The London Wall Walk

(1 customer review)

Tower Hill underground station, London (meet by the Tower Hill Tram coffee stand)

Guided by Isobel

Short read: “If walls could speak…”

Long read: This wall does. Speak. When you learn how to “read” it, that is. Why and where and when and how it was built? What its different courses and strata are? They tell us as much about a city and its history as the rings of a tree speak of its age and what it’s lived through. And to ask – and answer – other questions is to open up still more vistas. Where’s the stone from? How’d they get it here? What does a mighty stone wall girdling a quarry-less city proclaim about it – and the people who built it? Wall (including that “unknown” bit – unknown because it’s underground), gates, fort, extramural London, the works – to walk it is to get a unique feel for London and its history. I walked the London Wall – that’s some stuff to strut. N.B. the walk takes about two hours and ends at St. Botolph’s Aldersgate, a five-minute walk from St. Paul’s Tube.

Londinium to Lundenwic to Lundunburgh. Guided by prize-winning Blue Badge Guide Isobel.


The London Wall Walk takes place at TBA

To go on the London Wall Walk meet Isobel just outside the exit of Tower Hill Tube. Meet by the Tower Hill Tram coffee stall.


“London’s best city tours” The Telegraph

“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

“London Walks was the first – and is the best – of the walking tour firms”  Fodor’s Great Britain


If you can’t make the regularly scheduled, just-turn-up, public London Wall walk do think about booking one as a private tour. If you go private you can have the London Wall walk – 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 with private London Walks and tours – 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 [email protected] and we’ll set it up and make it happen for you. A private London Walk – they’re good value for an individual or couple and sensational value for a group – makes an ideal group or educational or birthday party or office (team-building) or club outing. Or indeed a fab present – be it a birthday or anniversary or get-to-know-your-new neighbourhood gift 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. Kathy

    This walk – and I’ve done a lot of London Walks – is special. It covers the vast London history beginning with Rome in an easy stroll through the not so famous parts of the City of London. Connecting place names with historic periods, intersecting modern life with ancient. Isobel’s enthusiasm and vast knowledge of the City makes this walk. If I were to recommend one walk for someone with a short time in London, I would hope this one was on offer.
