Four of us wanted to do a walk because the weather was fine, so we chose the Sherlock Holmes walk. The convenience of this company is incredible. You show up at the appointed time and place, pay your fare, and walk. Our guide was knowledgeable and interesting. None of us are what you would call Sherlock Holmes fans, but we... More

I've done other London Walks - and this one was pretty interesting. You get to by-pass the lines, which was nice. Just make sure to leave time after the official tour has ended to if you want to see everything.

As usual - London Walks gave us a great few hours entertaining education about another aspect of London. Boat trip from Embankment round to Canary Wharf (Isle of Dogs) was a great way to see Brunel's bridges (and many other London sights) before walking around the launchpad of Brunel's Great Eastern. Tour guide Robert is a wealth of information about... More

did the Thames river 'beach combing' walk. Tour leader Fiona was fantastic, really knowledgable and generous with her time and knowledge. You could probably do the rooting about on the beach bit yourself but I would have found it a bit meaningless without having someone like Fiona. She bought the area (and most importantly your 'finds' ) to life in... More

These people take you on themed walks around points of interest in London--whatever your interest may be. My family took three of these walks--Tower of London, London during the Blitz, the Bloomsbury literature walk. All were excellent, informative and interesting, fast paced. Guides were very knowledgeable. Each tour left us with a good basis for continuing sightseeing plus some good... More

I went on the evening pub walk through Hampstead Village with Peter. It was a great tour, different to the other sightseeing tours you can do in London. Peter described lots of local characters from the past that lived in the village, showed us the houses of the rich and famous that now live there, and really gave us an... More

On our first trip ever to London, it was recommended to us to take walking tours with London Walks in order to get to know the history and attractions of the city. They did not disappoint. We recommend Secrets and Splendours of St. Paul, Old Westminister, The Tower af London, Royal London and The Jack The Ripper Tours. The knowledgable... More

A magic walk with Richard Walker (or Richard III)! Find where the visitor's entrance for the Ministry of Magic is and what bricks should you tap to open the entrance to the Diagon alley, and how J K R books are connected to Greek mythology and English folklore. Two really fascinating hours!

"Strike and solidarity in 1889" Ann gave us a fascinating account of life in Bermondsey and in particular for dockers in the late 19th century and at the time of the "Tanner strike" in 1889. Quite by chance I opened this week's edition of The Methodist Recorder and found a double page spread under the above named title which added... More
