Walks


1) Soho alternative

There's more to London's Soho than its sleazy reputation. Come and find out more about this fascinating quarter of London: a home to artists and bohemians, a haven for immigrants, a criminal underworld, host to the alternative club scene for generations and still the centre of the film and fashion industry! Two hour and a half hours stroll, starting in Soho Square.

2) Theatre land Ghost Walk

Forget Jack the Ripper! London's Theatre land has more reported sightings of ghostly apparitions, thespian hauntings and sheer bloody murder than anything the East End has to offer. Come and walk in the "limelight" with me from Drury Lane to St. Martins and discover the nastiness that lies behind the neon lights.

3) Westminster without the whiplash

Londoners love to shop and the West End of London is shopping heaven. But are you overwhelmed by Oxford Street, lost in Liberty's and harassed in Hamley's? Escape the main drag and find out more about the area of Westminster that lies just to the south of the Regents Street crowds. For it is in the streets of St. James' and Whitehall, that religion, government, politics and royalty all jostle for position to create one of the most famous cityscapes in the World. Two hours walking starting at Piccadilly Circus and ending at Westminster Abbey

4) Hidden London

Why follow the herd when you can "boldly go" where very few Londoners, let alone tourists, have ever gone before! London keeps many of its treasures well hidden. Did you know that there are the remains of an 18th century prison cell and the crypt of a 12th century church beneath the streets of the City of London? Or that there is a wonderful secret garden near the Tower of London that is rarely visited? The City also has a 1,800 year old Roman bastion hidden from view, a romantic tower fit for Rapunzel within feet of some horses stables and even a 12th century interior that has starred in at least five feature films! A two hours walk in the City of London, starting at the Museum of London

Calling all Harry Potter Fans!

You′ve gone on the Studio Tour, you′ve read the books and seen all the films, but did you know that many of the scenes from the films were shot in London and that London locations inspired JK Rowling herself?

Come on my tour of Harry Potter film locations and be inspired to watch the films all over again! Come prepared to travel by underground to the different sites, unless of course you have your broomstick handy or maybe even some "floo powder”........................
