Over the last 15 years I have taken many guided walking tours with London walks, all of them great from HarryPotter, Dickens, Sherlock Holmes and Brunel down to Haunted London, Jack the ripper, Pub walk by gaslight etc. Always finding little corners of London that I would not have found myself, nice stories and anecdotes interesting pubs. Great guides, most... More

We were met at Monument tube station by Anne and spent the next two hours soaking up the atmosphere and history of the square mile. We went through markets, alleyways, cobbled streets and historic buildings all described by Anne with knowledge, anecdotes, obscure historical facts and humour. We learned more about the city in two hours with Anne than years... More

This tour was incredible, so much fun. It started with boarding a Thames cruiser. Our guide Allan pointed out lots of attractions along the river. Were quite past the Globe Theater when we debarked, then did our walking tour down to the area where one of Brunel's giant ships was launched. If you find any photos of Isambard Brunel on... More

On a recent visit to London, my friend and I decided to follow a walk in a Time Out book. The walk took us around Bayswater and we ended up on the Edgeware Road to enjoy some delicious Lebanese lunch. We decided to do the recommended route in reverse order so started at the Queensway tube station on the Central... More

I'm in a fortunate position of spending a lot of my time this year in London which means I've been on roughly 20 of the walks this company provide, including one of the away days to beautiful Bath. All the guides I've been with are engaging, highly knowledgable and funny. The history and facts are presented in a memorable and... More

Friday 2pm Tottenham Court Road, a group of strangers, British and foreign tourists, gathered to meet our guide for a 2 hour walking tour. The walk took in some famous London music locations which were bought to life by the engaging guide who was knowledgeable and approachable and loud enough for everyone to hear. The main focus was on 60's... More

Excellent two hour walk taken by Richard IV (London Walks have several guides called Richard, so they've numbered them!). Richard was a great guide, very knowledgeable about Sherlock Holmes, and Conan Doyle, but also about other aspects of London's history and development as well. We explored some hidden alleys, streets and squares that we simply wouldn't have found on our... More

Thoroughly enjoyed this walk in The City, ably led and explained by Richard III. Despite pouring rain and cold, he led us through the streets around St Paul's and we heard stories of gallows, hangings and life in prison. He was very knowledgeable and entertaining and would highly recommend.

I have managed to do 2 tours through London Walks in between meetings. One was with Simon doing Old Westminster and another with Richard III, Ghosts Gaslamps and Guiness. Both these are great value for money. Entertaining, informative and takes you back to London in the years gone by. The convenience of meeting at a central point in the city... More
