Local London Guiding Day is an annual event to offer free walks around London by local guiding organisations.
On Saturday 12th October four of London’s guiding associations will be offering free guided walks and this year our theme is Victorian innovation – “What did the Victorian’s do for us?”. The second half of the 19th century saw major breakthroughs in so many fields, paving the way for products and services that we now take for granted.
No booking necessary – just turn up. First walk 10am, last walk 4pm, walks on the hour, so it’s possible to visit all four areas in the same day.
