At the sound of Big Ben tolling the hour, your London walking tour begins. The scene is immediately set; whether you’re still in your armchair or on foot, you are about to set forth on one of the four tours herein: Adelphi and Covent Garden, The Inns of Court, St. James, or Chelsea. The tours include a stylish mix of literary trivia, history, modern watering holes, and the occasional shop worth listeners’ attention. Directions are clear, and guide Jean Marsh’s delivery is friendly, informed and charmingly British. The addition of comments from author Powell breaks up the narration to good effect. This programs are well worth your listening attention, if not your walking shoes. R.F.W. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/SEP 98]
