The Fearsome Cholera of 1854

Step back in time to a more dangerous London, a London where an unknown and deadly disease is casting fear into the hearts of the residents of Soho.

Immerse yourself in the neighbourhoods most affected by this unknown infection and discover how the pioneering physician Dr John Snow solved the outbreak. Also hear more about the fascinating history of Soho, a stunningly innovative area for discoveries and medical progress over the centuries. 

The walks will be led by Dr Ros Stanwell-Smith, a Public Health Consultant who is also a London Blue Badge Guide.
