Local London Guiding Day 8 October

Local London Guiding Day is an annual event when for one day only professional guiding associations across London joint together to provide a day of free, guided walks.  This year, six associations are involved with a range of walks showcasing their areas.  Walks are a maximum of one hour and set off on the hour from 10am - 4.00pm in each area,  so you can do more than one over the day.


Making Their Mark on the City

Saturday 8 October 2022, 10am to 4pm

A wander through the heart of the City of London, hearing about some of the people who have left their legacy here. Romans, writers, architects and more - discover how they've helped to shape the Square Mile.

Free hourly tours from 10:00hrs to 16:00hrs (last tour)

Meeting point: Outside Exit 2 of St Paul's Tube station.

End point: Bank Junction

You can book your place here or simply turn up and join the tour as we hold extra places for people who miss the booking deadline.

Proud to be part of the Local London Guiding Day

We offer daily, weekly and monthly walks around the City of London 

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

Some of our walks offer concession rates: valid for over 65s and students

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 

Private tours

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 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 an evening walk with us? 

If you've been on a walk recently we'd love to hear from you. Why not leave a review on our TripAdvisor page?

Note: We try to make our walks as inclusive and accessible as possible


October 8th is Local London Guiding Day - a day of free walks to showcase the City of London and professional guiding.
