Our lovely guide gently walked us around the Kings Cross development sharing interesting facts and stories. This is an area I know reasonably well and it was delightful to gain additional layers of knowledge. This is the first guided walk I have been on in London. But it won't be the last, a thoroughly excellent afternoon.

I thoroughly enjoyed the King's Cross walk with Daniel and learnt so much about this newly developed part of London. Daniel is a very knowledgeable and engaging guide, with a good sense of humour. These tours are highly recommended for both Londoners and visitors, and you will go away more enlightened and knowledgeable.
