Misfits of Covent Garden

Rebel Tours

Available to 31 October 2023

Special Pride Edition running until June 30th

There is so much more to Covent Gardens than posh shopping boutiques and fancy restaurants. Would you believe it was home to one of the craziest and most colourful characters in London's history?

Only running for the month of June, this special Pride edition will let you explore some of the fascinating queer history of the area, exploring identity and sexuality through its amazing characters.

You'll get to meet royalty, literary genius, dive into London's first gay subculture all they way to the Gay Liberation Front in the 1970s!

  • The Pride Edition of this tour will run only in June excluding the 1st, 11th, 12th, 17th, 20th and 26th. If you book on these dates or any after June 30, you will be booking onto the regular version of this tour.

  • This tour lasts approximately 2 hours and finishes in the Seven Dials
