Discover London with Londoners
Fact: London is the greatest city in the world. Another fact: staying on top of London’s incredible history and heritage AND its latest and greatest happenings can be confusing. And let’s face it hard work...
Enter Talk of the Town London. Launching in August 2014, Talk of the Town London is an exciting walking tour company that aims to provide locals and visitors alike, the inside track on the London scene.
Our team consists of veteran tour guides, Time Out journalists, actors and life long Londoners so we know where the buzz is coming from - and can share our knowledge in a dynamic, sociable and original fashion with YOU before most people hear or read about it.
Our mission is clear: we don’t want anyone to waste a minute of their time in Europe’s most exciting metropolis lost in Leicester Square or chowing down in the chain gang. Not when ‘real’ London is ready and waiting to be discovered.
Choose from three ‘core’ tours: Grim Tales of London, High Society and London 101
Grim Tales of London
Take a walk down London’s dark, unsavoury past and find yourself immersed in a gory, haunting history, where imprints of spirits and serial killers linger to this day. Wander down old Victorian cobblestone streets, searching for clues to Jack the Ripper’s identity. Learn about executions, haunted castles, plague pits and insane asylums as London lures you down into her seedy underbelly. Strong constitution advised.
Tour runs Tuesday and Friday at 6pm
Come join us on a jaunt through elegant Mayfair and see London through the eyes of the elite. Discover the stomping ground of 18th century bachelors, peek into the windows of exclusive private gentlemen’s clubs and accompany blushing débutantes to their first high society ball. The tour also reveals the intrigues and behind-the-scene politics that dominated this distinctive social class and includes an optional afternoon tea at one of London’s most charming venues.
Tour runs Thursday and Saturday at 2pm
Time is precious, but even if you’re in London for 24 hours, you have to see the blockbusters: Buckingham Palace, St. James’s Palace, Trafalgar Square, Horse Guards Parade, Downing Street, Big Ben, Westminster Abbey, the Houses of Parliament, (a pub break!), St. Paul’s Cathedral, Monument and the Tower of London. We’ll show you them all in half a day. A great tour for first time visitors.
Tour runs Wednesday and Saturday at 10am
Prefer to get to grips with London at your own pace? No problem! As well as our core group tours, we offer private tours - great for families, friends, hen and stag weekends... We can also craft customised itineraries to suit your personality (tell us what you like and we’ll tell you what you will love...), pocket and time frame.
