With an astonishing variety of routes, total reliability and superb guides who are guaranteed to enthral, amuse, engage and entertain London Walks are one of the best ways to discover the real history of London. These guides are some of the best in the UK and make their subject come alive for tour groups of all ages.

London Walking Tours

Take things slow with a few London guided walks and discover the secret stories the capital has to offer. From Old Westminster tales full of political intrigue to discovering the bard himself at Shakespeare's Bankside, there's something for everyone and they're easily some of the best walking tours in London.

If the hustle and bustle of the Big Smoke is getting you down, the tranquil Village London tour will take you through the quieter greener pockets of the capital. Choose from the lush green tour of Hampstead Heath, the sophistication of Kensington, quaint Little Venice or a maritime jaunt - a selection of London guided walks you won't have to brave the tube for.

If you're partial to a pint and want to explore some of the best and oldest pubs in London, there's an option for that too. With several pub walks available, the star of the show is easily the Along the Thames Pub Walk which will trace the curve of the river in search of its biggest highlights. You'll stop off at Shakespeare and Charles Dickens' favourite haunts, as well as an 18th century pub that still brews its own beer - just remember to pace yourself or you'll miss out on the guided commentary along the way.

One of the best walking tours in London will have you quaking in your boots: namely, London Walks' guided Ghost Walk. The capital is steeped in history and some of it isn't quite so pleasant, with tales of murder, intrigue and unexplained paranormal activity. Led by a professional actor clued up on everything that goes bump on a London night, there's a number of variations from a classic Haunted London tour, a Ghosts of the Old City tour to meet London's grumbling ancestral residents and a West End Ghost tour - you know, for the paranormals that love a bit of a song and dance.

Jack the Ripper Walking Tour London

As one of the most popular London walking tours on the operator's roster, this gory expedition through Jack the Ripper's slashing grounds in Whitechapel isn't for the weak hearted. Led by internationally recognised Ripper expert Donald Rumblelow who literally wrote the book on the infamous serial killer, this night time tour sets off just outside Tower Hill tube station.

The tour traces the route that the terror of East London once did, weaving through Mitre Square and the streets of Whitechapel. Once you're well and truly terrified, the tour wraps up at The Ten Bells pub where you'll be able to grab a pint and destress like a Londoner.

The tour is accompanied by expert commentary about the Ripper's methods, victims and raises all sorts of questions about who the mysterious murderer - who managed to elude some of London's greatest police minds - really is.

The Jack the Ripper Walk runs nightly at 7.30pm, with an additional 3pm Saturday tour.

Harry Potter Walking Tour London

For a family friendly tour that you won't need a Hogwarts letter for, this Harry Potter walking tour will take you through some of the beloved tale's iconic spots from both the films and books. With two tours to choose from, you'll see sights from Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, The Prisoner of Azkaban, The Order of The Phoenix and The Half Blood Prince. From bustling Diagon Alley through to Sirius Black's home Grimmauld Place, you'll need to come with your wand (and a camera) ready. For more magical experiences, check out our guide to Harry Potter in London and set a day aside to explore the Harry Potter Studio Tour for an unforgettable day out.

"We went to see so much more than if we had to pay individually. Was nice paying for it before the trip so didn't have to bring extra money and worry about running short. We also got the travel pass and restaurant discount book and discovered some very nice places to eat that we wouldn't have known about. Planning on coming back in 2014 and will buy another one! Recommend it 200%!"
