Guided Walks in London

Welcome to my site. It is still being built up, but contains over 50 articles I have written on London topics, so feel free to browse.

I’m a City of London Guide, City of Westminster Guide, National Trust Guide, and former partner in a City law firm. When doing walks and talks I try to bring knowledge, enthusiasm, and the ability to engage with an audience. For feedback, see my Reviews.

In the first part of this year I have been mainly focusing on the training of lawyers that I do as another part of my life, but there has also been some walks activity. This has included taking a group of professionally qualified guides on a tour of the Royal Courts of Justice (with a repeat due to interest), showing some US students the finance and business sights in the City, and leading a group on a tour themed "Jewish Developers and the City". I am also doing a talk at the Guildhall Library on Thursday 19th June on the Cleveland Street Scandal - this is sold out, but the talk will be repeated at the Barbican Library (within the Barbican Centre) at 12.30 on Thursday 26th June - admission is free.

My next major project is a walk on Saturday 9th July, which I am calling Inns of Literature. We will walk in and around the Inns of Court area, hearing about literature and literary figures connected with the law. Appropriately for the 400th anniversary of the Bard's birth, there will be some Shakespeare, and Dickens will naturally feature, but there will be plenty other figures, real and fictional, brought into the story. My guide colleague, Kathryn Prevezer, will join me to help with some of the readings. 

We will start at 11am, take in a mid-point lunch break, and finish by no later than 3pm. Booking will be via Eventbrite, and here is the link: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/inns-of-literature-a-law-and-literature-wal.... If you would like any information concerning the walk, please feel free to email me at colinwalkslondon@aol.com

All best
