Retrace the Final Steps of King Charles I on a Self-Guided Audio Tour

By VoiceMap London
About
Back in the 1600s, Londoners would gather to witness a very particular form of public entertainment. Hushed crowds would wait in anticipation for an offender to meet their end at the hands of an executioner. On the 30th January 1649, it was the reigning monarch, King Charles I, who had an appointment with the man who would end his life. This self-guided audio tour charts the life and death of this ill-fated king, taking you to some of London’s most famous and iconic sights including: • Henry VIII’s hunting lodge-turned-royal palace • One of London’s most picturesque royal parks, once home to an elephant • The abbey where all kings and queens have their coronation • The ancient hall where Charles I was put on trial • Henry VIII’s favoured jousting ground • The remains of what was once Europe's largest palace This walking tour can be enjoyed on location or even virtually at home with VoiceMap's Continuous Play function which disables the GPS playback.

    Insightful Britpop memories from someone who lived it!
    Excellent tour of Camden from a Britpop point if view. Loved Mirandas stories and bring able to discover places I managed to miss in the 90s! Highly recommend for anyone who was into the Britpop Scene in the 90s or anyone who wants an insight into what it was actually like (my 21 year old cousin enjoyed it). The walk itself is just the right length - you know you've had a good explore but you are not shattered. I won't spoil it but the final destination may be somewhere you can grab a well earned rest and a pint!

    Nostalgic trip back to the 90s!
    Really enjoyed this tour of Camden and it’s Britpop history! Great to hear from someone who was there at the height of the scene and get personal insights. I was in Camden from 1996 onwards so it was interesting to hear more about the early years. There was a good mix of local history of Camden and the music scene and why it developed there, told in a humorous and friendly style. Plus we all ended up in the Dublin Castle afterwards for a drink - I have such fond memories of DC with it being the first place I went to for a gig after moving to London.

    If you remember the era, well worth doing!
    A hugely interesting and informative tour with a great host and wonderful speeches. Huge respect to Miranda and all her hard work. A truly lovely walk as well around that area of North London. Thank you! Book with confidence.

    Perfect experience for any Britpop fan
    Fantastic tour for any Britpop or ‘90s enthusiast alike. Full of detail and personal anecdotes from the guide Miranda. Really enjoyed the fact it extended to Primrose Hill and ended at the iconic Dublin Castle.

    Fun and interesting afternoon in Camden
    The voice tour uses an app called Voice Map which tracks you using GPS to trigger the information. It was very interesting, easy to use and fun. It took me into parts of Camden I’ve never seen which was cool. I’d recommend this to any fans of Britpop music but also anyone visiting Camden and wanting to see some of the lesser known parts.

    Breakthrough Audio tour
    My wife and I love audio tours. Convenient, flexible, informative, personalized. For our May trip to London we discovered VoiceMap. This was a breakthrough. The app uses GPS to lead you around, and direct the tour. The app is free and easy to use offline. The tours are not, but worth it.

    The best audio tour I’ve come across
    This audio tour was brilliantly done. A truly authentic experience. I felt completely immersed. I would highly recommend for those wanting to do a tour in their own time with no big groups!

    Fun, informative walk round London
    A really fun, informative walk round Green Park and beyond, learning all about Oscar Wilde's life, works and relationships. Really enjoyed the commentary and finding out about some of the more hidden gems on this route and quirks like Wilde's penchant for smoking and running up bills at his hat shop. Also enjoyed taking peaks down little alleyways and looking at statues and places you'd easily otherwise miss without this audio. Thoroughly recommend whether you're a Wilde fan or just looking for something different to do in London.

    Excellent value for money
    Fantastic value for money. Exceeded our expectations. Easy to use and to follow. Being able to leisurely enjoy at our own pace without crowds of others was very a big plus. A number of interesting places to explore with the addition of insider knowledge rich with history. I would highly recommend this.

    Nice walk with lots of good pubs
    Lovely walk along the Thames although we did not get to Chiswick as the river had breached its bank and part of the route was flooded.

    Interesting and leisurely
    The app was really easy to use and audio tour was really interesting. I liked the fact that gps tracked your phone and only started to talk when you reached the next destination. It was great for my friend who has a lung condition so fast walking was out. Would highly recommend and we are looking forward to our next tour !

    Unable to use without internet
    I was not able to open the app as the area had terrible internet connection. So it did not work at all for me. Perhaps useful to suggest travellers to download the app and be able to listen without internet connection?!
