About Capital Walks




Capital Walks in London is run by me, Sue McCarthy.  I am a Londoner born and bred who loves walking and has a particular interest in women’s contribution to London life. After working for many years  in adult education and charities I stumbled across a course for walking tour guides while I was renewing my library books on-line and got hooked!

I am a trained and qualified Guide and a member of Clerkenwell & Islington Guides Association and Camden Tour Guides Association.  I also guide regularly at The Foundling Museum and Canonbury Tower.

In addition to my scheduled walks published here I offer private tours and customised walks to suit your timetable.

This blog is my way way of sharing with you some of the fascinating people and places, often hidden from history, that I discover while walking London streets and researching and planning my walks.


Why not to discover hidden London.
