Monument Tube, Fish Street Hill exit | Map
Guided by Shaughan
Short description: pretty paths less travelled...
Long description: A distillation of a storied guide's many years' experience probing the hidden places and forgotten nooks of the world's most elusive city. Exploring secret London – up creeping lanes, round out-of-the-way corners, past veiled islands of green – Shaughan's at his inimitable best. As the New York Times put it, the walk is "a highly entertaining... blend of historical commentary and bizarre anecdote laced with mildly scurrilous gossip about past and present celebrities and defunct royals." In such places and with such a guide, the past becomes our present.
The Hidden London Walk takes place at 11 am every Monday morning and every Friday morning. Meet Shaughan just outside the Fish Street Hill exit of MonumentTube. N.B. the walk ends in Fleet Street, a two-minute walk from Blackfriars Tube.
"If you want to know London better, if you want to learn some things about the world's most cosmopolitan city that most people who spend their lives there never learn... I can think of no better investment than London Walks" The New York Times
"London's best city tours" The Telegraph
"Even jaded Londoners find these London Walks a source of astonishing gems of information about the city in which they live." Daily Mail, Top London Treats
If you can't make one of the regularly scheduled, just-turn-up, public Hidden London walks do think about booking one as a private tour. If you go private you can have the Hidden London walk – or any other London Walk – on a day and at a time that suits your convenience. We'll tailor it to your 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 email@example.com 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.
A private London Walk makes 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.
