London Virtual Tours

London Walks is back. Back guiding. Back walking. Back exploring London. Doing what we do. Doing it both live and in a somewhat different form than “before.”

2020 put us, London Walks guides to the test but neither the pandemic nor the lockdown stopped 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.
