All my tours last about an hour and a half.  They are done at a gentle pace, a stroll through the quiet back streets of London, with lots of time for asking questions and taking pictures.  Tours are ideal for small groups and families.

Public Tours

I deliver a regular series of public walking tours, across Westminster, Chelsea, Clapham Common and around Borough Market.  These are delivered in partnership with the great people at London Guided Walks. You can see the dates of all my available public tours.
