What we're about
Welcome to London Social Walks, formally known as Unseen Tours. This group is all about Walking, Socialising, and having Fun in London!
We are a multi-award-winning not for profit social enterprise offering walking tours of London led by homeless and/or vulnerably housed individuals. We have co-constructed every aspect of the tours with the guides themselves, showcasing their personality, creativity and resourcefulness.
If you're new to London, this is a great chance for you to make new friends and find out more about this amazing city. If you’ve lived in London for a while, you surely don’t want to miss the occasion to meet new people and discover the greatest secrets that even most Londoners don’t know about!
Each of our tours is incredibly unique and eye-opening, and it will give you the opportunity to see the city from a totally unusual perspective. Our aim is to show London’s historical and cultural quirks in a different and entertaining way. The issues of homelessness are also covered to make a point about the state of the world we live in and highlight social injustice. Crucially, our tours are not tours of the homeless but, rather, WITH them.
So please join us for one of our regular walks which conclude in a hand-picked pub!
We operate on a ‘pay as you feel’ basis: our guides haven’t set a price, because YOU will be the one doing it! (Yes, they are this confident that you are going to love it! ;) Also, all of our tours have a 5 star rating on Tripadvisor). So at the end of the tour you will decide how much it was worth for you. Our guides rely on contributions from amazing people like you to take care of their daily needs!
