|Educational Walks for Schools and Colleges|
We have been organising Guided Walks for schools and colleges for many years and have found that taking a London Walk provides a method of teaching history that is entertaining and stimulating.
We have packaged together a series of guided walks around London designed especially for the education market. We tailor the walks to fit in with each school class's course of study and the national curriculum.

We like as much notice as possible but can usually provide a walk at short notice if necessary. To proceed we need the title of the walk you require, the date, time and starting point, and an approximate idea of how many people will attend. It helps if you can also give a profile of the interests and age of your group, and how you want to fit the walk into the National Curriculum. Lunch can be taken at the Museum of London, Barbican, or Hay's Galleria in Southwark, all of which provide shelter.
