Brunel's London (and The Thames) Tour

We go to see London, the city and all it has to offer, however we so often miss the Thames, the very reason London exists. In three visits, I know I did! No longer. The... read more

I was a bit disappointed by the London Walk Tour...waited a lifetime to walk Abbey Road which he did take us too BUT he walked a mile ahead of his tour group and some were lagging behind and others jogging to keep up....a bit exhausting and the places taken too...some were so changed over the years the hype was a...

We go to see London, the city and all it has to offer, however we so often miss the Thames, the very reason London exists. In three visits, I know I did! No longer. The Brunels: one tunnel, three bridges and one huge steamship. Focus: the river. Starting at the Embankment and running all the way to Greenwich, this tour... More

We did 3 London Walks tours - The British Museum (Karen), Tower of London (Judy) and This Is London (Tom). All were great. On of the best aspects of these tours is that you don't have to pre-pay or make reservations. You just show up at the designated spot (tube stations) and pay for the tour (10 pounds per person)....

While here for a week we did three London Walks - Old Westminster - the best due to our guide, Karen, Westminster Abbey and the Shakespeare and Dickens tour - where our guide was a Shakespeare teacher and the owner of the company. All were excellent in their own ways. My companion, who visits here regularly and lived her for... More

We met our guide Harry from London Walks last Sunday afternoon at 2:00 PM at Whitechapel Underground station for "The Unknown East End" walk. Having read and heard so much about the historic East End of London for so many years, it was very enlightening to visit in person and listen to Harry's fascinating tales of such diverse subjects as...

I have taken ghost tours in many cities and this tour was the first one I did not enjoy. First, getting started was difficult as finding the guide who had no sign and no predetermined location was stressful. Then, the tour took us to quite a few 'locations' that no longer exist that once upon a time had a ghost.... More

The Internet should come with a Miranda warning. The problem being of course that anything you chisel onto the stone of this medium can be used in evidence against you. You say foolish things it makes you look foolish. So we'll just stick to the facts. And maybe ask a question or two. 1. We're puzzled by your remark that... More

An excellent guided walk around the streets, squares and historic region of Bloomsbury with Brian Hicks, one of the most informative and interesting guides I have ever met. His knowledge of the personalities, events and literature of the time was outstanding.

Guide was knowledgeable and enthusiastic. Highlight was seeing Abbey Road and Abbey Road Studios. It wasn't too terribly exciting otherwise.

We chose the Old City walk which started at Tower Hill tube at 2 pm so it would be good to visit the tower in the morning and then join the walk in the afternoon. Lawrence was our guide who was a mine of information. He pointed out details on buildings, memorials and landmarks and explained their origins and significance.... More

I have done lots of these walks and always thoroughly enjoy them. So much information, interesting facts, history to take in. Discovering the inns just off the main streets and all the intricacies of the inner workings of the law is fascinating. I've done this one before but with a different leader - great to have another perspective.

Staying in City of London

Neighborhood Profile
City of London
From its ancient past as a Roman trading outpost to its 21st century status as the wealthiest square mile in the world, the financial district known simply as “The City” is one of London's most historic and fascinating neighborhoods. Here high rise office towers such as Norman Foster’s Gherkin mingle with Roman ruins and architectural marvels from virtually every era in between, including Christopher Wren's glorious St.Paul's Cathedral, and John Soane's dauntingly classicist Bank of England. This neighborhood is also home to some of the finest restaurants and plushest hotels in Europe, in addition to an assortment of watering holes, upscale shops, and Tube stations. During the week, the City is abuzz with white collar workers going about their business; the weekend sees this area turn into a quiet haven for sightseers.
