Walks & talks
Our free walks have been designed to help you discover the best of the Quarter. These are free for everyone to attend and there’s no booking required so you can take an impromptu walk whenever you fancy it. Lunchtime walks start at 13.00 and last for 45 minutes so if you’re taking a break from work, you’ll still have time to grab a bite to eat. And, when there’s too much history to cram into 45mins, we make it a longer walk starting at 18.00. Just meet our professional guides at our meeting point outside 55 Baker Street.
If our scheduled walks programme doesn’t fit your timetable, book a bespoke walk at a time and date that suits you. Incorporate into a team building day, impress clients or simply arrange for staff to familiarise with the local area. Members can enjoy two FREE bespoke walk every year, see our bespoke walks page for further details.
