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.

I have been living in London for absolute yonks, and my mum had visit many times so I took her on the tour as a change of pace loved it! For both fans of Marx and persons that are not too familiar with him.

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

My tour was excellent. Mick is a great guide and seems like a very nice guy. You don't have to be a Communist, Marxist, Socialist, labor activist, etc. to enjoy and learn many things about a world changing personality and just London itself in the...More
