Free* London Walking Tour

Starts every day in Green Park at 11:00

Our free* guided London walking tour is the perfect introduction to London history and the area often referred to as “royal London”. In addition to all the famous attractions, such as Buckingham Palace, Westminster Abbey and Changing of the Guard, you’ll also discover little-known streets, hear anecdotes and stories, and get a feel for the great sweep of London history from Roman times right up to the present day – a story like no other! The tour takes about two hours.

There’s no charge but tips are accepted. The tours are run this way so that everyone can afford to go, no matter what kind of budget they’re on.

You can just show up on the day, but as places are limited we recommend you book in advance to let us know you are coming.

*How the tour works

There is no charge but we'd be grateful if you could tip our wonderful guides, so that we can keep this tour running. The Free Tour helps to support students and creative people who love being outdoors showing people around their city. The guides contribute a small per person fee from each tour (the amount depends on the size of the tour. For example, if the group is small the guide contributes nothing because we want to make sure things always work in their favour). This helps us cover the cost of promoting the tour.
