Women - get behind himSPECIAL WALK TO CELEBRATE INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY*

This walk has been cancelled due to ill health of guide.  Watch out for more dates coming soon.

Join a Blue Badge guide on a walk through central London to hear how women ‘did their bit’ during the First World War, taking on almost every job to keep the Home Front running.

Women emerged from their homes to work as nurses, munitionettes, police patrols, farm-hands and, in one extraordinary case, as a soldier on the front line.

This 2-hour walk from Temple Underground Station to Trafalgar Square takes in hidden memorials to the women, whose inspiring actions changed women’s lives forever.
