You will hear many fascinating stories that bring back to life the medieval pilgrims, notorious con artists, soldiers, women husband hunting, thrill seekers and royalty that once also walked these quirky backstreets. Queen Victoria the nineteenth century British Empress who ruled a quarter of the world is everywhere on this walk as one would expect of an area still named after her. She like everybody else we will discuss on this walk will help you understand why people leave the comfort of home to travel and what you share in common with them.

I have lived in London all my life and prior to turning 50 worked in a variety of management roles in both the private and public sector. My Airbnb walks have enabled me to use my long and extensive life experience to share my love of London History and London now with fascinating guests from around the world.

Destinations

Our walk starts opposite Westminster Abbey and mostly avoids the busy modern Victoria Street which links the start of our walk with the end of the walk near Victoria Station at Eccleston Yards. Instead we walk down quaint and historic back streets. There are many clues here about the History of Travel. These clues are easily missed by those in a rush. We however will be taking the time to hear all these voices from the past.

It's the best Airbnb Experience I have ever had. Terry is knowledgeable and friendly. The way he articulates how people travel in different periods really changed the way I see the roads and public places in London. Highly recommend!

We live local and signed up for the Investigate Travel tour to get to know better of the history around the area we live in. Terry was a great guide, thoughtful route, and good stories. Would recommend for visitor or local!

Terry has deep knowledge of London's history. Do not worry if you are not familiar with British history, Terry makes it easy to understand. He is an engaging person and knows many different cultures. No matter what your origins are, you will definitely find something that is interesting for both you and your guide.

Absolutely fantastic tour! Terry was knowledgeable about so much and I wish the tour could've been longer. We could've listened and talked with him for hours. There were 7 of us participating and Terry made sure to speak with everyone in the group individually. The group was made up of people from the US and Australia so Terry asked us all lots of questions about how things worked where we were from and then compared it to his perspective. That really made the tour feel personal and connected. I was nervous about the pace because one of my family members moves a bit slowly but Terry would wait up for everyone before he began speaking about the next subject, making sure everyone was able to hear and be involved. Would highly recommend his tours, especially for the great cost. Next time we visit London we will definitely be booking another tour.

Terry's walking experience is always very unique and different from others. He is super knowledgable about British history and London (a life-time Londoner). He is also a great teacher in telling stories that reveal another life about culture and history in London. These stories about why people travel, how people travel and how this transforms human beings and lives are fascinating tale relevant to everyone in the age of continuous discovery of the world and oneself. A must-do for both locals and visitors!
