The ancient streets of London are overflowing with history. Join me on a meandering walk from St Paul’s Cathedral to London Bridge as I introduce you to some hidden corners of the city, and the fascinating characters who have made London their home over the centuries. Stroll in the footsteps of the famous ( Samuel Pepys, Queen Elizabeth 1, William Shakespeare and Christopher Wren all put in an appearance) and meet the everyday folk, (Roman centurions, groundlings, gossip mongers, mudlarks, ferrymen, lace sellers and Winchester geese, to name just a few) who walked these streets before us. This is a lighthearted tour with plenty of quirky, human stories. Where Shakespeare purchase his picadills (and what exactly is a picadill?). When did an elephant walk on the Thames? And why did Samuel Pepys hide his cheese? All this, and more, will be revealed!
Il tuo host
I have lived in London for my entire adult life, and having studied English Literature and History at university, it has always been a thrill to me when I have discovered places that have connections with London’s fascinating history and the stories of the people who lived there. I am looking forward to sharing some of these stories with you.

Dove ti troverai
This is a lovely walk from St Paul's Cathedral to London Bridge (and Borough Market), weaving through the fascinating backstreets of the city, viewing London’s changing landscape as we cross the Thames, and wander around both the north and south banks of the river. Both the start and finish of this tour are adjacent to Underground stations.

Requisiti degli ospiti
Possono partecipare fino a 6 ospiti di almeno 14 anni. This is a fairly long stroll, but taken at a reasonable pace with many stops along the way, as I pause to describe the historic sights we are experiencing. You certainly don't have to be super-fit…
I limit the number of participants on each tour to 6, to help everyone get the best possible ‘small group’ experience. I am happy to arrange private tours for individuals, families or groups, and for a private tour can adapt the route to suit abilities and/or younger children.
