體驗簡介

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!
Other things to note
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.

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.

體驗地點

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.

Ann was wonderful and so passionate. We learnt so much about the history of London and having a tour with just 4 people made it much more intimate and easy to hear. Ann wasn’t clock watching and we actually went over time. She was very sentient of my mum and dad’s needs with them being older for which I was grateful. I am looking forward to doing more reading on Christopher Wren! Thanks Ann for showing us around and giving us insight to the history London!

Ann was friendly and knowledgeable. I learned a lot about the history of London in a short time. It was a great use of time for my first trip to London.

Ann's walks are a real plus because they are small (6 people), adapted to the group's interest, and provided views of places we could have never seen or learned about otherwise. An wonderful start to our time in London.

Ann and her tour are absolutely wonderful. She expertly guided us through the Old City of London. She is very knowledgeable, funny, friendly, and had great enthusiasm! Take this tour you won't regret it!

The walking tour was great for our family of 5. It provided a great foundation for the original City of London. The walk was well paced but doable. Ann was a pleasure and it was nice to end the tour at Borough Market for a bite to eat.
