Guided by Simon

T'was a few nights before Christmas and all through the streets the walkers got ready for this Christmas pre-eve treat. The walk on this eve unwraps London at its most inviting. Let alone most historic. Our town turned out in its sparkling best – seasonally festive, all dolled up for the Big Day. And part of the weave, part of the walk – lots of Christmas connections and seasonal traditions. And as per normal with London Walks, the secret ingredient(s) – the see the unseen magic. The "didn't know that, never would have seen that" trimmings. Let alone lashings of conviviality and general hail-fellow-well-met-ness! All of which will of course set you up very nicely in the plenty-to-talk-about-over-the-turkey-next-XXXXXX lists. So, in sum, since it's the weekend Eve before that Eve it's streets laced with lights and twinkling with cheer and (just maybe) sequined with snow. (You don't get more Christmas Card Christmas than London when she's donned the ermine!) But to make sure we keep Jack – and his frost – at bay, Simon will put in at a couple of fine old hostelries for mulled wine or hot cider or ale or sherry. But, hey, it's Christmas – no excuses needed to be merry, get merry, keep merry, make merry!

LONDON WALKS PRIVATE WALKS

If you can't make the regularly scheduled, just-turn-up, public Christmas Lights & Seasonal Cheer Pub Walk do think about booking one as a private tour. If you go private you can have the Christmas Lights & Seasonal Cheer Pub Walk – or any other London Walk – on a day and at a time that suits your convenience. We'll tailor it to your requirements. Ring Fiona or Noel or Mary on 020 7624 3978 or email us at london@walks.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.

GIVE THE GIFT OF LONDON WALKS

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.
