Covid-19 has many of us stuck at home, unable to get out, travel and explore as much as we might want to! There’s nothing to say, however, that you can’t enjoy London and beyond just as much from the comfort of your own house! Rambling London Tours has the answer! Virtual Tours! All of that culture, learning, and entertainment, and it’s as simple as turning on your computer.
It’s super easy to take part! The virtual tour takes place on Zoom. All you have to do is contact me to organise a theme, date, and time, and then on the day of the event I will email you with the Zoom link and the simple instructions to make sure you’re in the right virtual place at the right time and ready to go! Please make sure you have Zoom downloaded before the tour.
Here’s a little taster of a virtual tour I did recently for Guide London:
I currently have virtual tours prepared for:
From the “Piggeries and Potteries” to the Taj Mahal of Kensington, Portobello Market to Notting Hill Carnival. See its street art and film locations. Let me share some of the colour and energy of Notting Hill with you.
Spitalfields is now famous for its street art and market, but have you ever heard the story of the eighteenth century silkweavers who called it home or discovered its Medieval hostpital?
Women of Bloomsbury
Hear the tale of Bloomsbury told through its remarkable women. Second World War spies, Women’s Suffrage fighters, Britain’s first female dentist, authors, and archivists – Bloomsbury has it all!
Let me take you back to my old place of study to tell you about the fascinating history of Britain’s oldest university, as well as what it’s like for students today.
Heart of Vauxhall
Did you know that women’s suffrage campaigner, Millicent Fawcett, was behind Vauxhall Park? Or that the Royal Vauxhall Tavern is protected for its LGBTQ heritage?Come and discover the eclectic and often heart-warming history of Vauxhall.
Music, Museums & Mavericks of South Ken
The legacy of the 1851 Great Exhibition, South Kensington is best known for the Royal Albert Hall and its fantastic museums. But on top of all that, you’ll also hear the tale of the curious exploding rodents…!
Today, Soho is the home of theatre, the LGBTQ community, and Chinatown. A warren of twisting streets which has hidden centuries of secrets. On the tour, you’ll meet some of Soho’s fantastic characters: from indomitable Colony Club host, Muriel Belcher, to physician John Snow.
You might think you know Westminster: the Houses of Parliament, Westminster Abbey, Downing Street etc. There’s so much more though that you won’t have heard before. A lost prison, Tudor tourneys, even a secret wine cellar under the Ministry of Defence. You can’t make this stuff up!
