Georgian London Walk Reviews

Mary
My first guided tour was a veritable treat around Georgian Islington with the lovely Hazel who was as sunny as the day which was glorious. It was an interesting fact-finding mission around areas of my childhood. So interesting in fact that I went back the following day to have another walk around her points of interest and to explore the architecture along the Regents Canal in further detail!
Margaret
Georgian London walk around the Angel was a perfect way to spend a sunny afternoon. From the Regents Canal to Sadlers Wells and the New River, this area has so much history and so many stories. As always, Hazel kept us all entertained and involved, whether visitors to London or locals. We all learned something new.
Carol
5 stars. Actually, I’d have rated it even higher. Hazel is so friendly, and relaxed but professional. Humorous stories, factual information that you retain. Easy walking, you really see great areas of London on foot.

Georgian London Walk with amazing London tour guide Hazel from londonguidedwalks.co.uk on a hot Saturday day was such a treat! I joined this walk at the last minute and was not sure what to expect. However, I was so glad that I did! Hazel met our group of 11 at Angel Station, explained the rules and what we will be looking at and then set off around the area showing us the real hidden gems of architecture and telling the stories behind those landmarks. We learnt about how Georgian towns were developed, famous characters that occupied these parts, origins of few of today’s catch phrases and how to spot some characteristics while out around London. Hazel is an amazing guide, she kept us captivated throughout the whole walk, had humorous welcoming approach, answering all the questions we had. She has a great engaging skills keeping even young ones interested. I would recommend this particular walk and especially guide to all who has interest in the history of Georgian London. Thank you so much for enriching our knowledge of London!!!

“Great walking tour of Islington and Angel (off the main busy roads) by Hazel – she was great at engaging everyone on the our and sharing her expert knowledge. Learnt all about the Georgian ways of life, architecture, businesses and New River and Sadler Wells theatre. Highlights for me were the easily missed “Peelers’” graffiti and the Islington tunnel, which the Regents canal travels down. Very informative!”
Geoffrina
“An interesting circular walk taking in the Georgian history of the area with the social and architectural details. Hazel is a knowledgable and fun guide and a bit of rain did not put off the enjoyment.”
Alastair
“Hazel is a terrific guide and provides a really interesting insight into the Georgian period of life in London. She is extremely knowledgeable and communicates Her subject passionately. Lots to discover! I was particularly interested to see how astute she was about securing the live time information about a film shoot that was taking place en route – great for photo opportunities and an added treat to an excellent afternoon.”
Sue
“This was a very informative walk talking about Georgian London around the Angel and Islington, 90 minutes, more talk than walk just so you know. Really well done.”
Brenda
“Hazel the guide was brilliant. So informative. Thoroughly enjoyed despite the weather.”
Alice
“Really interesting and insightful tour with the wonderful tour guide Hazel. Highly recommended”
Helen
“A very informative and interesting guided walk with Hazel on a wet Saturday afternoon. I will be looking out for Mylne’s windows from now on!!”
Cathy T, Hammersmith
“Once again a fantastic walk with Hazel. I had no knowledge at all about this area and was fascinated to hear all that Hazel had to tell us. Hazel is a brilliant guide who is obviously passionate about her subjects. Highly recommended.”
Kathryn R
“Despite the weather proving extremely cold I really enjoyed this walk. Hazel was passionate about the history of this part of London but also brought in contemporary references. I learned a lot of interesting things and will definitely go back to this area to explore in my own time. Hazel was able to conjure up bygone eras in a fascinating tour.”
Barbara D
“From the outset it was easy to find the welcoming and effervescent Hazel. On a bright and blustery winter’s day there was just the right amount of walking and looking, and stopping and listening. Hazel’s knowledge of Islington, and indeed London history (and current events) went well beyond the subject of the walk; you learnt a lot without it feeling like a lecture. It was easy to talk with other people in the group, so you got another set of perspectives on London. Whether you were a Londoner born and bred, or a temporary visitor, there was something for everyone. All in all, a great afternoon out.”
Mary F
“A very informative and interesting guided walk. Hazel really opens your eyes and gives you a a new perspective on an area. Good pace and just the right amount of information to keep it interesting. Definitely recommended.”
