We went on the Primrose Hill & Camden Town Walk last year, Jason was our guide and it was brilliant! We met outside Camden Town tube station and although the tour didn’t include Camden Market we did pass it en route to some lovely characteristic London streets .As we stood on the corner of one street Jason pointed out the house where Alan Bennett used to live where the “Lady in the Van” stayed in a van in his driveway! (Some of you will know there is a film out about this amazing story –the lead played by Maggie Smith).

The pastel coloured houses of Primrose Hill were very picturesque – I dread to think how much these houses were worth as it is a very exclusive area!

We also walked by the side of Regents Canal where we saw some unusual barges and a floating Chinese restaurant.

The view from Primrose Hill was amazing – despite living 30 mins by train from our capital I had never visited this area before!

Along the route Jason pointed out lots of interesting landmarks and recounted some funny tales.I have deliberately omitted some of the places/pics & info we were told so as not to spoil your walk should you book it!

The tour is approximately 2 hours long and starts at 11am on Wednesdays. Although we booked this walking tour via a special discounted offer it was well worth the full price of £10 (£8 concessions). There was approx. 15 people on our tour with a good mixture of age groups. Although I was with my husband there were quite a few people on their own. Jason made everyone welcome, spoke clearly so there was no problem hearing him and he encouraged everyone to ask questions during the tour.
The only part of this tour that may prove difficult for those less mobile was the walk to the top of Primrose Hill, however Jason pointed out a different pathway that had a more gradual incline.

I have included the link below which will give you details of all the different walks Jason & his team have to offer-we certainly can’t wait to go on another!

    The tours sound really good, I have done a City of London Ghost Tour which was fun.

    I used to live near London and didn't know that these tours existed. They look great. May well try one on a visit sometime. Thanks
