About the tour

Lockdown has given us all, country dwellers and city slickers alike, the chance to celebrate the natural world. London is officially an urban forest and a place famous for its green spaces - from large parks, formal gardens, private squares and spaces in between. These include river banks and canal sides, beloved of dog walkers, runners and cyclists. Join Antony in St James' Park to explore London's prettiest green space, see the famous Horse Guards Parade and enjoy unusual waterside views of Buckingham Palace.


Meet your local guide

Antony

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.

If Antony was a history professor at a university, his classes would all be full and have waiting lists! He is absolutely my favorite guide, combining great stories, accurate historical context, humor and beautiful sites to tour! Thank you for being lovely and brilliant, Antony!

Anthony was not only extremely knowledgeable in all sorts of ways, he's also a great entertainer and comes across as a genuinely nice guy, one who loves his city and knows it like the back of his hand! Excellent! Thank you!
