Your guides to LondonFootprints of London is a London guided walks company with a difference; we're owned by our guides, all our guides are qualified and accredited and all our walks are researched and written by the guides leading them.
Walks by and for those who love London delivered with care, professionalism, insight and enthusiasm, that's the Footprints of London difference.
Thank you!Many thanks to the hundreds of people who joined us for Literary Footprints through October. It was gratifying (and great fun!) to have so many people join us to share their passion in all things literary London and all the guides were really thrilled to be able to share their favourite stories with so many of you.
As ever in London a few unpredictable things happened along the way...
While Alan was talking about Paul Robeson’s appearance at the Unity theatre in St Pancras in the 1930s, a passer-by stopped to listen a moment and then handed him a copy of a local newspaper open at a page which featured a picture of exactly the moment being described; Mark was in the alleys off Cornhill in the middle of describing Dickens’ familiarity with the same network of alleyways when, as if on cue to illustrate the point, three men resplendent in Victorian costume emerged from a dark passage and walked past (the group rightly refused to believe his audacious claim that he had laid them on specially!); and Jenni nearly lost her group when Hugh Grant walked past and all anyone was interested in for the following 5 minutes was getting their selfie with a superstar!
Such unexpected moments only serve to make us love London all the more.
If you missed any of the Literary Footprints walks, a number will feature again over the coming weeks (and November is such a wonderful time to wrap up warm for some city walking), so keep an eye on our schedule and we hope to see you soon!
