Character London Walks

About Us

Character London Walks was "born" in a small pub on near the SouthBank of the Thames in London in 2011.

In fact that un-named pub is one of those little gems that highlights what Character London Walks is all about - namely it is full of character and the life of London and one of those special places that you wouldn't come across unless you were very lucky, and almost certainly not on a normal London Walk.

Now don't get us wrong there are some Great London walking tour companies - full of knowledge and great guides and they take in many of the highlights that London, as the greatest city on earth, has to offer.

We applaud these companies for sharing our fine city to those that want to see and learn a bit more. At Character London Walks right from those humble beginnings discussing a career change over a few pints with some out of town friends that I'd been escorting across London for a couple of days and who said -"you really should be doing this for a day job rather than working your day job - which was 8-6 in a soulless financial institution".

They were right, I took the plunge, and since then I have led thousands of guests on our walks with as much enthusiasm and fun as from those early days and of course with even more knowledge that every walk and every guest brings to me and my wonderful hand picked colleagues who will guide you and bring you the precious insights that a guide book alone cannot do.

My aim is simply to help bring facets of London alive to you and bring a smile to you face as we do it. My close team of 5 guides and myself have this as our main goal. Join us and if you don't enjoy your experience and feel it is great value for money then just ask and I will personally give you the price of your walk back without hesitation. In 4 years and 920 walks and counting I haven't needed to once.
