Literary and bibliophile walking tours in central London led by qualified guide and lecturer Anthony Davis MA (Oxon) MA (Lond), FSA. Anthony's 'thoroughly enjoyable' walks offer a unique perspective on London - exploring little known corners associated with the writers, creators and collectors of books from before the beginnings of printing to the present day.

I have been on several of Anthony's walks across London. He is an incredibly well-informed, erudite and engaging guide and has really helped to weave the story of London together for me.

We enjoyed an excellent walk following the trail of Nell Gwyn around Piccadilly and Pall Mall. Anthony certainly brings the Restoration period to life and we learnt a lot about Nell as well as other figures of the time including the always interesting Samuel Pepys....More

I went on Anthony's walks after an incredibly stimulating talk he gave at the University of London's book collecting seminars. The walk took in the area around Piccadilly and St James Square. Anthony knew an awful lot about the area and was extremely funny (I...More

Mayfair
Set beside some of London's best parks and home to
