One thought on “Guided Walks

  1. I participated in the Magna Carta walk and found the tour very interesting and quite informative. I look forward to future walking tours around London. As a Canadian, we are taught some of this history in our school system, but to actually walk the streets and look at the historical buildings only reinforces and enhances those long ago lessons.
    Thank you.
