"This is a wonderful way of seeing London and having a professional photographer as guide only adds to the experience."
"We really enjoyed our South Bank walking tour, our guide Mike was very knowledgeable and his advice helped improve our skills significantly. I hope to try one of his other walks soon!"
"I wanted to go on a photography tour because I’d had my camera for some time but didn’t really know how to use it properly. Mike gave me plenty of tips on what things to consider when taking a photo e.g. light and perspective. I was so pleased with my photos from the day and am really grateful to Mike for such an enjoyable day!"
"Excellent walking tour. Went out with Mike who is extremely knowledgeable. I learnt a great deal about the places we visited and about my own camera too. As a beginner, I found Mike to be very patient and I had really enjoyable time. Came back with some great shots."
"Since semi retiring and moving to another part of the country, I have taken up photography, but needed help. I decided to book a tour with London Photo Walks and had a lovely day in London. I thought I knew the City, I was so wrong. Mike really brought the sights alive and I learnt such a lot from him and photography. It was amazing and cannot thank him enough!"
"Mike gave me clear advice and explained how to use my camera controls to be more creative in my photography. He was able to answer all of my questions about both my camera and knew a lot about the history and trivia of the places we visited on the Royal Parks walk. I would highly recommend this tour to photographers of all skills levels looking to improve their skills and the printed guides we were given at the end of the walk have been really useful."
"Mike really knows how to be both a knowing tour guide with interesting facts about London and to show you the best spots for taking nice photos and helping you with composing your pictures and handle your camera. He was really dedicated and even did overtime when showing us parts of the City we did not originally book."
"Mike was super knowledgeable both about photography and about the sites we visited on the tour. He was not pushing photo-facts down our throats, but gave us small hints here and there that enabled us to both have a great day, but also take home some neat photos that we can hang on the wall and remind us of a great day out in London."
Each photo walk has been put together to feature different aspects of London, taking in scenic views and iconic London landmarks.
Whether you are an experienced photographer looking to increase your portfolio, a beginner wanting to get the best from your camera, an avid mobile photo snapper or you just want to see some great sites and hear the stories behind them, I look forward to seeing you.
Our four walking tours showcase different aspects of London.
The Time Traveller's Walk - Mondays and Thursdays
On your Time Traveller's Walk see the rich maritime history of Greenwich (a UNESCO World Heritage Site), the modern architecture of Canary Wharf and the trendy street art of East London. We'll even travel across time zones and walk under the River Thames!
The Royal Parks Walk - Sundays
The Royal Parks walk takes you on a leisurely journey through four of London's Royal parks. On the way we'll seek out Lord Nelson's spare nose, feed the squirrels (and maybe some parakeets), see if the Queen is at home, pass Number 1 London, visit the Victorian splendour of 'Albertropolis' and stand under a blue whale.
The South Bank Walk - Saturdays and Wednesdays
The South Bank walk is a lively walk which packs in many of London's most recognisable landmarks, including two of UNESCO's World Heritage Sites. See the largest four faced clock tower in the world, Europe's largest Ferris wheel, the EU's tallest building, Shakespeare's Globe (and where his brother is buried), London's 1000 year old market and where polar bears swam in the Thames.
The North 'n' South Walk - Tuesdays
On your North 'n' South photo walking tour you'll see London's only round Church (it was in The Da Vinci Code), the oldest object on the streets of London, the Queen's bodyguards, an art centre named after a sugar baron, James Bond's HQ, the Archbishop's home and a tunnel full of graffiti.
