Literary London Tour

London is the home to some of the greatest stories ever told. The Literary London Tour is 2 hour guided walk that takes great literature off the page and onto the streets of London, visiting both literary and real life locations.

You will be introduced to the London known by Chaucer, Shakespeare, Dickens, Keats, Johnson and the great diarist Pepys. By walking the streets that these great writers walked and seeing the buildings and streets that featured in and inspired their stories and lives, you can see London through the eyes of your favourite authors and characters.

The Literary London Tour will take you off the beaten track to discover little known areas of London such as the only surviving part of Marshalsea Prison where Charles Dicken’s father was imprisoned, and Little Dorrit Court, named after little Amy Dorrit.

You will also visit world famous locations including St.Paul’s Cathedral and the Globe Theatre, a replica of the theatre which was home to the great Bard, William Shakespeare.
