The Tours

Tired of conventional city tours and looking for alternative ways of exploring London? Then come on our Unseen Tours, unique city walks led by homeless and formerly homeless guides!

Unseen Tours have been created to challenge as well as entertain, combining history with contemporary insights and anecdotes of street life. Crucially, they also help our homeless guides to make a living as they take the lion’s share of ticket revenue.

So come and see the well-known landmarks as you’ve never seen them before, and the tucked-away places no-one else knows through the eyes of our street friends - you may just end up learning more than you bargained for! And our tours are a bargain, at just £7 for students, or £10 a spin.

Click here to book tickets… Friday evenings are bookings only, but Saturday and Sunday you can be spontaneous and turn up on the day!

We also provide two free places per tour for people who are unable to pay and/or are accompanying someone as a carer. Please call 07514266774 or 07514266775, or email walk@sockmobevents.org.uk to reserve.

We have a choice of five routes, at the end of which your guide will point you to a historical local pub or cosy cafe. Our Unseen Tours are designed to appeal to Londoners old and new, students, families, tourists and eco-travellers alike. For more information on what’s covered on each tour, simply click on any of the areas that interest you, below.

When?

Unseen Tours happen at 7pm every Friday, and 3pm every Saturday/Sunday, rain or shine! Please note Friday evenings are bookings only. We also offer flexible group bookings at any time during the week for groups of five people or more, great for team building awaydays, school outings, or friends simply looking for an unusual, fun day out! Call 07514 266 774/5 or email walk@sockmobevents.org.uk to arrange.
