Welcome to Short Walks London

Rob at STJ cropped

I’m Robert French, a qualified guide for the City of London and Clerkenwell and Islington.  I love taking groups of people around these areas, drawing out nuggets of fun and frollicks from across the centuries, turning down narrow alleys and hidden courtyards, telling the stories of quirky characters and goings-on, as well as looking at some of the delightful buildings and gardens that London has to offer.

Why not incorporate a walk into a work awayday, or with a bunch of mates at the weekend?  Tailoring and taverns positively welcomed!

Recently completed walks include The Great Fire of London, Magna Carta, River of Life and Death, Charles Dickens’ City, The Newspapers and Naughtiness of Fleet Street, Alleyways East and City Nooks and Corners.
