Footprints of London
Where Londoners Walk
It all began in 2011 when a group of friends from one of the London guiding courses had the bright idea to pool their efforts to promote their walks.
Today we are nearly 50 strong, but the principle remains the same: a company co-operatively owned by our guides that exists solely to promote the best walks in London and the best standards in guiding.
That’s the Footprints of London difference; quality walks by and for those who love London.
Professional, qualified and independent guides
All our guides are qualified and hold at least one of the accreditation badges issued by the Local London Guiding Associations.
Each of these badges is hard-earned and involves a year of rigorous study and examination in both the practice and principle of guiding, so you can be sure that your guide is up to the task of taking you efficiently and safely around London’s busy streets.
We’re from as diverse a range of backgrounds as the walks we present, but there is one thing that that binds us; a desire to seek out the fascinating stories that lurk in London’s amazing past to share them with you.
As we all research and write our own walks based on our own interests, these stories will be told to you with an unrivalled knowledge & enthusiasm.
