Welcome to London & Welcome to New London Walks…

These tours have been devised by Ed Glinert, England’s most prolific tour guide and London’s most energetic historian, author of Penguin’s London Compendium (one of the 21st century’s most important London books), East End Chronicles, West End Chronicles and The Literary Guide to London.
Big Ben, the Tower, Buck House, St Paul’s, the Eye, Westminster Abbey, the gates of No. 10, Covent Garden, the building where they chopped off Charles’ I’s head – all those landmark London locations you wanted to see in one day. Can it be done? Yes! and no waiting around on stuffy coaches in a never-ending traffic jam – We can take you via our Virtual Tours.
London in a Day
Big Ben, the Tower, Buck House, St Paul’s, the Eye, Westminster Abbey, the gates of No. 10, Covent Garden, the building where they chopped off Charles’ I’s head – all those landmark London locations you wanted to see in one day. Can it be done? Yes! and no waiting around on stuffy coaches in a never-ending traffic jam. We will take you. We can’t guarantee meeting Boris though.
No one can match our range of music tours. We don’t just do “The Beatles’ London”. We have invented “The Rolling Stones’s London” and cam offer similar for David Bowie and Pink Floyd, plus the unique “London in 12 Songs” – and all accompanied with the sounds you know so well.
* Tours devised by Ed Glinert, former production editor of Mojo.
No matter whether you live in London or Los Angeles, Acton or Aachen, Camden Town or Camden New Jersey, you can never tire, as Dr Johnson wanted to say, of an hour in Charles Dickens’s favourite, the Ye Olde Cheshire Cheese. Or there’s the chance to sup with the great actor Ian McKellen himself in his own Limehouse pub. But we don’t just drink. We tell the history en route, shaped from decades of immaculate research, as we sojourn from inn to inn.
Jack The Ripper
This is more than a shock horror tale of murdered prostitutes. As we trawl the mean streets of the East End, this becomes a journey into one of the greatest cover-ups and conspiracies in British history. This is a rare Jack the Ripper tour that features all five murders, looks into why and how the local Jewish population were framed, and uniquely takes you to the obscure East End location where it all went wrong for the British establishment.
* Tour devised by Ed Glinert, author of Penguin’s East End Chronicles.
Charles Dickens’s London
Dickens is London. Come with us to the Old Curiosity Shop, Nancy’s Steps, Fagin’s Den, Newgate Prison, the Blacking Factory and Lincoln’s Inn, where the Lord High Chancellor sits in the “very heart of the fog”.
