The London Walks Films
Never been on a London Walk? Fancy a preview? 
 
(Wrote this page 18 months ago or so – here's the Late Breaking News! We've just put up a little film of a Harry Potter London Walk. A click here will whisk you there.)
 
Check out these "trailers". (If you don't want to "read in" – just scroll down, the films are below this prefatory material. Well, not the Ghost Walk film ["starring" the Duke of Darkness himself, the incomparable Shaughan, of course]. It'll go up here shortly. But in the meantime you can see it here [on youtube]. It's simply stunning: guide, subject, audience, setting, incidental stuff, music, the camerawork, etc. - all the planets are in alignment. More proof of the "London Walks does it best" pudding!)
 
Update to the above: we've just added to the collection! We've now got a little video of our Wednesday Oxford & The Cotswolds trip. And another one of our Just the Cotswolds trip (which runs on a handful of Midsummer Sundays). The Oxford & the Cotswolds video can be seen here (on Youtube). And the Just the Cotswolds video can be seen here (on Youtube). And the newest one – the video of our Bath Tour – can be seen here.
 
And that's by way of saying, we've made (well, Jon Klein, the filmaker has "made" them) a handful of wonderful little films about a sampling of London Walks.* And – embarras de richesse – Jon's done the same for four of our Day Trips from Londons: The Cambridge Tour, The Oxford & the Cotswolds Tour, The Bath Tour and The Cotswolds Tour. And you read it here first: there are more London Walks films in the pipeline! 
 
The films give you a very good idea of what it's like to go on a London Walk – or on our Day Trips.  How it works, how you meet up with the guide, what happens, etc. You can try before you buy, as it were.
 
And while none is needed the films are also yet more "corroboration". They're the logical next step after the Don't Just Take It From Us page, etc. (Some "etc." of course, comprising as it does the two biggest awards going – Best Tourism Experience in London and Best Tourism Experience in England – let alone the "word-of-mouth" that's everywhere.) In short, thanks to the films, you don't even need to Take It From "Them" ("them" being every major guidebook, newspaper, magazine, Visit London, Enjoy England, the general public, etc.). Now you can see for yourself why London Walks is Streets Ahead! To paraphrase that Clinton campaign trope, It's the guides, folks! And I hasten to add, there's nothing new there, that's always been the London Walks cornerstone.
 
 
And in the event of a "Houston, we've got a problem" occurrence – the which is flagged by big black No Service Available labels where the film title page should be – here's the backup. In the shape of youtube links. Said links will hold the fort while the techies are getting the problem to dematerialise!
 
 
                   The Old Westminster Walk


                   The Jack the Ripper Walk

Teachers and other educators will be especially interested to know that Jon's also created a little "sidebar" - a short, accompanying Jack the Ripper film - from some of the outtakes. Called Jack the Ripper Teaches History, it's a very interesting interview with the man who is "internationally recognised as the world's leading expert on Jack the Ripper": Donald Rumbelow, who of course "stars" in the main film. The "sidebar" film can be seen here.


    Away We Go - The Cambridge Explorer Day

 
And here's a short accompanying film showing the practical details, the logistics of the trip. Meeting up with the guide, the travel arrangements, etc.

               Finally...The Greenwich Walk
