London Walks

Let’s put on your walking shoes on and experience London on foot. That’s the best way to explore the many different parts of the Metropolis. The streets will come alive and you will understand how the city works and breathes.

Here are some suggestions – but I can tailor made tours. All walks can be combined with a visit to a church, gallery or museum.

The Big One : Highlight tour  (full day)
You only have a day in London? First visit? Then this one’s for you: We’ll visit the City of Westminster and the City of London and see Big Ben, Westminster Abbey, Buckingham Palace, Piccadilly Circus, Trafalgar’s Square, St. Paul’s Cathedral, The Tower and Tower Bridge, just to name a few. We will have time for a nice cup of tea, and can even pop into a gallery or museum of your choice. (walk and public transport)

If you’d like to have a more in-depth tour you can take a half-day walk:

City of Westminster – Here you will learn the secrets of Westminster Abbey, the history of Big Ben, visit the Horse Guard Parade, as well as Buckingham Palace, Piccadilly Circus, and Trafalgar’s Square.

City of London: River Walk  We’ll take a leisurely stroll along the river. The Tower, Tower Bridge, Millennium Bridge and St Paul’s Cathedral. All while enjoying the great views of London’s skyline.

The City of London: Off the beaten track  We’ll explore hidden London, the famous Square Mile (financial powerhouse with 2000 years of history), and visit some of the City’s churches, little parks, Guildhall, and learn the history and tradition of the area.

SoHo!  What do Karl Marx, Casanova, the Beatles, Jude Law, Chinatown and Cholera all have in common? Let’s explore this small but fascinating Bohemian area in the liveliest part of London.

East London  Come with me and delve into hipster culture, and enjoy the techie, multicultural, creative areas of Shoreditch, Spitalfields Market, and Brick Lane.

Literary Bloomsbury & Covent Garden – Learn all about the lives and loves of Virginia Woolf, Sylvia Platt, Ted Hughes, Charles Dickens, JM Barry and visit scholarly London (and lots of beautiful garden squares too).
