Guided London Walking Tours.
A London's oldest buildings
In a secret city of ancient buildings, courtyards and narrow streets, you'll discover how Stinking Lane and Turn again Lane got their names, and go inside some of London's oldest and most fascinating buildings, some of which can only be visited by special arrangement.
For more than 250 years Mayfair has been the most upmarket district in London, and many well-known books have been written here. We explore streets with familiar names like Savile Row, famous for its men's suits, and Piccadilly, home of the Royal Academy.
C Dickens's London
Follow in the footsteps of Charles Dickens, the nineteenth century writer, and listen as we recite parts of his novels and bring characters like Oliver Twist vividly to life. Stand by the remains of the Marshalsea, where Dickens's own father was imprisoned, and which is the scene of much of his novel “Little Dorrit”.
D Clerkenwell to the Angel
We walk along St John Street, where animals used to be driven on their way to Smithfield Market, and see a 1504 gateway. We pass the historic Sadler's Wells Theatre and the original termination of the New River, constructed to bring water to London from springs over 30 km away.
E South Bank
We walk along the River Thames to Bankside, where the former power generating station has been transformed into Tate Modern art gallery.
