Choose your London Photo Walk

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.​
Start and End at a Convenient Location

Each walk starts and ends at a convenient London tube station (the start location is detailed in the walk description). Please note that whilst the walks are generally on the flat, there will be stairs to negotiate.

FREE Photography Tips and Walk Guides

Each guest receives a comprehensive guide giving you a brief history of the sites visited on your walk plus an indispensible guide on photography with tips on composition, exposure, lens choice, creative controls, filters, shooting panoramic images and more.

Professional Guide

As your guide and professional photographer I'll be giving you some of the history behind the sites we will visit plus hits and tips on getting the most from your camera to capture memorable images of my home city.

What to Bring

You can enjoy the walk without a camera if you wish (you can get some great photos with your mobile phone). Any camera will do, and if you have them bring spare charged batteries and an extra memory card. Check the weather forecast (links on the FAQ page) and bring suitable clothing.
