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.

2020 has put us, London Walks guides to the test but neither the pandemic nor the lockdown is going to stop us doing from doing our thing – guiding London. The virtual walking tours available here are the best way to visit London from the comfort of your living room. We will take you further than the simple Google street view, we will show you London though Londoner’s eyes and explore the hidden gems and history London has to offer.

To attend any of these, please click through to the Eventbrite link where you will be able to register. The ‘walk’ will then take place using Zoom and will last around 1 hour.

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



 


WEDNESDAY TOURS

1. REGENCY LONDON – HOW THE WEST END WAS WON VIRTUAL TOUR

My (David’s) say: “This one is a tour de force. Charlie gave a preview of it to a group of professional guides, the most exacting audience in the world for one of these. Every last one of us was stunned. We all “knew” about Nash and Regent Street… but it turns out we didn’t “know” it because we hadn’t “seen it.” We have now. And we sure do know it now. Charlie’s made full use of the technical reach and range and possibilities of this medium. It’s a stunning presentation – left a dozen savvy, top-flight, elite guides with their jaws hanging open at what they’d just seen. And indeed learned. Changes the way you see central London.”

Join Westminster guide Charlie Forman to explore the West End of London that was laid out for us exactly 200 years ago by the architect John Nash. This virtual journey shows why he should really be called a ‘master planner’. It reveals the city which the Prince Regent thought would ‘eclipse Napoleon’s Paris’. Zooming up its great processional way from St James’s to Regent’s Park we will enjoy Nash’s great vistas and design ideas while understanding how his division of the ‘nobility’ from the ‘trading part of the community’ is still apparent today. It didn’t all go to plan. The king knocked down his centrepiece; he struggled to get the hay market out of the Haymarket and his most elegant shopping colonnade became a place to buy sex. Yet his astonishing legacy is deeper and more long-lasting than is recognised. To understand the way London works, this is essential viewing.

Regency London – How the West End Was Won takes place at 6 pm (British Summer Time) on Wednesday, July 8

2. SCANDALOUS MAYFAIR VIRTUAL TOUR

For over 300 years Mayfair has been the most magnificent of addresses.

It has also been a circus of astonishing behaviour.

Illegal marriages, corrupt politicians, dead rock stars, murderous earls, exiled royalty, unjust imprisonment, adulterous Americans, assassinated spys: Mayfair really does have it all!

Strap yourself in. This is the UltraMax of Virtual Tours: veil after veil of outrageousness coming off the poshest of the posh. Lot of fun.

The Scandalous Mayfair Virtual Tour – created and guided by the magnificent Russell – will take place at 7 pm (British Summer Time) on Wednesday, July 15

THURSDAY TOURS

1. SIGHTS & SECRETS OF KENSINGTON

“London specialises in hiding the best of itself.” Kensington – Royal Kensington, Village Kensington, Green Kensington, Artistic Kensington, Trendy Kensington, Literary Kensington, Traditional Kensington, Cosmopolitan Kensington, Culinary Kensington, Secret Kensington, Musical Kensington – is a case in point. Yes, Kensington is Kensington Palace and Millionaires’ Row and Kensington Gardens and the Royal Albert Hall and Kensington Square. But it’s also soigne little lanes and cobblestoned mews, and sensational roof gardens and tiny galleries and wonderful little shops and antiques showrooms and London’s most exquisite cul de sac and fine old pubs and cottages and centuries of architectural flavours and no end of curiosities. It’s London’s smallest borough. And its wealthiest. Indeed it’s the wealthiest district. Why so? How did that come about? Well, that’s one of the big questions this tour answers: what is it about Kensington? By the end of the tour the gold sovereign will have dropped, the pieces will fit together, you’ll understand what it is about Kensington!

Q. Is Kensington Palace like Buckingham Palace?

A. Are you asking does it have a throne room and a white drawing-room, etc.? No, not at all. Its particulars – its features – are better, much older, much more interesting, much more tasteful. And you gotta love the way we see it: from up above, hang-glider height, looking down on it.

THE NATIONAL PORTRAIT GALLERY – THE VIRTUAL TOUR

Simon’s National Portrait Gallery Tour takes place at 7 pm on Friday, July 10 and at 7 pm on Friday, July 24. N.B. 7 pm British Summer Time

The National Portrait Gallery in London holds the world’s most extensive collection of portraits. The gallery is currently closed for 3 years until Spring 2023 as it commences its biggest redevelopment since the current building opened in 1896. But that needn’t stop you from exploring this wonderful collection! As part of our ongoing programme of virtual tours, London Walks is now bringing you an online virtual tour of some of the highlights of the collection!

Starting with the Tudors, we travel through 500 years of British history, meeting the incredible diversity of men and women who have helped to shape the nation. Artists & actors, monarchs & mistresses, scientists & statesmen, politicians & pioneers -there is something for everyone at the National Portrait Gallery. We’ll examine up close and personal how subjects and styles have evolved over the centuries and discover the stories behind the faces of some of our great (and occasionally not so good) Britons!

