London Walks suspended (briefly) but we’re still guiding – Podcasts and Virtual Tours Online!

LONDON WALKS VIRTUAL TOURS ONLINE

Date post added: 14th April 2020

Ahhhhhhhhhh… How good it is to get this said, get these going.

London Walks is back. Back guiding. Back walking. Back exploring London. Doing what we do. Doing it in a somewhat different form than “before” – but doing it all the same. Doing these first ones – and this will build – thanks to the pathfinding, the genius and heroic efforts of star guide, Adam Scott.

Ok, that’s enough lead-in, enough drum roll. Here. We. Go.
