Thank you to you and your incredible team of actors for the fantastic, entertaining and fascinating Christmas chocolate tour. It was an excellently planned tour and brilliant to discover hidden gems around the St James/Jermyn Street area which I never knew about.
Thanks so much for the tour you provided for the team from Historic Royal Palaces. It was fantastic – Matthew has a great breadth of knowledge and is able to put it across in a fun and accessible way. It was nicely paced and offered amazing, unique insights into streets that we thought we knew. We especially liked the free ‘gruel’ and special team bonding quiz at the end. Highly recommended!
We were enthralled from start to finish with our customized tour. Matt’s passion and enthusiasm brought his deep knowledge of the period to vivid life. We drank of the abominable, heathenish liquor called coffee as we drank in the sites and atmosphere of old London. Wandering the small dark alleys, delighted by the most fantastic sites they opened into, left us much to reflect on about the nature and means of innovation. Inspiring!
If you live in London and love coffee, I can't recommend this enough. Click here to read the tweet.
I am so glad that I took a group of students on the Coffeehouse Walk led by Dr. Green as part of a course on mapping London textually. I had introduced them to the importance of coffeehouses and periodicals in late 17th c./early 18th c. English culture. But nothing in the classroom could have brought that world alive for me and my students as did Matthew and Unreal City's two actors. We all benefitted enormously.
Dr Matthew Green took a group of students from the University of Bonn on a guided tour of Restoration and 18thcentury coffeehouses in London. He was a marvellous guide and his tour was marked by his profound knowledge of the literature and culture of the 18thcentury. We were absolutely enthusiastic about the lively and informative tour!
Brilliant walk with narration, actors and music.
A new theatrical walking tour brings London's historic print district to life with medieval pioneers, seditious pamphleteers and the first newspaper moguls – and with the chance to throw rotten tomatoes at a pilloried hack, what's not to like?