———————————————————————————


1. THE KINKS IN LONDON – the Friday Music Festival

The Friday Music Festival kicks off with the Kinks in London. It takes place at 7 pm (British Summer Time) on Friday, July 10. 

Have a listen. On this podcast you’ll meet your guide (Adam) and get a really good idea of the calibre of the guiding. The podcast is by Adam. I think it’s the best podcast we’ve ever done. It’s 9 minutes of sustained brilliance about the Kinks and one song in particular.

The Kinks. To their devoted fans they’re better than The Beatles. For others they’re merely a 60s curiosity. It’s the story of the warring Davies brothers Ray & Dave and the highs and lows of the most singular career in the history of rock’n’roll. We’ll look at their North London origins, discuss Dave Davies’s contribution to guitar-playing history, look at Ray Davies’s songwriting legacy – in terms of the London landscape we’ll visit famous record sleeve locations, venues, studios and the music business district offices where fortunes were lost and swindled away. Going a little further afield we will also look at the infamous night when the Kinks’ drummer Mick Avory almost murdered Dave – guitarist-icide! – and along the way we may even run into a serial killer…

As usual Adam’s music tour will be packed with trivia, history, maps and LIVE music.

The Kinks in London Virtual Tour acts as a curtain-raiser to the socially distanced, live performance, out-in-London, jiving, feet-on-the-ground, seriously limited numbers (five, one for each member of the Kinks in the John Gosling era!), actual, real socially distanced, limited numbers WALKING TOUR of The Kinks In London which takes place on Sunday 12th July at 11 am.

3. PINK FLOYD IN LONDON – the Friday Music Festival

Pink Floyd in London – created and guided by Adam – takes place at 7 pm (British Summer Time) on Friday, July 24

One of the world’s biggest bands – their 1973 opus Dark Side Of The Moon has sold in excess of 45 million copies worldwide.

On this virtual tour we will discover the origins of one of history’s biggest bands – Pink Floyd. It’s a virtual tour for fans AND newbies. Architecture students Roger Waters, Nick Mason & Richard Wright met at Regent Street Polytechnic in 1963 and were joined in ’64 by charismatic painter & songwriter Syd Barrett. David Gilmour (an old Cambridge friend of both Barrett & Waters) replaced Syd –we’ll deal with the whys and wherefores of Syd’s leaving the band – and, with Waters as principal writer, they went on to sell millions of records over a period of 15 years of groundbreaking rock music followed by 20+ years of very public artistic differences.

Five decades on, Floyd records still sell, new Sydologists join the cult every year and the debate rages on: Waters or Gilmour: which side are you on?

3. SPIES AND SPYMASTERS OF LONDON – A VIRTUAL TOUR IN FACT AND FICTION

St James’s and Mayfair were at the heart of London’s murky world of espionage. This tour explores the area as it was from the beginning of the 20th Century to the 1960s. We look at the origins of the Secret Service Bureau in 1909, the clubs that were at the heart of the intelligence recruiting and networking, the buildings, both vanished and surviving, which gave birth to some of the most remarkable operations ever devised, and which housed both dedicated officers and remarkable traitors. The place where Anthony Blunt had a narrow escape from exposure as a Soviet agent.  The square where Donald Maclean found his ‘shadows’ a little too close for comfort.  The fine old office which housed wartime departments of the British Secret Intelligence Service alongside their US counterparts the Office of Strategic Services. The hotel where SOE heroine Nancy Wake enjoyed ‘a bloody good drink’. Ian Fleming’s wartime haunts and the club where James Bond played a nerve-wracking game of bridge at M’s request. Somerset Maugham, who was not allowed to tell, even as fiction, all he did in the First World War. David Niven on his way to MI5. And who else but John Le Carré’s immortal George Smiley, always just around the corner. Created and Guided by Richard IV

Spies & Spymasters takes place at 3 pm (British Summer Time) on the following Sundays: July 19, August 2, August 16 and August 30

THE LONDON AT WAR VIRTUAL TOUR

London at War takes place at TBA on TBA

Bloody but unbowed. London and its people in the dark days of World War II. Battered but unbeaten. Defiant. Determined. Yes, the epithet will ring down across the ages. This was London’s – and Londoners’ – finest hour. This virtual tour takes you back there – gets you close. You’ll take survey – bear witness – to how Londoners were affected by bombs, rationing, the evacuation of most of the children, the all-out, full-on, unfolding horror show. From the grand hotels of the West End to the makeshift shelters in the East End, the tour looks at the social history of the era. As buildings burned and neighbourhoods were destroyed, people came together to support one another, endure, soldier on, do what had to be done, play their part in stemming and turning the tide of fascist barbarism.
