Searched for photo tours in London and found these guys. Tour was very good and our guide, Lou Smith was very knowledgable in a wide range of cameras.

I attended the Street Photography course on Sunday 5th July. It was great as it taught you how to take photos using reflection and composition. There was a small group of us so individual tutoring was also given, which was very useful for improving my photography skills. The feedback was very constructive. Very good instructions given.

I attended the How to Use Your Digital Camera course on Sat 18th April. I chose it because it was suitable for bridge cameras (like mine) as well as DSLRs, the reviews were good, and because you got to go out and actually do the things you were learning about. When I arrived at the coffee shop where we met,... 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.
