About Karl Marx The Walking Tour
Karl Marx lived and worked in London. His ideas inspired protests, strikes, rebellions, revolutions, terrorism, warfare, struggles for freedom, democracy and liberty, and regimes of tyrannical repression. Marx’s story combines comedy, tragedy, love, hate, hope and despair. This sets the backdrop to an intellectual expedition to unravel the mysteries of history, politics, economics and philosophy. We walk you through the life and ideas of Karl Marx. Sundays 11am Piccadilly Circus in front of Criterion Theatre.

This is a tour for those interested in History or Economy at least. The guide is filled with information and an open heart to discuss. It is a great way to spend an afternoon!

This is an informative, well-organised, enjoyable tour for anyone interested in Communist regimes and the historical, ideological contexts behind them. Heiko Khoo, our tour guide, is very professional and has conducted fruitful research in Marxist theories and politics of Communist regimes (eg. China), which enriches the tour with a very insightful and rigorous academic input. His delivery is humorous and engaging. The content is digestable and no pre-requisite of specific knowledge of Marxist theory is demanded. I have learned a lot from his introduction to Marxist theory and more importantly, how London was the stage of his life stories. It was an amazement to find out that the Communist Manifesto went viral from the little cafe shop 5 min from where I live in the City of Westminster, which has dramatically destabilised the old world order and still has a great impact to many social democrats/socialist regimes today. Marxist theory, although marginalised or neglected in some academic fields/traditions, is still of great importance to the formations of the world order and ideological conflicts interwoven in international relations today. More importantly, studying the class struggle and critiques of capitalism can guide us to reposition ourselves with respect to our own voices and agency. This tour was budget-friendly and not physically demanding (you just need to walk for a very short distance of fewer than 2 miles). I definitely recommend this tour with guide Heiko to everyone.

I will recommend this to everyone with the slightest interested in history. The guide succeed in combining the history of Marx' life with a very good introduction to the teachings of Marx and with a wit brings part of the narrative to nowadays politics in Britain today.

It was an informative and enjoyable tour of the places in central London, that are associated with Karl Marx. The tour guide was knowledgeable and humorous. The total time of the tour was around 2 hours. It would have finished in the British Museum, however due to the current COVID-19 restrictions, we could not go into the museum without a prior booking.
