Our daily walks run from the City Information Centre, just south of St Paul's. You need to book via Eventbrite to secure you place. Note: the cut-off time for booking our daily walks is 21:00hrs the night before. If we don't have any bookings then the walk will not take place.
Our weekly walks have individual booking pages and earlier cut-off times, please see the individual listing.
Some of our walks offer concession rates: valid for over 65s and students. All Eventbrite bookings have a booking fee. We try to make our walks as inclusive and accessible as possible.
If you'd like to organise your own walk, lecture or a virtual tour, then please use our Find a Guide section. If you're a member of an Arts Society or a U3A or other group we'd love to take you on a tour of the City. And if you're a company based in the City who'd like to organise a social event for your work colleagues, why not book a walk with us?
