Private Guided Walking Tours of London
Private Guided Walking Tours of London

London is a city whose history spans over two thousand years. Within its borders are some of the most important and iconic buildings and landmarks in Britain. In 1716, the poet and dramatist John Gay published his Trivia: or The Art of Walking the Streets of London. His advice warned of cheats, pickpockets and wig-snatchers and how the walker should resist the harlot's lure.


Nowadays I'm pleased to report that walking in London is a far more civilised affair. Let me invite you to join me on one of my private walking tours and discover the well known, and not so well known sights of this great city. You can choose from one of my suggested tours, or if you have a particular interest I will be pleased to design a bespoke tour for you

I'm Ian Grover and I'm a fully qualified tour guide, registered in London with the City of Westminster and a member of the City of Westminster Guide Lecturers Association (CWGLA). Because these are private walks we are not restricted to the rigid timetables of organised tours. You choose the time, place and duration and I will be pleased to be your personal host and guide as required. I am fully licenced and have comprehensive public liability insurance.


For a general overview of the "must see" sights of London my Highlights Walks are an ideal way to introduce you to the most well known and iconic London landmarks. These walks generally last around two hours and are a great way to discover the real London through the eyes of a locall.


I also offer a selection of Themed Walks covering a range of interests exploring various aspects of London's past. Whatever your interest, be it motoring or murder, politics or prostitution, rogues or royalty you're sure to find a walk to whet your appetite. All walks are booked privately for those who prefer a more personal experience. Ideal for individuals, families or small groups who would rather work within their own sechedule.



Any of the walks can be combined with a memorable gastronomic experience. Perhaps you might like to start the day with a Full English breakfast, or maybe savour a hearty Pub Lunch or some gourmet Street Food? Alternatively why not experience a traditional Afternoon Tea or enjoy a Fish and Chips supper? There are a host of iconic eating places awaiting you and we know the best places for you to enjoy a taste of the real London.
