London Walks

Footprints of London is delighted to partner with HLSI again this year to bring you a programme of guided walks and tours. You’ll discover places in London you haven’t seen before and we’ll shed new light on those you have. We’ll reveal the intriguing and surprising stories behind the places you walk past every day and entertain and inspire you with stories from London’s rich and diverse past. Walks will cover a variety of topics including literature, art, architecture, history, waterways, science, crime and punishment and more. Each walk will be a gentle stroll covering an average distance of about two miles with several stops along the way where you’ll be encouraged to look up, down and around you while the guide tells you more about what you are seeing. There will be plenty of chances to socialise with your fellow walkers both while walking and at the 30-minute coffee stop approximately at the mid-point of the walk.
