If you are in London, whether you adhere to Marx’s ideas or not, it is worth participating in Marxwalks. Stories well told, ideas clearly explained, places worth knowing- all in all a wonderful experience!

Our guide Dr Khoo was amazing. His knowledge was boundless and he presented it in an interesting way peppered with humor. Definitely a fine way to spend a Sunday morning/early afternoon. At 10 pounds it's also great value!

St. James's
Perennially fashionable since the days of Henry VIII,
the aristocratic “Clubland” of St James's is a premier
destination for high end craft and bespoke design.
Here you’ll lose count of the Royal Warrants (which
indicate that the Royal Family patronizes the
establishment) seen in shop front windows, even during
a short stroll to bordering Green Park or St James’s
Park. With the brightly lit and constantly buzzing

We start in Piccadilly walk around Soho and end up, usually, in the British museum. Each guide takes a slightly different route.
