Discover Quiet London with me
MONTHLY LONDON WALKS
Walk with me as we discover the quieter more beautiful parts of London. On these very special London Experiences we will wander the hidden streets and discover secret parks and leave the stresses of the modern world behind for a couple of hours.
How would you like to leave your stresses behind for a few hours and explore the beauty of London with me? How would you like discover new parts to this wonderful city, make new friends and learn a little more about the city around you?
Perhaps you are a seasoned Londoner looking to fall deeper in love with our great city, or perhaps you are a visitor or newcomer wanting to see the London that exists outside of the prosaic guidebooks, either way you will enjoy this series of monthly London walks.
About my London walks
I created my series of twelve London walking maps to share with you some of my favourite London ambles. The wanders I take if I want a prettier route from A to B, or if I want to soak up some inspiration or to get lost in photographing Georgian buildings and wisteria. These are the places I go when I want to remember that London has stood proud for two millennia and is infinitely greater than the sum of its parts and will outlive all of us.
Behind the relentless capitalist facade and the temples to consumerism of Oxford Street and Westfield lies another city, a place of achingly beautiful parks and elegant roads where traffic and people are not found. Hidden in plain view are limitless streets lined with understated, pretty buildings just sitting there hoping you will notice them.
The walks align with the months of the year, the seasonal cycle of London. Each walk takes place at a time of day and even a day of the week for when I think the location is at its most atmospheric.
The Chiswick walk was enormous fun. I learned lots about a part of London I didn’t know, walked the banks of the beautiful Thames whilst gazing at historic and higgledy-piggledy houses, and spent several hours in the wonderful company of Annabel who was the perfect host and guide. I would happily recommend Bleak House walks and will be booking some more in the new year.
About this Experience
I’m thrilled to tell you that I am now going to be running an exclusive one-to-one walk each month and one group walk. The group walks are limited to just six people and include a stop for tea and cake, or glass of wine and a packet of crisps, depending on where we end up.
Each walk will take around three hours in total, including a stop for a drink (included) but please allow extra time in case we run over.
It was WONDERFUL. Balm for the over-busy soul. And for once I didn’t have to organise anyone or anything and everything that was subtly organised was ‘top notch’. If you’re hesitating, go for it – you won’t regret it. ENJOY!
A monthly walk to meet some new friends, explore a part of London you may not know well, and walk just for the pleasure of walking.

Mayfair at christmas
An impossibly festive walk around Mayfair to see the twinkling Christmas lights and wonderful window displays.
We’ll end our walk and celebrate this most fabulous time of the year with a delicious drink in a glamorous Mayfair cocktail bar.
Dates for the 2020 walks will be released in the new year.
Bespoke & Solo Walks
Take a solo walk with me or book an exclusive walk for you and your friends and family. We’ll take one of my twelve walks together, or I can design something completely unique for you, if you prefer.
We can take our walk at any time, on any day of the week (including weekends), subject to my availability. I recommend that we take the walk for the month we meet but you are very welcome to choose a different walk instead.

Terms of booking
Please note this Experience is non refundable. If you are unable to attend for any reason you are very welcome to send someone in your place but please do let me know who is coming in advance.
If you have a chance to join one of the Bleak House Experiences, run, don’t walk to your computer to plan it. Don’t be afraid to ask questions and see how Annabel can accommodate you. She will definitely be the most gracious hostess.
