I have been on several London walks but this was simply the best, with a boat ride thrown in and an amazing surprise at the end! Our guide was knowledgeable and great fun. I would and have highly recommend this to anyone, whether or not they are particularly interested in Brunel

we were told about these walks at our hotel, so decided to give one a try. We were afraid it would be going from pub to pub drinking. But our guide, Richard III, made it more of a history and education of the surrounding area and it was SO interesting! We both thought it was one of the highlights of... More

We did this work which was hosted by two people who used to be with the Met police in the anti-terrorist division. The walk itself was a bit random and more a collection of stories of terrorist incidents across London. It goes through some very nice places in the heart of London which was very enjoyable. It was very crowded... More

We joined a walking tour outside the Embankment Tube station on a Saturday night. The walk took us to places we had never seen, although having worked in London for over 20 years and told of history along the way that you just never knew. The walk is based around the still working gas lights from many years ago. On... More

I've taken about 8 different walks with London Walks and all have had very knowledgeable guides who knew how to handle the size of the group (ranging from 6 to 30 the times I've gone). Many of the guides have been doing this type of work with London Walks for 20 or more years. London Walks offers dozens of tours... More

I had no clue what to expect from this tour and I've been on a lot of walking tours in London. The guide for this tour knew so much about London and this was honestly one of the best walks around London that I've done. You'll see a different part of the city that tourist normally wouldn't see and in... More

Hi Audra, Thanks for the lovely review. The Brunel tour is certainly different, and one of those things that i think everry Londoner should do really. I particularly loved the view along the river, and the walk to the Brunel Museum is lovely. The mayflower pub nearby is fab for a drink and something to eat afterwards too! Noel More

We met at embankment then went on a short trip on the Thames learning about the history and expertise of Brunel, his bridges, the large ocean liners, how cables were laid across the seas. Then by DLR overland and short tube journey to Brunel's Museum followed by lunch at the Mayflower pub. A very informative walk, with interesting guide, super... More

These walks are totally free unless your walk entails using a boat or the underground. We went on two walks. The Mayfair area of London and the Brunnel Museum and tour of Brunnel tunnels, which was the first tunnel built under the Thames. This tour took us on a boat and the underground down to Woolrich. They are very informative... More

Hi Janet, Thanks for your review and feedback on the tours. Just to confirm though that our other walks aren't free, as like all things there's no such thing as a free lunch - or a free walk; there's always a price to pay. Our prices are great value at £10 for adults and £8 for concessions, which is 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.
