Royal London tour reviews:
“Really enjoyable and informative walk with friendly and knowledgeable guide Hazel. Learned fascinating facts that made it very worthwhile."
"I have done a few of Hazel's walks: Wonders of Whitehall, Oliver Twist and Victorian Soho and Covent Garden. They are a fantastic way of learning more about the city, bring history to life and finding hidden gems that you wouldn't otherwise notice or appreciate."
"Hazel is very friendly and has a great knowledge of London and is clearly passionate about what she does. I've enjoyed the tours so much that I am taking my parents on the Royal London walk when they visit."
"So interesting. Well organised and very informative. We took the back roads so it was refreshingly quiet. Will definitely book another tour. Fabulous way to spend an afternoon." Anon
