The Famous Square Mile

In an introduction to the City of London, this walk you will tell you all you need to know about the historic core of London. From Romans to the Rothschilds via the Great Fire and the Blitz, we will cover 2000 years of history in under 2 hours. Prepare to be amazed by what lies in plain sight.

Queer Soho

For centuries the everyday lives of queer people were suppressed. 50 years on from the Sexual Offences Act (1967), which set the wheels of equality in motion, we will walk around some of Soho's lesser-known queer locations. Along the way we will hear stories of how it's LGBTQ inhabitants have shaped society as we know it today. We’ll discover tales of loves lost and found, deceit, and debauchery.

City of London: Urban Jungle - a walk through the City gardens

Did you know that London has nearly one tree for every inhabitant? According to the United Nations it is classified as a forest. The City of London contributes massively to this surprising accolade. And much of this is due to disaster. Join me and hear the tale of how London has risen from the ashes to become one of the most biologically diverse capital cities in the world.

  • Time: 11am
  • Price: £15 per person

London’s Guildhall

The City of London’s largest medieval hall dates back to the Saxon times. Once a palace for the Lord Mayor, a courtroom for religious criminals, and a banqueting hall for kings and queens, it has witnessed the greatest events of British history. Housing one of the most stunning interiors in the City, finely adorned with monuments to British heroes, including two giants - the legendary guardians of the City.

  • Duration: Approx 2 hours
  • Time: 11am
  • Price: £15 per person

Lost Rivers of London: Following the Fleet

Probably the best-known of London’s lost rivers, the River Fleet was instrumental in the formation of old London. Now invisible to the naked eye, it has left its mark for those in the know.  Walking along the route of its lower reaches we will be walking in the footsteps of rampant Romans, the Artful Dodger and Oliver Twist, and that most memorable of Tudor monarchs - Elizabeth I.

  • Duration: Approx 2 hours
  • Time: 11am
  • Price: £15 per person

Lost Rivers of London: Wandering the Walbrook

In this walk through trendy Shoreditch and its polar opposite neighbour, the City of London, I argue the case for the Walbrook being one of the most important rivers in the world. Lost to us for over 500 years, its waters still flow beneath our feet. As we travel the route of its vanished valley, you will hear stories of Shakespeare, raving lunatics, and an earthquake that shook London.

  • Duration: Approx 2 hours
  • Time: 11am
  • Price: £15 per person

Death and Damnation

This city is seriously old. There are more dead people in the City of London than actually live there today. From Roman gladiators to City suicides, this walk focuses on those unfortunate souls whose passages from this world have been less than natural. Steel yourselves for stories of crumbling corpses, cursed churches and casual cannibalism. This one’s not for the faint-hearted.

  • Duration: Approx 2 hours
  • Time: 11am
  • Price: £15 per person

Westminster: City of Sovereigns

If the City of London is traditionally the city of the people, then Westminster is the city of kings and queens. Since the last Anglo-Saxon kings made their home on the marshy banks of the Thames, every English monarch has had a residence in Westminster. Join me on a ramble through the royal quarter of London. We’ll hear tales of corrupt kings, kleptomaniac queens, and royal scandals galore!

  • Duration: Approx 2 hours
  • Time: 11am
  • Price: £15 per person
