Welcome to My London Walks

SELF-GUIDED WALKS FOR INQUIRING MINDS

I originally started compiling these walks for personal use, but as more and more friends began to ask me for copies, I decided to put them online.

The walks cover some of the more well-known areas of London, as well as those not so well-known, that I find interesting and believe have played a particularly important part in the city’s development, both in the past and still do today.

They are not for the casual tourist who want to visit the ‘top sights’. Instead, they are generally rather detailed, with a lot of information about what you will see on the walk – the sort of information that I find myself wondering about as I walk around London and then spend time researching.

I’ve given more information about my interest in London and how the walks came about on the About page.

“If you wish to have a just notion of the magnitude of this city, you must not be satisfied with seeing its great streets and squares, but must survey the innumerable little lanes and courts.”
