Behold the City of London – let there be light* on 2000 years of history from ancient Roman beginnings to the modern Square Mile.

And lurking at every turn sinners great and small whose sinful acts birthed and then nourished this City on the Thames.

Come join me, Ulrike**…

on a journey to discover how Lust, Avarice, Sloth, Envy, Gluttony, Anger and Pride, the Seven Deadly Sins, both corrupted the people of London and drove its history.

From riots to orgies, excess to industrial espionage, high modern buildings to hidden alleyways, losing inhibitions to losing one’s head and many more tales of the unknown.

In between each of the Seven Deadly Sins another story of lust, that binds the walk together.

At the end, outside the Tower of London, we will meet the biggest sinner of all, and I can promise you, it won’t be the person you’re thinking of…

Join me on my sinful walk through the City of London from one fortress to another, from the Bank of England to the Tower of London with lots of entertainment in between!

Tales writ in London’s lowering clouds and brazen buildings and angry skies and phallic skyline and murky river.

*Shine a light especially on its darker corners, its dirty little (and not so little) secrets. Its seven deadly sins.

  1. Mollie and Holly

    As two girls who live in London – We loved this tour so much, learned so much, had great laughs and a wonderful afternoon. Ulrike was a fantastic guide and we hope to join her on another one of her tours in the near future.

  2. Sheila Holt

    We thoroughly enjoyed this walk and Ulrike was excellent in every respect, well informed, interesting and amusing. The 2 hours passed too quickly – we would recommend Ulrike and this walk unreservedly.
    Go on, treat yourselves to 2 hours of intelligent and fascinating conversation/discussion/information – you won’t regret it!

    Humorous, informative and fun to listen to. Not sure if I agree that Samuel Pepys was the worst “Lust” offender that London had on offer (a few more recent and more prolific residents of London come to mind). This tour is highly recommended for people who have seen all of the usual sights and wish to discover some hard to spot locations.

  9. Beth Fenner

    Ulrike was a fantastic guide who knew so many facts and made the walk really fun! I have to say it was the clearest information I have received on a walk – never too far to hear what Ulrike was saying. You also get to walk around some hidden areas if London you may not stumble upon yourself! Highly recommend.
