Where do the walks take place?
The dropdown list from the The Walks menu gives a description of the current public walks. We aim to go off the usual tourist track or to explore the unusual and hidden aspects of better known areas. Walk themes usually focus on London’s social history, particularly on the often overlooked contribution of women. Forthcoming Walks and Tours is our calendar of current walks.
How many people do you take on the walks?
There is a limit of around 20 people on public walks and many groups are smaller. If you would like to book a private walk for a larger group, do get in touch to discuss this.
Who comes on the walks?
It is usually a mix of people who live or work in London, visitors, tourists and students.
How long are the walks?
In length, usually between a mile and a half and two miles (2.5 – 3.25 kilometres); in time, between one and a half and two hours.
How do I book?
We use Eventbrite to book our walks. Simply click on the booking link on the Forthcoming Walks and Tours page for the walk you want to book. If you haven’t booked a place you may still be able to turn up and pay on the day, but do contact the guide direct to check the arrangements.
Where do the walks start and end?
Starting points are always easy to find and usually at an Underground station. You will be told where and given directions when you book. Walks often finish close to the starting point. Otherwise you will be close to another nearby Underground, Overground or DLR Station.
Are your walks accessible for people with disabilities?
Some routes may have steps or an uneven or cobbled surface. If you have particular access needs you might find it helpful to get in touch beforehand so we can make sure you get the best experience.
