It's all walking, rain or shine...and it rained on mine. So, if there's a chance of rain - bring an umbrella. If you're a little more than a casual Beatles fan, you will not learn anything new. You won't go in anywhere, but, you will get to see some of the major sights associated with the Beatles in London. Like... More

London Walks has some 500 walks in their catalogue. On a cold February evening I turned up for the Mayflower to Brunell's Tunel walk. Despite just having me as a participant Tim gave me the most wonderful walk and talk. I learnt a lot about London history in his company and soon forgot about the cold wind and rain. It... More

As a big lover of walking tours I was looking forward to the Notting Hill & Portobello Road tour ...... unfortunately our tour guide's lack of enthusiasm left us rather disappointed, no friendly hello on arrival & a very functional delivery with a lack of humour & excitement. Walking at times in silence. Having read other reviews it sounds like... More

Lively and informative tour of the blitz sites complete with a good historical context thrown in. Mostly in close proximity to St Paul's.

After doing some of the fabulous museums in London, we went on the "Introdunction to London" walking tour on our last day there, and it was the best thing we did. Simon was so knowledgable and entertaining. He made the history come alive, regarding the Westminster Palace, the Buckingham Palace, St. James's Palace, Queen Elizabeth, Churchill and other players, and... More

I have done several London Walks and they are always more than worth the 8-10 pounds, taking you to interesting places you would never find on your own. On this latest one,"Secret London", Peter showed us some incredible unknown bits of London history, along with a few great pubs to visit.

I did the Saturday night "Ghosts of the Old City" walk, and my tour guide was Simon. Simon was very knowledgeable and very interactive with the guests. He knew his stuff, and the stories were great. Sure, some of them were creepy, but the historical aspects make it even more worth it. The walk took around 2 hours, and we... More

We went on our walk hosted by Simon on Sunday 5th Feb. We have been around the area before but missed several landmarks and facts previously. The walk was informative and entertaining and there was about 16 in our group I think. We were out for over 2 hours and consider this good value. We would definitely go on another... More

We always do one or two walks on our trips to London. This time we did the Brunel walk and the The Square Mile. Both very different but very interesting. The group meet outside a tube station and proceed from there. The Brunel walk consists of a trip on the river,a train and of course on foot walking. Whereas the... More

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.
