Historic London Tours
Historic London Tours is led by Tom Currie, both a qualified London Borough of Camden and London Borough of Islington tour guide. Tom can be contacted at bookings@historiclondontours.com or +44 7783 401 129. "The tour was excellent, we all loved it (that includes myself and the two young history buffs with me, one 10 the other 18yo). Tom is a wonderful guide, very knowledgeable, funny and engaging. Highly recommended." ***** Romana A "There are loads of walking tours around London, I would absolutely recommend this one, very very reasonably priced and you're not dragged all over the place with a large crowd, numbers are limited which does make a difference. I've seen places I never knew were there! The guide, Tom, is very affable and knowledgeable (not an actor who's learnt a script). The gory history of London is always fascinating and he pulls it off extremely well with humour with references to some of England's greatest writers. I'll definitely try the others." ***** Sian G "The tour was fantastic, so interesting and we learnt so much. Tom made it a wonderful experience using quotes from literature and other sources to bring history alive. He was so enthusiastic and happy to answer questions. His historical knowledge was outstanding. We'll definitely be going on his other tours. A must do for all!!" ***** Jane M
