Royal London Coronation Walk Reviews:

This was an excellent walk and really got me in the mood for the Jubilee celebrations. Stephen was an excellent guide and took us to see really interesting things. The display of Commonwealth flags was amazing. I didn’t realise how many countries were in the Commonwealth and they were a sight to behold. We finished at Buckingham Palace which looked lovely in the sunshine and I really recommend this walk. Stephanie

Stephen our tour guide was brilliant. He had a very clear and pleasant way of telling us the history of the areas that we were stopping at. I am a Londoner and frequently up in the Victoria area but Stephen pointed out things that I had never noticed before and added interesting facts. A very enjoyable way to spend a Sunday afternoon.

What a fantastic way to spend a Sunday afternoon.Thoroughly enjoyed the walk, very informative and got me in the mood for the Platinum Celebrations.I felt that Stephen had done excellently planning both the content of the walk and also the route for so many roads were closed today. I would highly recommend. Looking forward to the next walk. Carolyn
