Short listen: Here’s Russell’s podcast about this walk

Long read: Secret Places! Hidden History! Flash! Bang! Lightning! City of London Highlights Tour! Star Power guides. What’s not to like? Grand Tour. Stunning overview. St. Paul’s to the Tower of London. Can’t do better than that for a jumping off point and a final destination. But – whisper it – the getting there is the real fun, because along the way we explore twisty little alleyways and piquant nooks and crannies and a secret stretch of shoreline. Seeing this London is like hearing music you never would have known to listen for. N.B. the walk ends at the Tower of London, right next to Tower Hill Tube.


The Old London Walk takes place at 2.15 pm every* Wednesday. The meeting point is just outside exit 2 of St. Paul’s Tube. The walk is guided by Fiona, Russell or Simon W. N.B. the walk ends near the Tower of London and Tower Hill Tube.  *Except Dec. 25


“If you want to know London better, if you want to learn some things about the world’s most cosmopolitan city that most people who spend their lives there never learn… I can think of no better investment than London Walks” The New York Times

“London’s best walking tours”  Travel & Leisure

“Even jaded Londoners find these London Walks a source of astonishing gems of information about the city in which they live.”  Daily Mail, Top London Treats


If you can’t make the regularly scheduled, just-turn-up, public Old London walk do think about booking one as a private tour. If you go private you can have Old London – 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  – 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  privatewalks@walks.com and we’ll set it up and make it happen for you. A private London Walk is good value for an individual or couple and sensational value for a group. And the clincher: a private London Walk makes an ideal group or educational or birthday party or office (team-building) or club outing.


A private London Walk makes a very special, indeed, unique gift – be it a birthday or anniversary 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

  1. Sue Nice

    Very interesting and informative walk with Fiona. We visited places that we didn’t know existed, learnt lots of fascinating history and had a very enjoyable walk.

  2. Miranda Chalk

    What an absolutely fascinating couple of hours. Simon is a terrific guide, skilfully delivering a well-judged amount of information that leaves you feeling that at last you know a little of all the layers that make up the history of the City. And keen to find out more.
    We loved what he told us about the ancient (and modern!) parts of the City we visited, adding a very useful explanation of how the City is run.
    Thanks Simon – I will be signing up for more walks.
