To Do List rediscovered the Intrepid Explorer inside, joining Uninvited Guests’ Lavender Hill-based adventure of discovery “The Good Neighbour”.

We can’t recommend highly enough this great theatrical tour through a fascinating slice of London history. If you’re a regular at the BAC, you’re sure to learn something you never knew, and discover the story behind buildings you’ve walked past hundreds of times.

From the bombings of the Blitz, to the riots of 2011, the Intrepid Explorers journey (ages 13-130!) takes in the streets, houses and shops of Lavender Hill, and relates history with a few surprises (and a well-timed hot drink). Make sure you’ve warmed up your singing voice, too, as you’ll be called upon to belt out a few tunes before the journey is over.

Other journeys are available for younger audiences:

  • Young Adventurers (ages 6+, grown-ups welcome) get to snoop around BAC itself, navigating a chain of interactive environments to find clues and characters. Commissioned spaces have been created by Bryony Kimmings, Kazuko Hohki, Ruth Paton, Coney, Sheila Ghelani, and Kirsty Harris & Matthew Blake
  • Early Investigators (ages 5 and under, accompanied by an adult) have fun in an animated play space, the newly renovated Bees Knees. There are games and experiences aimed at encouraging participants to be curious and explore the environment.

A great way to spend a couple of hours – rock up early to eat some tasty grub in the BAC Cafe Bar, and then join a journey (although you will need to book in advance, it’s really popular) to experience an enjoyable AND educational trip.


I am Joint Editor at To Do List. I like: nice pubs, film marathons, not doing real marathons, bad comedy, plays/musicals with shorter second halves, and the Oxford comma.
