Simon guided my party through the history of Covent Garden from the early days when it was no more than fields, through to its murky history during the 17th and 18th centuries, up to present day shopping and entertainment image. Simon has an amazing array of dates and historical facts that entertain you and surprise you as you meander through... More

Our family of 5 took 4 walks with London Walks, including Tower of London, Beneath the Bearskin, British Museum, and Old Westminster. We enjoyed each and every one and they gave us so much more context than if we'd explored these sights on our own. Beneath the Bearskin was especially great for our kids, as Martin the guide brought an... More

Very nice way to visit London. Affordable guided tours, usually 20 pounds for 2 hours. I did the Harry Potter and Greenwich tours. Guides are knowledgeable and interesting. Our Harry Potter guide Richard was able to captivate both children and adults. The Greenwich tour was full of info. A very nice commented boat ride to go from Central London to... More

I think the rating was generous as the more accurate rating would be 2.5. The tour we actually took did not match the description on the web site and thus it did not meet our expectations. The more accurate name should be "Gaslights in Old Westminster." In looking at the tour description I can name many things we did not... More

David T, Owner at London Walks, responded to this review

Dear O2bmmw, Thanks for your long, thoughtful note. Deserves a long, thoughtful reply. Which is by way of saying – this of course goes for every "management response" we put up here – we're going to meet your criticisms head on. It's always the tension between two very different perspectives and accounts – the good old dialectical method – that... More

My sister and I did the "Darkest Victorian" tour which starts near the London Bridge. You just show up with 10 pounds, no reservation needed. Our tour guide was great and knew a lot about a lot! Our tour covered the darker side of Victorian England (prostitution, child labor, etc.) and was very informative. It was about 2 hours long... More

We tried one of these walks and were so impressed we have done several more. We have lived and worked in London for over 30 years but the helpful and entertaining guides opened our eyes to so many things we simply had never noticed

Simon's well of knowledge was incredible, how he remembers all those dates and facts ill never know.. The tour... More

Adam is an amazing guide and incredible story-teller -- and since this walk is all about landmarks and stories you cannot hope to get a better guide. My husband and I are addicted to London Walks and this is really one of the best ones that we have been on.

Even though we were quite cold at the beginning of June,we thoroughly enjoyed the Magna Carta walk. The basis for law today was very striking and visiting the buildings and gardens for the British legal system lovely. However, our favorites the following day were inside the Victoria and Albert and in the PM the National Gallery. We saw the highlights... More

Staying in Marylebone

Neighborhood Profile
Marylebone offers what so many London neighborhoods cannot: a village feel coupled with urban convenience. Much of its success rests in its location. Wedged between the northeastern corner of Hyde Park and the southern end of Regent's Park and with a number of Tube stations within easy reach, Marylebone is as pedestrian friendly as Central London gets. The bustling shopping mecca of Oxford Street separates it from Soho and Mayfair, exclusive Regent Street marks its border with Fitzrovia, and cosmopolitan Edgware Road serves as its western edge. Within this enviably situated quarter are an array of outstanding restaurants (from Michelin darlings to down and dirty cheeseburgers), an impressive assortment of independently owned shops, and some of the city's quietest and most pleasant nooks, crannies and cobbled lanes.
