#London Walkers Review London Walks: "I have recommended London Walks to all my friends and I will continue to do so"



Mary, Fiona, Maxine & Noel in the London Walks office write… On Mondays & Fridays we'll be sharing reviews of our London Walks written by London Walkers. Firstly, THANKS to all who have written to us down through the years, your kind words are greatly appreciated! Our guides don't solicit these reviews on our tours – we believe that this would be a waste of your time. That's what makes these reviews all the more special – they have been sent to us by genuine London Walkers who have given up their valuable time to drop us a line or two, or leave a comment on travel message boards & websites. Thanks everyone.



This arrives via email from Linda Marquis of Northern Kentucky University, one of the loveliest notes of praise we've ever had …




Over the years, I have used London Walks for both Jack the Ripper (with Simon) and Along the Thames Pub Walk (with David) for my CCSA study group.  Although I will probably be back in London, I will probably not be with students. 

So it is time for me to tell you how wonderful those experiences have been – both for me and for my students.  I have recommended London Walks to all my friends and I will continue to do so. I’ve also recommended you to my colleagues who teach in London. 

In the future, I’ll just be one of those people who shows up for a public walk (which I have also participated in previously). Thank you for excellent vignettes of life in London.  Please keep up this excellent venture.

In & Around #London… Slogans & Messages


Monday is mute on The Daily Constitutional (well, almost mute) – because Monday is the day when we post five images captured in and around London by London Walks Guides and London Walkers.



Collated on a theme or an area, if you've got some great shots of our capital and want to join in send your pictures to the usual address.





Slogans and messages – posted, scrawled, chalked and painted – spotted on a wander through London Town last Tuesday…


A bit of politics on a Highgate lamp post…


Inclusivity in Clerkenwell…


… Exclusivity in Clerkenwell.


Ooh they're ever-so helpful at the East Dulwich Tavern. A fact of the day! I like the one in the background, too, urging us to break our new year resolutions in the pub!

Spotted in Bermondsey, but good advice to heed all over London.

The Triple!

DC Editor Adam writes…


Yesterday I posted about London Walker Michael Innis from Chicago who joined 46 consecutive London Walks over 16 days – three-a-day on 14 of those days! Catch up with that post HERE


Today I'm doing my own triple – leading three London WalksFun Photography at 10.45a.m, Rock & Pop  at 2.30p.m & The Seven Dials Pub walk at 7.15p.m.


My colleagues are also out and about leading 19 other London Walks and you can catch up with their endeavours at walks.com.


If you are joining me today, here's a rough guide to the step counts ahead of us…










Looking forward to seeing a few of you out-and-about today! If you are a Daily Constitutionalist, do introduce yourself!

Thanks bchaplin of Boston Massachusetts for the review on Tripadvisor…



“Charles Dickens, Westminster, Piccadilly and Pub Tours”

Really loved all of the walks from this company. I think my favorite might have been the Westminster Abbey one might have been my favorite, really helping to understand that amazing but potentially confusing place. The Charles Dickens tour was great too. Afterwards it convinced me to go back and listen to the complete story version of A Christmas Carol. The Piccadilly Circus tour pointed out lots of interesting tidbits around that part of the city. And the pub tour... how can you go wrong with a pub tour?

All of the guides seemed enthusiastic, interesting and well-educated, and gave me insight on history that I might otherwise have missed in my days in London. Will definitely do more of them next time I return.
