The cheapest way to see London is by walking

By walking, you can also explore hidden areas such as Lincolns Inn, Temple Court and the alleyways of the City.
Here you will find details and maps for 12 free self-guided walks, each covering a different area and “theme” of London. Simply choose the walk, print the details and go London sightseeing for free.
About the Walks
Things are always changing in London. Although many of the landmarks highlighted in these walks are hopefully going to be there for years to come, others may not be. Also, prices I have quoted are sadly bound to have risen over time.
I therefore try to occasionally check the walks and the prices of things and update the information provided. However, if you come across something I have mentioned on a walk or a price I have quoted that needs to be changed, I would be grateful if you could let me know.
The walks are deliberately not meant to be overly detailed as I don’t want to overload you with information. After all, you are probably on holiday!
Instead, they are intended to point out the key landmarks and provide you with just enough information to make the walks interesting.
- Personal Safety
London is a big city. As such, it has the usual problems such as street crimes and muggings. Although all walks take you through areas of London that are usually safe and generally busy with people, please do them in daylight hours. Besides, you get to see more of the sights that way!
