Kings Cross Walk Reviews

What a fantastic experience! Our guide was so knowledgeable and opened our eyes to things we'd walked past many times. You don't have to be a tourist to benefit from one of these walks! A Boucher Pye

Ian was informative, knowledgeable, succinct and gave a very interesting tour. He got everything just about right - no information overload and timed to perfection and took us to hidden nooks and squares we did not know existed as well as the historical background. Excellent. S Hewins Dec-2019

Ian, our guide, was very informative. I thought I knew the area quite well but there are hidden areas that are just delightful. He covered the history of the area. It's amazing how you can walk around an area on your own and actually miss these 'gems'. Well worth doing. Not a strenuous walk at all. Would recommend. R Preston Dec-2019

Really interesting walk with an extremely knowledgeable guide. Shall definitely check out their other walks. T Broch Dec-2019

This is an interesting, informative walk around the Euston/Kings Cross area. I learned a lot even though I had worked in the area for 30 years. 7 or 8 main information stops, quite a short walk, took just over 90 mins. The leader Ian knows his stuff, easy to hear him despite the Central London ‘noise!’ Would recommend if you want to know more about this area/London, both past and present. A Sullivan Dec-2019

I have walked around this area for years thought I knew it pretty well. However I discovered a row of stunning C19 shops and a wonderful C19 terrace I had never come across before. When visiting old friends like the British Library and the mainline stations I discovered lots of new facts and saw them in a new light. The guides historical knowledge was superb, his approach was friendly and informative. S Molyneux Dec-2019

Thoroughly interesting and enjoyable walk with Ian. He is exceptionally knowledgeable and I learnt a great deal about what may be described as a lesser known part of London. Would thoroughly recommend this walk and look forward to going on other walks in the future. I Armstrong Dec-2019
