"To perambulate suggests a relaxed, unhurried and inquisitive stroll where destination or purpose is not particularly important. There can be no better way to observe and understand a city than on foot where the wealth of small detail and delight can only really be seen and appreciated from the perspective of the perambulator."
For those that have visited before or for those on their first visit, this tour is designed to show you a different side of London away from Big Ben and Buckingham Palace.
In a series of unique walking tours over 5 days we will look at remarkable architecture, tour one of the great Victorian cemeteries, and find out of the way bits of the city. There will be markets to explore, slightly odd museums to visit and a few surprises along the way.
Our tour is usually timed to coincide with the London Open House weekend offering the group a chance to see buildings and sites which are normally closed to the public.
Each day our group will set out by foot, bus or train to reach our starting point for the day's ramble and our walk will end near a specially chosen place for a late lunch and a pint.
Our tour includes: 7 nights in central London (continental breakfast inc.); 7 day, all zone London Transport Travel Pass; walking tours on 5 days; Open London excursion; selected admissions and three pub lunches. Participants will also receive an exclusive hand-bound travel journal.
The price is approximately $1600.00

"Each man, they say, discovers his own London. I suppose there is no city that boasts so many discoverers, nor any city loved for so many different reasons so logically sustained nor any place to which visitors so various claim kinship. London in a sense belongs to all."

A Loiterer in London, New York, 1924
