Walk of the Week: Unexpected #London

Every Sunday we’ll pluck just one walk from the vast London Walks repertoire and put it centre stage.

You can check out the full schedule at

But if you only take one walking tour this week, why not make it…

Secret Places & Hidden Interiors

11 am on Fridays from Temple Tube

There's no need to book. A London Walk takes about two hours and costs £10 or £8 for concs. Kids under 15 accompanied by their parent[s] go free.

"If you want to know London better, if you want to learn some things about the world's most cosmopolitan city that most people who spend their lives there never learn I can think of no better investment than London Walks" (The New York Times). Could have been describing this walk. A walk that makes the new familiar and the familiar new. A walk that teems with unexpected delights, odd places and passing strange things and people. With – in short – a quorum of quintessential quirkiness. Grade A quintessential quirkiness. Quintessential London quirkiness. A taster? Try hidden palaces, The King's Speech Royal Chapel, the hotel where George Orwell worked, the chair with a flying guinea pig and – the jewel in the crown – a gothic chapel hidden away from public view and not visited on any other London Walk.

The Unexpected London Walk takes place every Friday morning at 11 am
