What to expect on a London Walking Tour

City of London tour guide Mike Daly

London walking tours are usually led by one guide who will take you on a walk around the City. On public tours there could be anything from one person to a group of twenty or more, it just depends on how many book that tour. The pace will be comfortable, and your guide will stop at various locations along the way to give you information. You are free to ask questions. Usually the tours do not go inside any buildings unless it is specifically stated on the booking information. Once the tour ends you will know where particular buildings and attractions are and can go back and visit the in your own time.

Where possible, any roads will be crossed at controlled pedestrian crossings. Where this is not possible your guide will ask you to cross when you feel it is safe to do so. You are responsible for your own road safety.

London Walking Tour FAQ’s

Q: How long are the walking tours?

A: Many of the walks last around 90 minutes, but some may be a half-day or full day. When you book your tour there will be information on the booking page.

Q: How fast and how far will I need to walk?

A: The City of London is a relatively small area, in fact it’s known as The Square Mile, so we don’t have to cover a large area. Speed will depend on the group, but generally we move at a slow walking pace with frequent stops to see the sights.

Q: Are the walks accessible?

A: Many of the walking tours follow step-free paths, or have lifts and alternative routes. In the historic City of London there are some cobbled streets and uneven surfaces. If you think you may have difficulties be sure to ask your guide for advice.

Q: What should I bring?

A: It is a walking tour so wearing comfortable footwear is a must.  Be sure to dress appropriately for the weather on the day. You may want to carry some water, especially if it’s a hot day, and perhaps brisun cream and a hat. You are welcome to wear a mask and bring your own hand sanitizer.
