Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Covent Garden, Covent Garden, London, England

Once upon a time, Van Gogh lived in London. It happened when London wasn’t so densely populated, and artists from all over Europe travelled here to be inspired by its fog and enchanting architecture.
You will see vibrant Covent Garden, a hotspot for creative people since the 19th century. That’s precisely where Vincent Van Gogh worked while living in London.

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Strand, London England

You will walk down the flamboyant area and reach Vincent’s favourite street, the centre of London’s book and print trade.
That’s where he would come every morning to smell the fresh paint of the newspaper and go through the latest news. Luckily some of the Strand’s shops thrived through the centuries and are still open.

Duration: 15 minutes

Stop At: Kennington Park Road, London England

Walk through the emerald-green park while listening to the twirling birds as Van Gogh did 200 years ago.
Today you are not you anymore. You become one with Van Gogh.
This park is one of the few with frogs, and in the 19th century, Vincent went there to watch cricket games.

Duration: 20 minutes

Stop At: Van Gogh House London, 87 Hackford Road, London SW9 0RE England

Later on, you will see his rented place – just a tiny house outskirts in his time. Because back then, Stockwell was a rural area with only a few houses – a true paradise for artists to live, create and immerse into the atmosphere of woods, fields and flowers.

Duration: 15 minutes
