I highly recommend this walk, Jonnie has a vast knowledge of London history (he would be a wonderful teacher!) and has a way of making it both interesting and funny. Will surely be on another of his walks next time I will be in London.

What a fabulous tour we had! Jonnie was a great guide and told us about some hidden gems in the beautiful and captivating London. Jonnie made the history amusing and interesting, sharing some great stories along the way. I would thoroughly recommend this tour.

I've done two of Jonnie's tours and I can highly recommend. If you like to hear some history and some quirky fun facts about London with a passionate guide in a small group then you will love Bowl of Chalk tours!
