Walking tours

Walking Tour - Harley Street: Healers and Hoaxers 

The tour begins with a short tour of the Royal College of Physicians: Sir Frederick Treves, discoverer of the Elephant Man, and speech therapist Lionel Logue (the non-royal star of ‘The King’s Speech’) both worked here, as did the ‘King of the Quacks’, John St John Long.

Discover the very medical address where budding doctor Arthur Conan Doyle created both Sherlock Holmes and one of the world’s most famous fictional physicians, Dr Watson.

Appropriately, our journey sweeps through Cavendish Square to see a hygienic statue made entirely from soap and catch a glimpse of a number of the country’s most venerable medical institutions including The King’s Fund and Royal College of Nursing.

We conclude on Portland Place near the home of the ‘keepers of consciousness’ at the Association of Anaesthetists and house of the first Baronet of Park Crescent.

Guided tour of London Tower Bridge

Discover the history of the bridge through the stories of those that designed, constructed and maintained it. Combining key facts with anecdotes, the personal guided tour brings the bridge to life, gazing through the glass floors and going into the Victorian engine rooms once powered by the bridges gates. It is the ultimate way to experience London’s defining landmark.
