Bookshop Stanfords is marking the publication of The English Heritage Guide to London’s Blue Plaques with a pair of special events.
At noon on 25 and 27 October, tour guides will show you around the blue plaques of two distinctive areas of central London.
The Covent Garden tour, on 25 October, explores the haunts of Covent Garden's past occupants, including revolutionaries, artists, master craftsmen and Victorian opium fiends.
The Bloomsbury tour, on 27 October, uncovers the buildings where great thinkers and inspirational pioneers lived and worked in the heart of Bloomsbury.
Both walking tours start from outside Standfords at noon and last for about an hour. Tickets, costing £10 for adults (£8 for 5-15 year olds), need to be booked in advance.
The London blue plaques scheme is thought to be the oldest of its kind in the world; run by English Heritage, it's celebrating its 150th anniversary this year.
Across the capital there are more than 900 plaques honouring notable men and women who have lived or worked in them. For more, visit the blue plaques website.
