|We are a small company based in North
West Kent that specialises in tours based around historical figures,
incidents and events. We believe that history is best explored by
retracing events in the locations where they actually took place.
The majority of Historical Footsteps Tours are centred around London
and southern England and range in duration from 2 hours to a full
day. We believe that clients deserve as much of our personal
attention as possible and, therefore, restrict our group sizes for
walking tours to 10 people and the full day tours to 23 people. The
majority of our tours are devoted to areas of historical interest
that are covered by few if any other tour operators. Some of our
tours such as the Jack the Ripper walking tour cover a greater
number of sites than many other operators.
Most tours will operate all year round. Please keep watching our
website for details of our new tours as they are developed and
Jack the Ripper Walking Tour
During the late summer and autumn of 1888 a series of horrific
murders took place in the East End of London that became known as
the Whitechapel Murders. The murderer, who was given the title
of Jack the Ripper was never apprehended. Relive this 'Autumn
of Terror' with an Historical Footsteps walking tour through the
streets of Whitechapel and Spitalfields.
The London Blitz Walk
In 1940, London and many other cities in Britain suffered a
period of sustained air raids that tested the determination and
courage of the civilian population of this country. Although most of
the physical damage to buildings has been repaired it is still
possible to see evidence of that period in our history. Why not join
one of our Historical Footsteps Tours for a two and a half hour
guided walk through some of the areas affected by the Blitz.
Tour group numbers are limited to a maximum of 10 people. Tours
start at Bank Underground Station.
The Kray Twins Tour
In the East End of London in 1933 twin boys were born. Their names
would become well known throughout London and the rest of Britain as
notorious gangsters in the second half of the 20th century.
Ronnie and Reggie Kray spent much of their childhood and teenage
years in Whitechapel and Bethnal Green. They achieved their first
taste of fame as boxers but they are more famous for their gangland
activities and crimes that included the murders of George Cornell
and Jack 'the Hat' McVitie.
The Invasion Of Britain 1940
The Battle Of Britain Tour
Anyone looking out to sea from Dover in 1940 could clearly view the
colossal German armaments along the French coast 25 miles away and
witness overhead the daily troublesome Luftwaffe flights probing
Britain's defences. Nobody doubted that it would be long before the
Germans tried to invade Britain and it was obvious that, as a
preliminary to such an invasion, Britain's air defences would need
to be destroyed and its Royal Air Force (R.A.F.) rendered
