Virtual Tours of London – Bring a London Walk Home

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

2020 (and early 2021) put us – London Walks guides – to the test but neither the Coronavirus nor the lockdown stopped us doing our thing: guiding London, showing it to people, showing them how to read it. The virtual walking tours available here are the best way to visit London from the comfort of your living room. We take you much further – drill down much deeper – than a simple, one-dimensional Google street view. Best of all it’s seeing London through the eyes of Londoners who are friendly, elite, world-class local guides. With our new live virtual tours, out tour guides have been able to give the London travel experience to people from all around the world in the midst of a pandemic and social distancing.

So let’s roll. Let’s visit London, the hotspots and beyond – from the crown jewels at the Tower of London to 10 Downing Street, the Houses of Parliament and Big Ben. From the Queen’s London residence, Buckingham Palace, to the Royal Albert Hall. Explore London – cruise the Thames from Tower Bridge to Westminster and Greenwich, skylark on the London Eye. Do a tour of the National Gallery and the British Museum and Natural History Museum. Hidden gems and history aplenty await us.

To go on a London Walks Virtual Guided Tour just click through to the Eventbrite link and register. Cometh the hour we’ll all gather round the Zoom ‘fireplace’ and off we’ll go. Into London at its fascinating best. An online tour lasts about an hour. It’s interactive, there’s Q & A afterward and, more often than not, some socialising (people from all over the world are round that ‘online fireplace’).

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