London can still be found…
