About the tour

Discover the hidden histories of WW2. Post-war re-building and gentrification have all but removed the evidence of the 1940 bombing of the capital, which claimed 20,000 lives. Our last tour dropped us off right across the river from this tour's starting spot in front of St Paul's cathedral. This famous part of town is home to London's famous cathedral and tells the dramatic story of the Blitz, filled with some lasting reminders of those darkest of days.

We are incredibly lucky to have Antony Robbins show us around London. Writer, speaker and broadcaster on BBC Radio London, Antony wears many hats. One he loves to wear most is his guide hat, having shown thousands around London, uncovering its mysteries and showcasing its beauties. He proudly wears the coveted Blue Badge, a mark of his touring prowess.

Antony has been guiding since Jan 2017


What to expect

Get ready for something special. We're travelling to London with no passport, no plane ticket and no luggage. And yet you'll experience all the sights, sounds and stories with just your laptop, favorite snack and amazing guide.

The tour will last about 30 mins and will be live-streamed by your guide directly from London. Forget about slideshows or pre-recorded videos, this is a live broadcast and anything can happen!

While on the tour you’ll be able to see a full screen video of your guide and their surroundings, interact with them and other travellers through the live chat, see where you are in the world on a map and show your appreciation with a tip.


Why are they tip-supported?

We are running these tours on a tip-supported basis to make them as accessible as possible. They are free to book and join, but you have the option to tip the guide during the tour.

Leaving a tip will help support the guides and allow us to offer tours in more places around the world. If you aren't able to leave a tip, then it would be great if you can share the tour with friends and family to spread the word.
