We thoroughly enjoyed this fascinating walk. Brilliantly conceived as a tracing of the steps of Oliver Twist arriving in London. The ‘story’ was intertwined with plenty of other material which, overall, painted a wonderfully evocative picture of Victorian London. The guide thoughtfully and skillfully involved a couple of under 10s. Plenty of invitations for questions. I would not hesitate in recommending this companies guided walks.

Hazel literally brought Oliver Twist to life. This walk concentrated on chapter 8, following the footsteps of Oliver from The Angel pub in Islington to the likely lodgings of Fagin in Farringdon. The tour provides a snapshot of London in 1838 when Dickens wrote the story. It’s fascinating to discover why the Regency terraces of Pentonville Road had such long front gardens, and contrast it to the cramped, barely living, conditions of the ‘Rookeries’. Hazel’s engaging style detailed the implications of herding cattle through the streets to Smithfield meat market and why you might pay someone to cross the road. It made me think differently about pollution before combustion engines, the smells, noise, customs, and why the late Victorians sanitised certain street names.
As we twisted through the allies and streets Oliver’s narrative, Hazel enriched and contextualised Dickens’ London, it really was a great walking tour.

Thank you for your kind words, Fred. I'm so glad that you enjoyed Oliver Twist was brought to life for you and that you enjoyed exploring London in 1838. Dickens was a master of bringing the city to life in his stories and it's fascinating to see how his descriptions still ring true today. I hope you'll consider joining us on another one of our walks in the future. We have something for everyone, whether you're interested in history, literature or just want to explore more of London's amazing history. Thanks again for your review and we hope to see you soon!

All the tours are fantastic. I've been on almost 10 of them and I felt that I had learned a lot on each of them. Hazel is incredible: she knows aa great deal and has a wonderful way to communicate her knowledge : she is funny, she is friendly, she's a lovely person.
Although she's not the one responsible for the financial tour, I highly recommend the tour: the guide is such an expert on the financial district and of London as a financial center that you get so much interesting information that you almost need a second tour! It really is a very good value for your money.
