About Jane's London Walks

I offer alternative guided tours that encourage people to be more aware of our surroundings, as it's all out there hiding in plain sight. My friendly walks and talks are about subjects that inspire and intrigue me personally, not just lists of facts, figures and dates. I am especially interested in social and local history and how the ever-changing tastes in architectural design have altered our streets. These I often write about on my blog Jane's London here.

Overviews of all my tours and talks by location/theme can be found here

About me

I have lived in Islington, North London, since 1988. I am intrigued by its vibrant and layered history and, as an avid local historian, I have come to know the area very well, indeed many of my walks and talks centre around this area.
My guiding style is inclusive, open and friendly – I like to engage with the group I am leading and this leads to a marvellous knowledge exchange.
Every tour I offer is designed and thoroughly researched by Yours Truly – in fact, the research never stops, being amended or added to as new information comes to light.
The varied subjects I cover highlight the different facets of my personality and the things I am genuinely interested in, such as art and design, sculpture and architecture, pubs, parks, ghostsigns and advertising, all of which I use to tell the social history of an area.
Enquiries, suggestions and bespoke commissions are always welcome.
I hope to see you soon,
Jane
