Bedlam, bursting bodies & beheaded virgins… 

Here’s guide Sue talking about the walk. Do have a listen.

A jolt of the pure stuff. The best sort of London Walks alchemy. What you conjure up when you mix off-the-beaten-path-London with history that would do the Sorcerer’s Apprentice proud. Here be knights, nuns and notoriety: an urban enchanted forest in the expurgated version; Hieronymous Bosch’s Garden of Earthly Delights in the unexpurgated. Fasten your seatbelts. Watch the pageant unfurl. Gentle monks and chivalric knights (dear me, how the mighty fell). A bursting royal body; a noble head in a biscuit tin; an annual ready-meal delivered to an open coffin; 1100 beheaded virgins; nuns so outrageous all of Europe was shocked; a place of lunacy where the bones of incarcerated re-appear at regular intervals. OMG. Guided by Sue.


The meeting point is just outside the exit of Tower Hill Tube. Meet by the Tower Hill Tram Coffee Stall.  N.B. the walk ends at Liverpool Street Station.  


“London’s best city tours” The Telegraph

“I joined the Knights, Nuns and Notoriety Tour… Our guide was Sue…*There is history on every corner, and Sue’s knowledge is exceptional. She asks questions on the way and includes everybody. The walk was so good, I’m going on The Ripper tour tonight with one of the foremost authorities on The Ripper taking the walk (Donald Rumbelow). An easy 5 stars, and something you can easily slip into the schedule.” Losrobos (Gerroa, Australia).


If you can’t make any of the regularly scheduled, just-turn-up, public Bizarre London walks do think about booking one as a private tour. If you go private you can have the Bizare London walk – or any other London Walk – on a day and at a time that suits your convenience. We’ll tailor it to your requirements. Ring Fiona or Noel or Mary on 020 7624 3978 or email us at [email protected] and we’ll set it up and make it happen for you. A private London Walk – they’re good value for an individual or couple and sensational value for a group – makes an ideal group or educational or birthday party or office (team-building) or club outing.


A private London Walk makes a very special, thoughtful, and unique gift. Be it a birthday or anniversary or graduation or Christmas present or whatever. Merchandise schmerchandise (gift wrapped or not) – but giving someone an experience, now that’s special. Memories make us rich.


It’s not even close
