`Travel is fatal to prejudice' Mark Twain American writer

This interactive history of travel experience takes you on a journey through the backstreets around Victoria. You will hear many fascinating stories that bring back to life the medieval pilgrims, notorious con artists, soldiers, women husband hunting, thrill seekers and royalty that once also walked these quirky backstreets. Queen Victoria the nineteenth century British Empress who ruled a quarter of the world is everywhere on this walk as one would expect of an area still named after her. She like everybody else we will discuss on this walk will help you understand why people leave the comfort of home to travel and what you share in common with them.

I am a qualified City of Westminster Tour Guide (Westminster is the main tourist area in central London ) and run two other popular Airbnb experiences Explore Back Streets with a Historian Airbnb.com/experiences/90528 and Discover Hidden Sites with a Historian Airbnb.com/experiences/156182. When I am not guiding, I teach History in a central London college spending most of my time teaching about the British royal families of 400 to 600 years ago, the Tudors and Stuarts. I have lived in London all my life and prior to turning 50 worked in a variety of management roles in both the private and public sector. My Airbnb walks have enabled me to use my long and extensive life experience to share my love of London History and London now with fascinating guests from around the world.

Waar je naartoe gaat

Our walk starting at Parliament Square mostly avoids the busy mostly modern Victoria Street which links the start of our walk with the end of the walk at Victoria Station and instead takes you down back streets. Here clues easily ignored by those in a rush tell us so much about the last two thousand years of Travellers who have walked exactly the same streets that you will walk down.

We live local and signed up for the Investigate Travel tour to get to know better of the history around the area we live in. Terry was a great guide, thoughtful route, and good stories. Would recommend for visitor or local!

No matter what your origins are, you will definitely find something that is interesting for both you and your guide.

Absolutely fantastic tour! Terry was knowledgeable about so much and I wish the tour could've been longer. We could've listened and talked with him for hours. There were 7 of us participating and Terry made sure to speak with everyone in the group individually. The group was made up of people from the US and Australia so Terry asked us all lots of questions about how things worked where we were from and then compared it to his perspective. That really made the tour feel personal and connected. I was nervous about the pace because one of my family members moves a bit slowly but Terry would wait up for everyone before he began speaking about the next subject, making sure everyone was able to hear and be involved. Would highly recommend his tours, especially for the great cost. Next time we visit London we will definitely be booking another tour.

Terry's walking experience is always very unique and different from others. He is super knowledgable about British history and London (a life-time Londoner). He is also a great teacher in telling stories that reveal another life about culture and history in London. These stories about why people travel, how people travel and how this transforms human beings and lives are fascinating tale relevant to everyone in the age of continuous discovery of the world and oneself. A must-do for both locals and visitors!

The tour is about the Victoria area of London but the travel trends of the last two thousand years can be applied everywhere. changes both those who travel and those who meet travellers. This tour therefore explains why travel changes people. Hand sanitiser will be provided by the Host.
