London launches Da Vinci walk

Ahead of the Da Vinci Code movie, Lonson’s Big Bus Company is offering a walk of the capital that takes in the sites mentioned in the book.  An expert guide will lead walkers on a stroll around some of the key areas in London that link to the book. 

It takes up to two hours and will be launched on 1 April running throughout the summer to 30 September 2006 departing daily at 1pm from Trafalgar Square bus stop, just outside National Gallery Sainsbury Wing.

Walkers will be led into the mysterious world of Professor Robert Langdon to discover more about his struggle to decipher the world’s most ancient code. 

The walk takes in the Strand for a discussion on the mysteries of Lay Lines before travelling on to visit the magnificent 12th century Temple church which was one of the many locations visited by both Robert Langdon and the albino monk on their quest to unravel the mystery.  A short bus ride is then taken to Westminster Abbey before going on to St James Park and finishing back in Trafalgar Square.  The guide will illustrate the links each of these sights have with the book.

Mark Osborne, Commercial Manager, The Big Bus Company, comments, “This walk is an excellent activity for all those fascinated by the mysteries of Dan Brown’s tale and will clarify a lot of the intrigue surrounding the book.  We decided to build on the obvious links to London whilst offering an exciting insight into the mystery and drama of the story.  Our experienced guide will highlight key sections of the book and leave them to make up their own minds on the controversial conclusion offered at the end.”


The Da Vinci Code Walk is an innovative and timely addition to the four guided, themed walks already included in the price of a Big Bus ticket - the Movie Location Walk, the Beatles Walk, The Royal London Walk and the Ghosts by Gaslight Walk
