Bespoke London: exclusive Neighbourhood tours

London is made up of many little villages. Their spirit lives on in the city's incredibly diverse  neighbourhoods. Choose from one of the three tours below to explore London off the beaten track:

1. THE WEST

This tour focuses on Chelsea, Fulham, Notting Hill, Hammersmith, Chiswick and Richmond. How much we cover, depends on the length of tour you choose and your specific interests.

What to expect: pretty streets, colourful houses, green spaces, exquisite shops and fancy restaurants, walks by the river, an old bishop's palace and rural scenery. Depending on your interests, we'll either concentrate on Chelsea, Fulham and Notting Hill (for the pretty streets, exquisite shops et al) or Hammersmith, Chiswick and Richmond (for the walks by the river and rural scenery).

2. THE NORTH

This tour focuses on King's Cross, Islington, Camden and West Hampstead/Hampstead. How much we cover, depends on the length of tour you choose and your specific interests.

What to expect: A whole new neighbourhood built on the once derelict wasteland behind King's Cross station, a bit more edge than in the West, canal walks, street food and a very genteel vibe in Hampstead. Plus, one of the best views of London from Hampstead Heath. Depending on your interests, we can spend more time in either the edgier bits in King's Cross, Islington and Camden or the more refined ones in the Hampstead area.

3. THE EAST

For this one, let's start in the City, London's financial district, and move east, taking in Spitalfields, Shoreditch, Whitechapel and Hackney. How much we cover, depends on the length of tour you choose and your specific interests.

What to expect: some peculiar combinations between London's oldest and newest bits, street art, hipster streets and shops but also a completely unexpected fairytale-like space hidden in a (very cool) gallery plus street food and markets. London's East End is where you can best see the British capital as a city of immigration through the centuries and how first Huguenots, then eastern European Jews and now Bangladeshis have shaped this part of town.
