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.

Our guide Heike did a brilliant job of summarising the life of Karl Marx, stopping off around Soho at relevant places to illustrate his points. Though there was a lot to learn, it was condensed down really well and made entertaining by someone who obviously...More

We had Heiko as our guide and he pitched the tour just right. It was incredibly informative - only at one point did it become a bit overwhelming (the lane off China Town) however it was necessary to explain the origins of Marxism. He was...More

Very informative :) Not something to bring the kiddies along for but the guide kept a potentially dry subject interesting.

It was a fantastic tour with Mick Brooks. It finely combined insight on Marx's personal life in London, on the wider late 19th century Europe and on the development of his theories. Was thorough and fascinating at the same time. Mick was a great giude!...More

Perennially fashionable since the days of Henry VIII,
the aristocratic “Clubland” of St James's is a premier
destination for high end craft and bespoke design.
Here you’ll lose count of the Royal Warrants (which
indicate that the Royal Family patronizes the
establishment) seen in shop front windows, even during
a short stroll to bordering Green Park or St James’s

We start in Piccadilly walk around Soho and end up, usually, in the British museum. Each guide takes a slightly different route.
