A 5* rated live, outdoor, 3-D, shoe-leather-on-pavement London Walk.

Our route: the Tower of London (Traitors’ Gate) to the Mansion House.

Mansion House, part of our Revolting London Walking Tour

Our dramatis personae: 20 centuries of them. They range from Boudicca (Boadacea) who put London to the torch 2000 years ago (the first Great Fire of London) to the Extinction Rebellion demonstrators who recently (2019) “torched” the Chancellor’s Mansion House speech.

Tower of London, part of our Revolting London Walking Tour

Enroute: we meet three Tudor Queens beheaded in the Tower, Irish bombers, theArchbishop of Canterbury lynched by Revolting Peasants, the slave trader who switched sides, the Scottish nobleman who laughed his head off (literally laughed it off).

The George and Vulture Pub, part of our Revolting London Walking Tour
In sum: that’s just a sprinkling of said encounters. Two hours on we’ll have met any number of extraordinary characters whose lives and deaths are etched on, above and beneath the streets and alleys of London.

And as long as we’re at it, here’s a visual of our meeting point just outside the exit of Tower Hill  Tube.

  1. Casey

    My daughter and I take a different walk each time we visit London and they are all excellent. The “Revolting” tour with Ian as our guide was especially outstanding Even though I have been to London many times I learned much history from this tour and saw many new places to follow up with again on future trips. Ian is very knowledgeable, and engages with a terrific sense of humor to his “ audience . The fact that he donates proceeds from the tour to charity only adds to the excellence of the walk. Highly recommend

  5. Jane

    An excellent walk with David discovering Revolting London among hidden nooks and alleyways. His knowledge is very impressive and imparted with humour, so that we barely noticed the damp weather. Would definitely recommend.

  6. Glasha

    David was an excellent guide, two hours went by very fast even though the weather was miserable. Even kids in the group listened attentively and never complained about being cold and wet.


    Very interesting! David was an excellent guide who illuminated the history with details, stories and all delivered with humour. We really enjoyed the day.
