August 11, 2019 –
If you are coming to London’s Oxford Street for shopping, why not join Stephen to hear fascinating stories about some of the West End’s major stores and the characters behind them.
If you are a fan of the Mr Selfridge series you might be surprised to hear just how much of it was fiction but things you thought might be made up are actually true. And there are some incredible stories which did not make it into the TV series, such as the bet between Harry Gordon Selfridge and Harrods in 1917 and what the loser had to do.

Who Runs These Walks and Talks?
Events marked Association walks or talks are organised and coordinated by the City of Westminster Guide Lecturers’ Association, and are often arranged in partnership with other organisations.
Events marked Members’ walks or talks are organised by an individual member or by a group of Westminster Guides, for their personal interest, whether as a business or for a charity. Please note that the member is responsible for all aspects of the walk, and that the Association simply allows members to list their walks on the site. Any issues, queries or concerns about any of the Members’ Walks listed must therefore be addressed directly to the responsible guide.
