Important Notice 15 March 2020

Following government advice we have suspended our walks until further notice

We can't wait until we can take you around the wonderful City of London. We'll of course update you with any developments as they happen.


Nearly all the regular walks and tours offered on this website are just turn up and pay or free. For these walks no advanced booking is possible. There are only a few tours that need to be booked in advance (Illuminated River, Smithfield Market, Leadenhall Market walks and Guildhall and the Roman Bath House tours) because of restricted numbers.

We try to make our walks as inclusive and accessible as possible.

Note: tours run every day of the year except Christmas Day and Boxing Day. In exceptional circumstances we may not have a guide available and we'll let the City Information Centre know.

If you want a walk or lecture for a group of people, then please use our Find a Guide section.
