#LondonWalks Walk Of The Week: South Hampstead With @kpgtourguide

On Sundays we 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…

South Hampstead

Sunday 20th May 2018
Belsize Park Tube |

Guided by Karen

Keats-cadenced, Wisteria-wreathed, Karen-conducted, sunny Cinderella village.

This walk is created and guided by superstar guide Karen (Travel & Leisure crowned her "the world's greatest guide"; she fronted that major Canadian television series, "London, Next Stop"; she won the Guide of the Year Award; she's the author of Royal London; well, you get the idea).

The walk's an astonishingly rich repast, ranging from the street the Guardian described as "the loveliest street in London" to bullet holes in a pub to Orwell and Keats (of course) to the Heath to an ancient skittles alley to London's second most important river to Huxley and Triffids and a great old London teaching hospital to a cafe-rich village street to ghost adverts to... well, come and see.

The South Hampstead Walk takes place at 2.30 pm on Sunday, May 20. The meeting point is just outside the exit of Belsize Park Tube.

N.B. the South Hampstead Walk ends very near Belsize Park Tube.

About Your Guide…


Karen comes trailing clouds of glory. Travel & Leisure crowned her "the world's greatest tour guide." 

She hosts the Canadian television travel show "London Next Stop." 

She won the London Tourist Board's Guide of the Year award.

She is, quite simply, a star turn – which is why she's the "go to" London guide for every major media concern. 

A reformed actress and occasional journalist, her gold standard walks are, needless to say, vivid and entertaining.

She's the author of Royal London.

A London Walk costs £10 – £8 concession. To join a London Walk, simply meet your guide at the designated tube station at the appointed time. Details of all London Walks can be found at
