I've done a couple of Aidan's tours and intend doing the ones I've missed soon. The Gangland and Punk tours were great. I worked in Soho for years and felt I was pretty knowledgeable but I learned a hell of a lot. Seeing the sites...More
I came across the Soho Punk Tour while I was compiling a list of must-dos for my first trip to London — due to my schedule, I requested a private tour and Aidan was quick to respond, and very accommodating - luckily, for me -...More
We went on the Soho Punk Rock Tour with Aidan and enjoyed it so much that we’ll be booking his other tours soon.
The benefits of being shown round by someone who had actually lived in London while history was being made and taken part...More
Booked this tour initially to understand more about Strummer and the Clash. There were lots of good anecdotes for this. The accounts of the social history of the the area were also fascinating.
Aidan was enthusiastic and funny throughout the 2 hour walk. He clearly...More
Amazing insight into social history, as a Clash fanatic, the most incredible insight into where it all started. Aidan is a local who knows his stuff. We took a private tour to suit our convenience which was no fuss at all for him.It paints a...More
Brought back many fine memories for me and my mates. Tied up a few loose ends in my knowledge of the subject but was made really fun by Aiden who has much 1st hand knowledge and a real passion for the subject. Well worth the...More
Aiden has an extensive first-hand knowledge, and is an absolute pleasure through the tour. His added colour and clear passion make the whole walk fun, informative, and interesting. Will definitely join him for one of his other tours on my next visit.
On our recent trip to London we organized a private tour with Aidan that was centered around his Strummerwalk tour but also included parts of some of his other tours. My husband is a huge Clash fan so that was his main interest but we...More
As promised, I came back for another tour with Aidan after the outstanding job he did last fall on the Soho tour. This time he walked me all around Ladbroke Grove for the Strummer/Clash tour, and it did not disappoint. He really knows his stuff,...More
Like most other born and bred Londoners I have spent a fair bit of my time in, out and around Soho so I really enjoyed putting some of its ‘underworld’ stories and characters names and faces to familiar locations. Aidan is an interesting and informative...More
The go-to district for a good time in London, Soho hosts a wealth of world-class theatres and a compelling lineup of cafes, restaurants, pubs, bars, and clubs. At Soho's core is London's original Red Light District and the epicenter of the LGBT scene – and thus the city's hottest nightlife. For shopping enthusiasts, Soho is not only the home of London's greatest concentration of boutique shops, but also the
most strategic place to set off on a tour of the world's most celebrated department stores. In the southern part of the neighborhood lies Chinatown, with its multitude of delicious and affordable restaurants. Closer to the Thames, Chinatown's narrow and teeming lantern-lit lanes spill onto the expansive hub of glitzy Leicester Square.
