London Weekend Walks
We are the oldest walking tour company in London and offer a wide variety of routes with the best tour guides in London.
To go on one of our walks, simply meet your guide and fellow walkers in the street outside the underground stations and at the times given below. Your guide will have copies of this information sheet in his hand.
Below is our range of walks for this Saturday.
1000 Years of History
11.00 am Westminster Underground
This walk is essential for the first-time visitor. We'll show you the place where kings and queens are crowned, where they lived and often where they are buried. You will see where politicians have shaped the course of history over the years. This walk finishes at the Houses of Parliament, which you can visit afterwards at a good discount.
2.00 pm Tower Hill Underground
The walk begins with the best boat ride in London, five kilometres down the river from Tower Bridge to the Royal Naval College in Greenwich. From there you'll walk through Greenwich Park past the Naval Museum and other historic buildings to the village itself. We'll take you down narrow streets with busy antique shops and markets, back to the riverside where this walk ends.
The boat trip costs £3.50 on top of the normal price (see below).
Canals and Cafés
11.00 am Camden Town Underground
Camden Town, with its canals, cafés and studios, is the home of many artists, musicians and writers. The high point of the walk is a visit to Camden Lock, London's brightest and most exciting street market. You may like to take a canal trip to London Zoo after this walk.
3.00 pm Tower Hill Underground
This walk begins with a ride on Europe's most modern city railway giving you fine views across the Thames and the riverside area. We will get on and off the train for mini-walks to explore the hidden corners of the former port of London.
You should buy a two-zone underground ticket at the beginning of your journey.
All these walks last about two hours and end near underground stations. The walks take place in all weathers. Large groups are requested to phone and let us know they are coming. A walk costs £4.50 (£3.50 for senior citizens and full-time students under 26 with an identity card). Children under 12 go free but they must be with a responsible adult. If you plan to go on several walks, ask your guide about a discount card.

Dr Charlotte Uhlenbroek recently returned to London after filming her second series, Jungle. It was a difficult, 19-week trip, during which she explored the rainforests of Borneo, the Amazon and the Congo, travelling around using a variety of means of transport, including hot-air balloons and canoes. 'I'm interested in the way animals communicate with each other. It was sometimes dangerous making the programme - I even went swimming with piranha fish. But the worst thing was the insects. On one occasion I had 70 sandfly bites on my arm. Luckily I didn't get sick. I prefer not to take tablets every day, but if I get a fever I take some medicine immediately.'
Filming the series was exciting, but also frightening at times. Her most challenging experience was climbing a 100-metre tree in Borneo, as she has a great fear of heights. 'I had to keep pulling myself further and further upwards. All I wanted to do was get down again. Suddenly the safety equipment didn't look very strong and I thought that my ropes would break and I would crash to the ground.'
What did she enjoy most about returning to London? 'When I've been away in hot uncomfortable conditions for a long time I dream about an ice-cold drink and my bed at home! But the thing I look forward to the most is nice long showers. There wasn't much water in some of the places we visited and I worried that I was using it all up and not leaving any for my colleagues on the camera team!'

Many people receive picture postcards nowadays of places their friends and family have visited. They became popular in the 1890s. Until then it was only the rich who took holidays but at that time, because of the opening of the railways, ordinary people to go to the seaside too. Photographers that people wanted to take home a picture of their holiday they started to offer photographs for sale in seaside towns. And they sold 30 millions them.
Today those old photographs give us a very idea of what holidays were like a hundred years ago. People did not actually post the photographs but brought them home to and show their friends. This was, however, beginning of today's picture postcard which is important to tourists everywhere.
