This Blue Badge World War One walking tour commemorates the last time the Suffragettes took to the streets in formal protest, in May 1914, just two and a half months before the outbreak of the Great War. Meet 2.00 outside the barriers at Westminster tube. Our walk crosses one of London’s four World Heritage sites – Parliament Square – visits the Stone Gate surviving from the 1677 ‘Westminster Bridewell’ prison,  passes Caxton Hall – site of the regular Womens’ Parliaments – and ends in front of the railings at Buckingham Palace, where Mrs Pankhurst was spectacularly arrested and bundled back to Holloway Prison by burly Chief Inspector Rolfe. Come and celebrate the centenary of one of the most famous news photographs of the early twentieth century.
