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.

An excellent guided tour where you get to see Soho, learn about the era and Marx's theory and life, laugh, and think. Friendly and engaging atmosphere, with the bonus of a good pub stop.
