Thanks to jonnie for a great few hours touring some sights in central London we had never seen before, despite having lived in London for a number of years! Really found it very interesting and Jonnie was really easy going making it relaxed and fun.

I highly recommend this walk, Jonnie has a vast knowledge of London history (he would be a wonderful teacher!) and has a way of making it both interesting and funny. Will surely be on another of his walks next time I will be in London.
