“The champagne and caviar of London Walks.” The best address in London and a bon vivant of a guide. A patrician promenade through the parallelogram of purses. Pip pipping where Old Masters and old money, Rollers and Rolexes are par for the course. A boulevardier and a bailiwick of butlers, titles and glamour. Hob-nobbing with knobs on it – because Mayfair’s been home to Clive of India, Disraeli, Handel, Florence Nightingale, Jimi Hendrix, Dodi Fayed and the Earl Mountbatten, to name but a few. And that’s before we move in the big artillery – the cartwheeling knickerless American actress and the $10,000,000 casket, for example. Last but certainly not least, Mayfair boasts London’s best village within a village – Shepherd Market, a charming little nest of lanes and alleyways that hasn’t lost a jot of its 18th-century scale and village atmosphere, let alone its raffishness. Guided by Peter or Richard III.

    Just a line to say what a thoroughly enjoyable London Walk the Old Marylebone Walk was today, Saturday 19th March 2022.
    Peter was a great host; entertaining, factual, fun, full of little gems, gossips, facts, delivered in an easy style; ready to answer questions (and set a few himself).
    This was my first walk with London Walks but I have purchased the discount card and booked for Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday this forthcoming week!
    Having just returned to London in my retirement, it is a delightful way to reacquaint myself with a city that I have visited and worked in but not got to know in-depth.
    I look forward to London Walks helping me to achieve further enjoyment from our fabulous capital!

    Great walk with fabulous guide Claire. Two hours just flew by, so many interesting facts about London.
    Thoroughly recommend!

  3. Maureen

    Claire provided a fascinating and entertaining tour of hidden history of Old Mayfair which included links to President Kennedy, Charles Saatchi, Dodi Fayad and Lord Lucan among others. We saw a world class modern representation of the ancient painting The Last Supper in a local church, I think better than the original and which I would never have seen otherwise. Time in London well spent!
