Footprints of London offers a fresh and vibrant series of walking tours researched and delivered by enthusiastic, talented, independent and qualified guides. We’re a little different to other operations in that all our walks are only bookable through the internet. This enables us to limit numbers, so you will never join a group with too many people – enabling us to navigate some of the lesser known byways in our travels.

Our guides offer a wide range of tours, with special themes allowing you to enjoy the less visited areas of London. We also visit the major tourist areas typically offering walks with a different twist to those that are more widely available.

Finally if you would like to undertake one of our walks, and can’t make the scheduled dates, do let us know - we may be able to run one for you and your friends.

If you  join our mailing list  we will send you regular email updates of walks. And to get the latest news, please like our Facebook page or Follow us on Twitter by using these buttons:

It is also possible to leave our mailing list at any time (although we would be sorry to see you go).   We also welcome feedback on our walks and web site – for any other contacts please mail admin@footprintsoflondon.com.
