Dr Jekyll & Mr Hyde Walk
Welcome to Victorian Gothic London
Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson is a novel in which setting plays an important feature. The novel is set in London and draws heavily on Stevenson’s knowledge of his hometown Edinburgh to create a chilling setting which emphasises the themes of good and evil.
Most of the London locations mentioned the most are in Soho. Even though fictional, there are places we can see which match the description. The walk includes excerpts of the book which students are welcome can read out - it really helps recreate gothic London. Throughout the tour I'll also share interesting facts about Robert Louis Stevenson and draw some parallels with his other works.
Suitable for all age groups. Please note all children must be accompanied by an adult.
