What we're about

Weekend photowalks, usually on Saturdays via scenic routes in Central, West and East London covering major landmarks as well as little known and interesting locations off the beaten path. Duration at a leisurely pace between 2-2.5 hours, depending on the group's size and structure.

Everyone is welcome to join.

The walks are designed for people new to London, but also for seasoned Londoners who do not mind a bit of trivia and interesting facts.

We also do one-off and seasonal events like festivals, carnivals and parades.

Our motto: London is not just for tourists.

Our members are from all corners of the world, so it's also about social and cultural exchange.
