Weekend Walking With Westminster Guides

Looking to do a bit of walking and exploring over the Easter weekend? You could do a lot worse than taking one of the new regular tours from our friends at Westminster Guides.

We know a few of these fine fellows personally, and can vouch for their ludicrously impressive knowledge of their chosen locale. They've got the chops to prove it, too; each guide has a university accredited qualification following a year's study of Westminster, which sets them apart from most other operators.

They also make it easy. No need to book. Just turn up on any given Thursday, Friday, Saturday or Sunday from April to June. Here are your options, at £8 per person for a 90-minute walk:

Gentlemens’ Westminster – Thursdays
A chance to learn about Gentlemens’ London & St James’s
Meets: The park exit to Green Park Tube, by the Statue of Diana.
Ends: Near Green Park Tube
Runs:  Every Thursday at 6.30pm

Westminster’s Top Ten – Fridays
The must-see sights for every visitor
