COVID – WE HAVE DROPPED SOME WALKS, REROUTED OTHERS, CHANGED STOPPING PLACES WHERE NECESSARY and CHANGED START AND/OR FINISH POINTS IF NEED BE. WE HAVE ALSO INVENTED NEW WALKS. So all our walks are now particularly conducive to social distancing, both whilst walking and when stopping to listen to our guide. Sadly our some of most popular walks such as Talented Women in the National Portrait Gallery, and Swinging 60’s Soho, have had to go as it would be impossible to do these whilst maintaining good social distancing. Our Feminist ‘the Five’ Jack the Ripper Victims walk had to go too. But there is a spacious Whitechapel Crime walk in a different part of Whitechapel which includes a bit of Jack the Ripper social history. We have also completely rerouted Georgian London away from beautiful but busy, tight Bloomsbury to beautiful uncrowded, spacious Georgian areas such as the Inns of Court. Our Intriguing Alleys walk has been rerouted and renamed our Intriguing Spacious Quiet Spots walk. Our new Controversial Statues walk heads through parts of Lambeth and Westminster well away from crowds, and we view a couple of statues from a slight distance to ensure this. And we have lots of new walks that take in rivers, canals, parks, wetlands, basins, squares, you name it.
And in the past we have tended to start and finish walks at underground or railway stations, because these are easy places to meet. We can still do this, but if you would rather start and/or finish in other places, we can do this very easily. We’ll make arrangements with you when we swop emails whilst taking the bookings. And in the East End we can easily swop an underground station for a DLR station if you wish.
Below are private group, tailor-made walking tours to suit your requirements. Take a look and just let us know which one you fancy, and when you wish to do it. Any start time, any duration. Or we can tailor-make a unique one-off walk specifically for you, for example picking up at your place of work and dropping you at a restaurant or at an event, or whatever.

37 Other Walks we can tailor-make for you
Any of our walks can be tailor-made for children and teenagers. And for school parties we’re happy to do a risk assessment walk with teachers beforehand. So whether it’s GCSE students doing a module on the Suffragettes, Elizabethan Theatre or Jack the Ripper, or parents who want to show their kids some Foundling & Peter Pan history in Bloomsbury we can provide whatever level of walk is required.
Wheelchair Friendly Walks
All of the above walks are available for wheelchair access. See London Tours for Wheelchair Access.
