Starting and ending in the atmospheric and really historical George pub in Borough High Street, the local walking tour was a tour-de-force of performance and facts. The area and lives of ordinary folk came to life in a grisly, accurate portrayal of everyday local life...More

We loved this tour. It combines detailed and well told history with loads of fun and ends with a short performance at the George Inn, which is a great place to start and finish the tour. Our guide was brilliant.

of the Thames to enjoy some of Britain's biggest

We booked directly with the website and paid the early bird price of £11.95 each. well worth it, and at least the money goes directly to this small venture. Highly reccommend
