The Big Issue's 'night walk' will throw London in a new light


The Big Issue – the ubiquitous street newspaper founded in London and sold by homeless individuals across the world – is running a ‘night walk’ on 11 March.

It’s a chance to see London in a whole new way. Starting off at St John’s Church in Waterloo at 10pm, you’ll be guided around the city’s iconic sights by Big Issue vendors, giving you personal as well as historical insights.

Rather than the usual double-decker bus tour of London (great when it's not raining!), the night walk will present you with a radically new perspective: those who’ve experienced the city – its streets, spaces and people – from a position of homelessness.   

Drinks and snacks will be given out along the route’s pit stops, and most participants will end the route somewhere between two and five in the morning. Registration is £25 per person but groups of five can save by only paying £100 when registering all together. All the money goes to the Big Issue Foundation and you can find out more information here.
