Snow and soho - Public health history walk

In 1854, Dr. John Snow demonstrated that a sudden outbreak of cholera was due to contamination of a water pump in Broad Street:  on this walk, we shall explore the history of the outbreak and also the history and architecture of the Bloomsbury and Soho areas.  The walk led by popular guide and public health doctor Ros Stanwell-Smith will take around 1.5 hours and end at the John Snow pub in Broadwick Street in the centre of Soho.
