Eccentric London

Embankment underground station, London (Villiers Street exit)

Guided by Kim

Short version. London is stranger than fiction.  

Long version. A little something for the connoisseur. A collector's piece of a walk. A walk that'll change the way you see central London. A walk that teems with unexpected delights, odd places and passing strange things and people. You'll crack the mystery of the Trafalgar Square lions (and a royal statue), learn how an acrobat risked everything at St. Martin's in the Fields, and whether the spinning dome at the top of the Coliseum actually spins. Orson Welles and Sir John Betjeman put in an appearance, as does the most eccentric bookshop in the world. Enjoy! And afterwards you can spoil yourself with cream cakes and tea.


Eccentric London – London is Stranger than Fiction takes place at 10.45 am on Sxxxxxxxx. The meeting point is just outside the river exit of Embankment Tube.

Eccentric London – London is Stranger than Fiction is guided by Alison.

If you can't make any of the regularly scheduled, just-turn-up, public Eccentric London walks do think about booking one as a private tour. If you go private you can have the Eccentric 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. And – always with private London Walks and tours – we go to great lengths to make sure the guide-walker(s) "fit" is well-nigh perfect. 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. Or indeed a fab present – be it a birthday or anniversary or get-to-know-your-new neighbourhood gift or Christmas present or whatever. Merchandise schmerchandise (gift wrapped or not) – but giving someone an experience, now that's special. Memories make us rich.
