Charnowalks London guided tours
Though I guide chiefly in the City of London and the East End, I am developing tours in other areas of London. These tours are listed alphabetically below within their districts. Please click on the picture to get a more detailed description of each tour. (This will open in a new window.)

At the heart of historic Southwark you will find the theme of drink. It is famous for its inns and its place in the hop trade. it has links also with the beer and wine trades. This is an unashamed celebration of hospitality and the serious enjoyment of the grain and the grape.
The tone is set by one of the greatest poetic descriptions of a good glass of wine. It is hoped that after this tour you will always pause as you lift your glass and reflect appreciatively on the story behind the contents!
Why is London’s Theatreland in the West End? And what has it really contributed to the development of performance in Britain? Whether transforming pantomime and farce, promoting World Theatre and British operetta, Theatreland has contributed so much to the British theatrical scene.
This is not a plaques-and-statues tour. We move from Patent Theatres to studio theatres in an appreciation of the value of London’s Theatreland.
At the heart of Wesminster are its abbey and its palace. Established by Edward the Confessor, they are at the heart of the country’s seat of power. The nature of that power has changed, particularly after an eleven-year republic, but it has remained within this ancient area.
This tour engages with Westminster’s character as a focus of government and monarchy alike.
