When Is A Free Walk Genuinely Free?

Adam writes…

When a tour is advertised as "FREE", is it ever genuinely free of charge?

Well, if you are under 15 and accompanied by an adult (or adults) then you can join a London Walks tour for free – handy to keep in mind with the Easter Holidays coming up.

Here's nine-year-old Isobella voicing-over a short vid for London Walks Ghost Tours (full details at

There's one exception to this London Walks rule - on the 18th of June 2017 The Father's Day Special Rock'n'Roll London Walk will be free to all dads! Everyone else will pay £10.

And before you ask: NO you can't just dump the old duffer for his free walk and pick him up at the end. You HAVE to come with him! Spend some quality time with the old geezer and let him keep his wallet shut for at least two hours of his life.

The walk ends at Poppies fish and chip shop on Old Compton Street, Soho. Maybe you can convince him to spring for a Father's Day meal at the end of the walk. It's nothing less than you deserve for being such a kindly daughter/son.

Online booking is available for this London Walk via EventBrite:

Go on, be nice to the grumpy old fart.

The Father's Day Special Rock'n'Roll London Walk takes place on Sunday 18th June 2017 at 2.30pm. Meet at Tottenham Court Road tube exit 1.
