Largactyl Shuffle – guided cultural walks
Are you interested in London’s hidden stories and history? Then CoolTan Arts Largactyl Shuffle is for you! Join us on our fun guided cultural walks for mental and physical health and wellbeing.
Our walks happen on the third Saturday of each month and last approximately four hours. Walks take place in Southwark, South London and are for a maximum distance of 4.8 miles.
Each month we explore a different theme, through intriguing talks on local history, arts and health. You can learn new things, make friends, get fit and have fun!
The walks are free and open for everyone to attend, no pre-booking required, just turn up!

The Largactyl Shuffle has been running since 2006 and is named after the oldest anti-psychotic drug, Largactyl, that can have extreme physical side effects including a distinctive shambolic gait, or ‘shuffling’. The walks are researched and led by our Largactyl Shuffle volunteer group who meet weekly to plan and research.
