Excellant night, my husband I have done quite a few tours, this one was the most informative. It was very different from the other tours i have been on.
There was not much walking but a lot of talking from our Guide "Cary" who was...More
The tour was great, and I really enjoyed the performance at the end. It was interesting to hear about how the peasant folk lived back in the dark days of London. A very affordable, fun evening experience—I would recommend it!
'Will' surely knew history, as he expertly narrated points, facts and stories from the common view and life of us serfs. Fully engaging and full of extra information.
The walking part is not too far or long but be sure to have a pint before...More

What a great tour from a passionate guide. Learned wonderful history with a unique perspective. The performance at the end was tremendous and did a great job of tying it all together.
Can’t recommend enough.
Went on a really great tour on Sunday night. The tour was led with wit, humour and great expertise of the history of London and ended with a great performance of a true story. Had a really enjoyable time and can't wait to see what...More
Part walking tour, part dramatic arts, and all starting and ending at a pub. Ive done many of the walking tours in London and this is the one I will recall the most. More standing than walking though - so be prepared with appropriate clothing.
Brilliant tour that completely makes you rethink history. A lovely walk with the most graphic commentary. The walk took over an hour but was not too far from the beginning so you don't need rambling boots. A lovely introduction to the area.
I thought I knew a fair amount of history but this event, walking tour and performance, concentrated on the living conditions and situation of ordinary people, peasants, in medieval times, so I learnt a lot whilst being entertained.
Even before the arrival of the instantly iconic Shard, the riverside scene in Southwark had moved well beyond any up-and-coming phase of development. For quite some time, locals and out-of-towners alike have loved browsing the boutiques of Bermondsey High Street, foraging through the bounteous stalls at centuries old foodie haven Borough Market, and flocking to the banks of the Thames to enjoy some of Britain's biggest
attractions such as Tate Modern and Shakespeare's Globe. Despite Southwark's many popular draws, instant calm can be achieved easily by turning down almost any side street. For more urban buzz, a quick stroll across famed bridges like the pedestrianized Millennium Bridge or the ever photogenic Tower Bridge yields access to the very core of Central London. And with London Bridge Station as this neighbourhood's main transportation hub, getting across town (or to anywhere in England for that matter) is a relative breeze.
