Don't know of specific tour companies, but look up what a historical or literary society may offer. I always go solo, just using a good map (invest in the London A-Z from WHSmiths or any newsagents). Face areas:
Along embankment from City Hall heading on southbank to Tate Modern. Then cross millennium bridge to St Pauls, start looping back towards Charing Cross either along river or Fleet Street with stops in the Courts and Alexandra Palace.
Walk 2: start at Charing Cross, walk up St Martins with offshoots to Leicester Sq and Chinatown, but generally head towards Covent Garden. Off Covent Garden, look for Neals Yard and side streets loaded with small tiny unique shops and boutiques. You can then keep walking north on side streets and across one end of shaftsbury avenue to the Britsh museum
Walk 3: start Leicester Sq, wend to next streets that are Chinatown. Bop over Shaftsbury avenue to Soho. Head west through soho and get onto Regents street up towards Oxford circus. Bit touristy, but Carnaby street parallels regents street by Libertys, so may as well peak your head round there.
Walk 4: Camden market, Camden lock, up towards Belsize park & Hampstead high street.
I can go on and on. Have fun! almost 6 years ago
I did a walking tour with Baja Bikes. we passed by all the interesting highlights and i really liked that we had a guide who was able to inform us about a lot of things we otherwise never would have known. Of course, walking around on your own also has its charme. almost 6 years agoAnswered by Eve via WorldNomads.com
