New York Times says: “London Walks puts you into the hands of an expert on the particular area and topic of a tour.”

Guide Aaron says: “I will be showing you one of the most iconic museums of Natural History in the world. We will first take a journey to the centre of the Earth in the museum’s red zone with Rocks, Volcanos, and Earthquakes, followed by looking at the origin of animals over 500 million years ago. Moving into the beautiful Waterhouse building we will find the marine reptiles of Mary Anning and the first Dinosaurs to be described by Palaeontologists. In the grand Hintze Hall we will find Hope the Blue Whale; here and in the Mammal Gallery we will discover how the largest animal ever to inhabit our planet evolved from a dog-like animal with four legs. We will finish by visiting the Darwin Centre to discover how scientists from this museum are still exploring our planet from the rain forests of South East Asia to the world’s deepest oceans to describe new species and increase our understanding of biodiversity on our planet.”
