England has produced many great literary figures and many of them called London home. Join us on one of our Literary walking tours of London with our award-winning guides. Our guided tours cover London’s most famous writers, poets, playwrights and characters.
From a Bloomsbury pub walk where you can learn about the likes of Virginia Woolf and the Bloomsbury group, Ted Hughes; George Orwell and many more besides. To dedicated walks for your favourite author or playwright.
These tours are a new way to see some of the best sights. You can get a new appreciation for central London, the British Museum, Kings cross, Shakespeare’s Globe, the British Library and many more of Londons locations.
Discover the London of your favourite literary figures and celebrate the English language.
We run a ton of private walks. If you want a private Literary Walk – or any other London Walk for that matter – it’s eezy peezy as well. Just give Fiona or Noel a ring on 020 7624 3978 – or email us at[email protected] – and we’ll set it up for you and make it happen.
