KENSINGTON VIRTUAL TOUR

Click here to go on the Kensington Virtual Tour

What you need to know

Where? 1. On your screen (wherever you are: London, New York, Sidney, California, Brighton, Berlin, Seville, Chiangmai, etc.). In short,  in the comfort of your own home (we guarantee you – you will not be rained on). 2. In the village of David’s heart’s content: kick-ass, kingly, kooky Kensington

Who? David – ‘the Seigneur of this favoured realm’* – is the doyen of London walking tour guides. This is his Kensington. *London Walks.

Who else? VIPs and characters and personages (royal and otherwise) aplenty. Denizens, patrons, residents and “left their markers on” the “Royal Village”. And you. And your fellow walkers.

What? A guided Virtual Reality Tour of Royal Kensington. You will be shown it. Shown round. Shown places. Shown things. You will hear the story. You will “meet” a lot of the principals. You will be taken there. You will return having undergone a very special experience. Anything else? Yes, the Tour is interactive. You will be able to interact with David and your fellow walkers – ask questions, make comments, etc.

Why? By popular demand. And because it’s a Top Ten. (Explanation: there are 500 different London Walks. This is one of the Top Ten of the 500.)

How long does it last? About an hour.

How: The wonders of the Internet. In a word, Zoom.

Do I have to book? Yes.

Why do I have to book? Because we restrict the number of participants to 20. It is not a herd experience. We want to get the comfort level of the group right. Get some group chemistry, get people meeting and interacting with their fellow group members (if they want t0), get some group intimacy. For that, a maximum of 20 is ideal.

Reviews

“Best tour EVER!!!”  Laurie Crogan, California

“Brilliant walk guided by the very knowledgeable David Tucker. This is a ‘must do’ Virtual Walk’ Christopher John Day

“Loved, loved, loved the Kensington walk with David. Particularly loved the attention to detail and how knowledgeable David is. It’s evident David is a cut above and an accomplished guide with a ready with and bags of infectious enthusiasm. It was a feast for the senses!”  Simplyticketyboo  London, TripAdvisor

“a real treat! As with so many London Walks it takes you into nooks and crannies of this beautiful neighbourhood that I never would have found – or appreciated – on my own…there is no substitute for the wonderful, experienced guides of London Walks.” DBE1205 Philadelphia, PA, TripAdvisor

“Great “walk” to do long distance. Thank you @londonwalksofficial – such a nice alternative to being there!”  travel_food_fun_4_ever  Instagram

“I thoroughly enjoyed David’s excellent virtual tour of Kensington. He had plainly done a huge amount of research…he was an engaging and humorous speaker and 90 minutes went by in the blink of an eye”   Delia P., London, TripAdvisor

How much does it cost? £8 per person. But get this: this Virtual Tour is the most tremendous bargain because if you hold on to your ticket you can go for free on the regularly scheduled Royal Kensington walk – it goes at 2 pm on Thursdays and 2 pm on Saturdays from High Street Kensington Tube – when you are next in London and this wretched pandemic is behind us and we are able to operate the live tour in London. The charge for which is £12. You will get it for free. How do you go wrong with that? It’s a no brainer.

Is it possible to book a private Virtual Kensington Tour? Yes, of course. Just get in touch with us here at London Walks. Email: london@walks.com    Tel. 020 7624 3978

What if I have further questions? Eezy peezy contact David or Mary at London Walks. It’s 18/7 and it’s a real person, a living, breathing human being, not some automated, metallic “voice” presenting you with a series of options, “press this button, press that button” ad nauseum.
