I met with Ian right on time at Westminster and we proceeded to tour both sides of the river. ian was very friendly and knowledgeable about his city. he guided us through some well known and not so well known places offering tips on settings and composition. The time just whizzed by and I managed to capture some amazing images.... More

Met Ian on two occasions for four great learning experiences Three day walks and one evening walk I now have the confidence to use my camera in manual mode, and further have also learned some really great ways to use my mobile phone camera. I previously was disdainful of this little beauty! Versatility and vision were underlying lessons from Ian.... More

This is a company to be avoided! Having made a booking for the Westminster Walk I travelled from my home in Bedfordshire at a cost of over £40 in train fares and parking. I arrived at the meeting point at Westminster Underground Station in good time but no representative turned up. I telephoned the company and the representative claimed to... More

Really enjoyed our Westminster Walk with Ian. He was very flexible and patiently waited for us to finish taking photos. He knew exactly where and when to watch the different guard parades in the Buckingham Palace area and his other local knowledge was also much appreciated. We have come home with lovely photos of London! It was great to be... More

Having read the other reviews left by customers stating he was a 'no show', I would have preferred that to what I experienced. I had a voucher bought for me by a friend who accompanied me and my sister to London so I could attend the tour. We duly turned up on the day and time stated (emails getting to... More

I highly recommend this tour for anyone travelling to london with any level of interest in photography. I booked at very short notice which wasn't an issue for Ian. He was extremely helpful and knowledgeable. I also learnt a lot about london through our discussions as we walked from location to location. It felt like a guided tour by foot!... More

Met up with Ian outside Canada Water Station and went on an interesting tour of Rotherhithe and Bermondsey, covering a fair bit of American and British history such as The Mayflower, the Fighting Temeraire, Brunel and Dickens! On the photography side, it was not quite what I expected but so much better for it. I had thought it would be... More

Money and time well spent. 3 hours walking around some of the iconic landmarks of London learning tips and features of my camera that I didn't know or understand previously. I'm still by no means an expert, but I have begun to put what I have learned into practice in full Manual and I'm already seeing results. Thanks a lot... More

Staying in Trafalgar Square / Embankment

Neighborhood Profile
Trafalgar Square / Embankment
With its iconic Nelson’s Column, majestic oversized lions and brightly-lit fountains, Trafalgar Square is not just considered the heart of this bustling London hub, but the very core of the city itself. Beyond this esteemed gathering place are more famous icons, as well as a disproportionate numbers of the city’s most popular cultural attractions including the National Gallery and many West End theaters. Along the way to these major sites are quiet lanes and antiquated pubs to discover, as well as riverside vistas to enjoy on the embankment. With a calendar full of celebratory events, any time of year is a fine time to visit.
