Guided by Isobel

Streets Ahead! More trailblazing by the best urban walking tour guides on the planet. In Focus walks are an extremely detailed look – "what I love about London Walks is the degree of granularity you get" (as that American visitor memorably put it) – at the most famous streets and squares of London. And their tributaries. This In Focus walk explores The Cut, past and present. It's quintessential London, The Cut. Market. London's best-loved old theatre. Its much younger, er, cutting edge, experimental namesake. The rules of boxing. Marsh. Real Londoners, past and present. Place names that are talking ghosts. Good, untouristicated restaurants and cafes. There's cockney self-respect and quiet dignity and that inimitable, utterly admirable, rub-along-together London quality. It's got a buzz. It's bracing. It's honest to goodness. Works. Recommended. This one's been created and is curated (guided) by our South London specialist (and local of course), star Blue Badge Guide, Isobel. 

IN FOCUS: THE CUT – THE PRACTICALS

The In Focus: The Cut walk takes place at 2.30 pm on Sunday, February 24. Meet Isobel just outside SouthwarkTube

LONDON WALKS REVIEWS 

"London Walks was the first – and is the best – of the walking tour firms" Fodor's Great Britain

"the unfailingly fascinating London Walks... If you can't find one [of their tours] that captures your fancy, maybe you really are tired of life." San Francisco Chronicle

"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 WALKS PRIVATE WALKS

If you can't make the regularly scheduled, just-turn-up, public In Focus: The Cut walk do think about booking one as a private tour.* For a singleton or a couple or foursome, a private tour is 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 amazing value – cost you less than going on one of the public outings. If you go private you can have the In Focus: The Cut walk – 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. Ring Fiona or Noel or Mary on 020 7624 3978 or email us at privatewalks@walks.com and we'll set it up and make it happen for you. A private London Walk makes an ideal group or educational or birthday party or office (team-building) or club outing.

GIVE THE GIFT OF LONDON WALKS

A private London Walk makes a fab gift – be it a birthday or anniversary or Christmas present or whatever. Merchandise schmerchandise (gift wrapped or not) – but giving someone an experience, now that's special. Memories make us rich.
