See London from a new perspective

guided walks around the City of London


London comes alive for those who join a LONDON FOOTSTEPS walk and want to know what makes this one of the world’s great cities

The City of London has a rich and fascinating history. It has mystery and intrigue, heritage and tradition and times of triumph and tragedy.

Wander along the busy streets, through narrow passages and quiet alleyways, discover the gardens and green spaces and step inside to experience the peace and quiet of a centuries-old church. That is the way to see and learn about the LONDON experience.

LONDON FOOTSTEPS is all about making that experience a lasting memory. Whether you’re on holiday from abroad, on a business trip, a day visit or a group outing, a walking tour of the capital will be enthralling, surprising and informative.

LONDON FOOTSTEPS provides informal and friendly walks. In two hours your route will cover almost 2,000 years of history.  By the time it ends you will understand why London is such an extraordinary city and can provide memorable moments and leave a lasting impression.


What London Footsteps offer

Our walks and talks are designed for those who appreciate the history of London but don’t want to be overwhelmed by dates, kings, queens, battles or events that might be just too much to absorb in a maximum of two hours!


You are invited to participate in any one of our public walks, or you can get in touch and ask us to arrange a bespoke walk for you.  We are happy to build something that suits your specific needs.  Well suited to senior and retired walkers!


Our talks incorporate images and visual links to give audiences a full yet interesting historical experience. Clubs and societies know that it will be a compelling 45-60 minutes and audiences go away with stories and anecdotes about why London continues to be such a fascinating and influential city.


David Williams is a registered City of London guide and lecturer who specialises in themed walks and talks about London’s history dating back to the time when the invading Romans established Londinium nearly 2,000 years ago.


We have a published list of upcoming events, including walks and talks that you might be interested in attending.  All London Footsteps events are well planned, informative and great fun.  Come and join in.

Loved “Fire and Plague”.  It’s our 3rd London Footsteps walk and it won’t be the last.  Brilliant value.  Looking forward to the next one.
