St. Pancras Railway Station (meet Simon by the National Rail Ticket Office, opposite Starbucks) | Map

Guided by Simon

Like Chaucer's pilgrims to Caunterbury we wende. And what tales Canterbury has to tell. Tales writ in the ancient cathedral towering moodily over the nearby pubs and shops. Tales gleaned from half-timbered, white-washed little houses lining narrow streets. Tales borne by the river Stour swabbling past brilliant flowerbeds and under arching stone bridges. In Canterbury we enter another world... we step into mediaeval history.

And look, the getting there itself – faster than a speeding bullet! – couldn't be more special. We take the Javelin High-Speed Train, the only super high-speed train line in the country. It's whoosh! and we're there. 


We go to Canterbury on Saturday, April 27 and Saturday, July 20. Meet Simon at 8.40 am at St. Pancras Railway Station. Meet him outside the National Rail Ticket Office, opposite Starbucks.

"by far the most impressive series of walks that I have ever encountered are those offered by London Walks"  Travel and Enjoy


If you can't make one of the regularly scheduled, just-turn-up, public Canterbury trips do think about booking one as a private tour. For a singleton or a couple or foursome a private tour is obviously more expensive than going on one of the public tours but they're still good value. Indeed, best value if you compare them with what's on offer in the wider marketplace. And for a reasonably sized group they're superb value – cost you less than going on one of the public outings. If you go private you can have the Canterbury Excursion – or any other London Walk – on a day and at a time that suits your convenience. We'll tailor* it to your wishes and requirements. And – always with private London Walks and tours – we go to great lengths to make sure the guide-walker(s) "fit" is well-nigh perfect. Ring Fiona or Noel or Mary on 020 7624 3978 or email us at and we'll set it up and make it happen for you. A private London Walk – they're good value for an individual or couple and sensational value for a group – makes an ideal group or educational or birthday party or office (team-building) or club outing. Or indeed a fab present – be it a birthday or anniversary or get-to-know-your-new neighbourhood gift or Christmas present or whatever. Merchandise schmerchandise (gift wrapped or not) – but giving someone an experience, now that's special. Memories make us rich.  *So if you want, say, just half of the day – in either Richmond or Hampton Court – no problem, just say the word.
