The walk started out at Piccadilly Circus Tube station. Richard IV took us on an interesting and entertaining two hour walk stopping frequently to tell us about both fictional and real events having to do with the activity of spies in London. I can really recommend this walk to people interested in World War Two and/or reading spy novellas. Bring... More

I've been on over 20 of these walks and they are of a consistently high standard. I decided to review this particular one as it was probably the best overall in terms of guide 'performance', stories and especially locations visited. Katy was the great guide we had and she took us around Covent Garden. Not just the streets which we've... More

I've been on a few of these walks, most recently the Brunel walk and 'a village in piccadilly'. Both led by excellent guides. Informative, friendly and funny. A great way to see the city and to learn. Can't recommend them highly enough.

We have been on four walking tours in London with this company. They are two hours each with knowledge guides. No registration is needed and you meet by an assigned underground station. We did Westminster Abbey, portobello market, Tower of London and St. Paul's cathedral. Very nice!

We were here in March and enjoyed LW, back in August and had an equally good time. Two hour walking tours each day with guides that are terrific. All the guides have different specialities and personalities but overall we have never had a bad experience. Plus, no advance registration. Discounts for seniors and if you taking more than 3 LW...

This was my first London Walks tour; it won't be my last. Joanne is a wonderful guide, and I wish I could remember even some of the information she imparted. She had presence and made sure we could all see and hear. London Walks is fortunate to have had her for a number of years. It was easy to meet... More

I love doing these walks, so far have done 5. The guides are professional, interesting, and often funny. They cover 'proper' history and also bring a modern context into the conversation. Doing the walks mean I have gone to areas of London that I wouldn't otherwise have visited, and the walks bring meaning and life to lots of features I... More

We've been on several London walks but enjoyed a "walk" to Greenwich on a recent long weekend in London. We all met near the Tower and then went down to Greenwich on the river after which we had a 2 hour walking tour. The guide (Isobel) was very good. These walks are a real opportunity to go to places you... More

Spent a pleasant couple of hours walking around from St Pauls to Farringdon with a really great guide Andrew. This is such an interesting area if you are familiar with A Christmas Carol, Pickwick Papers and other such works. An inexpensive and memorable way to spend an afternoon.

I went on 3 London Walks and they were all excellent: The Unknown East End (Harry), Greenwich (Richard III), and Haunted London (can’t remember the guide’s name). The guides were professionals and the £10 walk cost is what you tip on a decent “free” tour so they are good value. London has an incredibly rich history and I think specialised... More
