Went to see a custom shoe maker, taylor/haberdasher, and a perfumer. The haberdasher and perfumer have history that spans generations. Penny was extraordinary in her knowledge of the history and culture and London. She made the trip extremely interesting. Not a run of the mill experience in London. We have been to London many, many times and it was one... More

We took part in an art walk though Deptford with the painter Ian Bruce in October 2016. The lovely tour started with coffee and croissants in Ian's home where his atelier is situated as well. Before the visit all partipicants could send a photo of themselves what Ian used to include in a drawing which we later took away home.... More

Penelope has done it again! A tutorial in street photography, in a target rich environment ... vivid colours, exciting subject matter, dramatic scenes, varied lighting and an excellent photographer (Clive Sherlock) to guide us along the way, with tips, hints and critical appraisal. It fired me up to get the SLR out more often and look for those excellent images.... More

I booked my dad (a keen photographer) the Street Photography walk for his birthday. Being a complete novice I was quite apprehensive but was amazed with the whole experience. Clive was an excellent tutor. Really helpful, with structured feedback, helping us get the most out of each task he set. We were not overly bombarded with information, instead left to... More

Penelope was fantastic! Very intelligent and eclectic. She knew the answer to each question we had. I really enjoyed the tour and would recommend it to anyone! She made it personalized and showed us fashion in London. Very interesting.

I lived and worked in London for 18 years and thought I was pretty knowledge about the history and Trades of London. Penelope showed a whole new culture of London that was interesting and beautiful. I did two bespoke walks. The first was the fashion tour. Besides the pageantry of clothing, scents, the people and their history, my favourite discovery... More

It was just two of us with Penelope and she introduced us to a side of Camden we did not know - amazing healing tea shop with a very passionate owner - will never waft a tea bag in a cup of boiling water again! Local coffee grinder and lovely Cypriot restaurant.

We had Penelope (our lovely guide) all to ourselves. As Londoners, who never tire of London, we are very critical of anyone who masquerades as a tour guide. However, Penelope entertained us with history of the Strand and took us to some really unusual places of interest. We won't spoil the surprise, although you must meet Terry and Roxy; say... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Camden
Famous for its sprawling cluster of markets and shops as well as for an embrace of all things counter culture, Camden offers a concentrated version of London street life. From bargain shopping and people watching to rubbing elbows in its abundance of pubs and bars, Camden is the place to be for many a Londoner. It is also home to some of the hottest live music venues in Europe. As packed as Camden High Street and its tributaries can get during the weekends, this neighbourhood is right next to some of the city's most beloved outdoor spaces, namely Regent's Park and Primrose Hill.
