And Did Those Feet .... Guided Walks

Mean Time Walking GUIDED WALKS  
Our current equipments and mobile broadband aided presentations might make us appear a young and modern group but actually we have been organising Walking Tours in and around London since the late 1970's. Our philosophy is to provide a very high academic standard while making the walks entertaining. We attempt to make the past seem real and are as interested in how the past is rediscovered and interpreted as in a bare or anecdotal description of the past.

We organise archaeological, historical, literary and local history walks in and around London for groups, societies, social clubs,.and schools and colleges.

Many of the walks are given by Kevin Flude who is an archaeologist who has worked at the Museum of London and the Victoria and Albert Museum. Otherwise we use archaeologists, museum curators and others who have a profound history of London at their commands. Look at our Walks List for a complete list of walks. Or the Walks for Schools and colleges for our walks for schools and colleges. See below for a longer history of the our walks.

  Citisights of London Walking Tours  

Kevin and his fellow archaeologist Paul Herbert set up Citisights of London (and Cultural Heritage Resources) in 1982. Both were working as archaeologists for the Museum of London, and gave occassional walks around the City excavations. They soon realised that a wider public existed for their special brand of archaeological tour and so set up a series of walks from the Museum of London. The walks presented to the public the very latest archaeological discoveries delivered in an entertaining, and informative fashion.

The success of the walks was due to the enthusiasm of guide and customer alike, and they soon expanded from the original archaeological core to provide a unique and complete guide to London. Louise Nicholson's Definitive Guide to London (pub. The Bodley Head) reported:

'Kevin Flude and his bright team of historians and archaeologists lead exemplary walks that reveal London's growth and the latest views and discoveries that contribute to its complex and exciting history. Their dozen walks, bursting with good information and vitality, range from historical themes (Roman, Medieval, Victorian) to London stars (Shakespeare, Pepys) and areas (S. Kensington, City, Soho). Top quality; not a dull second. To take all of them would be an ideal London introduction....'

Citisights' built on the success of walks and established a programme of walks, visits, tours, conferences and holidays which lead to American travel writer Arthur Frommer placing Citisights among the '7 major players' around the world in which the discerning customer: 'the readers of books, the lovers of art, the collectors of degrees ..... don't have to suffer brain death while touring'.

The founding partners specialist knowledge led to the production of Interactive Videos on the history of London, an innovative guide book to the history of London published by Virgin Books, a tape guide to the City of London, and other booklets and guides.

In 1989 the partners took over the management of the Old Operating Theatre, Museum and Herb Garret and have since more than doubled the entrance figures, won a Gulbenkian Award for 'outstanding achievement' and transformed the Museum.
