Full description
The tour begins outside one of central London's quietest underground stations, Temple. From here your guide will take you along side streets far away from the tourist trail and point out curious sights, including an old Cabman's shelter, built for taxi drivers at a time when they needed shelter from the rain, a so-called Roman Bath (which has a questionable past) and on to one of London's oxblood red Ghost stations, Aldwych.  In a tour full of weird and wonderful tales of tradition, folklore and ceremony, you'll stand beside one of London's lost rivers, head over to the City's most romantic church, soak up the atmosphere of an area once used by the legendary Knights Templar, then finish the walk off by going in search of the most notorious barber of them all, Sweeney Todd!

    Comprehensive tour guide with sense of humour!

    Danni was our guide and she knew a lot of information, but made the tour funny as well so combining humour and history, so it wasn’t just reams of information. There are other tours that she gave us information about such as lost London and secret London which I would definitely like to do. This tour covered only a small section because London is vast so the other tours would cover other parts. Saying that, it would be easy to revisit the places another time. I never even knew about the places we were taken to and so wouldn’t think to look them up for reference. I would recommend this tour to anyone wanting to know more about London.
