This walk follows government guidelines on combating covid to ensure guest safety.

We will walk around quiet backstreets from Westminster to Vauxhall. Over two hours we will visit a Georgian cathedral town and pleasure garden, a Victorian penal port and graveyard, a Bronze Age port and religious site, and a 21st-century city that is still under construction. You will be immersed in different historical periods and will hear about lots of gossip and scandal. This walk actively encourages your participation. This walk can best be regarded as an open-air seminar where I facilitate a greater understanding of how class and money operate in English culture.
Other things to note
Bring sensible walking shoes and rainwear—this is an all-weather walk. I will provide hand sanitiser.
Occasionally some back streets are blocked off due to filming or local events taking place. When this happens or if guests have a particular interest in the History of the British Monarchy an alternative route/tour is offered which finishes in Trafalgar Square. Please ask if you are interested in this route/tour.

Terry’s tour is brilliant! The history of the famous Westminster area, as presented by Terry, comes to life in the most captivating way. Terry’s conversational style and passion for the subject made this tour one of the best I have been on in my travels. Highly recommended!!

Had the loveliest tour with Terry. He was very informative and we had a great chat about the history of the area we saw.

My wife and I picked this experience as an excellent walk through Westminster on a brisk Saturday morning and had an amazing time. Terry was extremely knowledgeable about the history of the city, the monarchy, British politics throughout history and lots of small details that put it all in context and tied everything together. The walk took around 2 hours and went from the QEII center near Westminster Abbey to the southbank of Vauxhall - however the history is so interesting that you don't really notice where you are until the end! Definitely recommend this experience for anyone who is interested in the history of London, regardless if you're just visiting or have lived here for years. As a side note, it also might be a good idea to have a few 50p coins handy if you need a restroom at the start of the tour, the ones at Westminster station charge!

Terry was a great guide – we spent a very enjoyable two hours ambling through the streets (and centuries!) of lesser-known London. We had lived in London before and wanted to move a little off the beaten path, and this tour more than met that need. He was easy company, very informed, and skilled at contextualising and relating historical events with modern circumstances. We'll definitely look him up again next time we're back in the city!

We went on an amazing walking tour with a small group. Terry brought us to many non-touristic fascinating places and brought history alive with his enthusiasm, broad knowledge and story-telling. A must-do for history geeks and noobs alike.

Terry is a wonderful guide! I have gone on two of his tours and loved both. He is very knowledgeable and does a great job weaving major historical events with interesting smaller facts. I would highly recommend this and any of Terry’s other tours!
