London with a Local was created in 2018 out of a desire to bring something different to those visiting (or living in) this wonderful, hectic, ever-changing City. We wanted to provide the best quality tours at a price that works for everyone. London is expensive – believe us, we know. Our aim was to provide at least one part of your time here where you feel like you are truly getting your money's worth. London With A Local is made up of a mix of born and bred Londoners, who can give you a picture of how it feels to grow up in the midst of the chaos, and those who decided to become Londoners after visiting as a tourist and falling in love. They combine a knowledge of the secrets that have been passed down through generations, with the hunger and excitement that comes with embracing a new place as your home. Our tours, of course, visit the iconic architectural structures that London the most recognisable city on Earth, but also allow a peak behind the curtain, away from the glitz and glamour of the West End, to give you the opportunity to see the “real” London, far from the tourist trap souvenir shops, to where the true treats and treasures, so often hidden away from tourists, reside. In short, we want everyone who gets the opportunity to join us on a tour, to feel like they are getting to know the essence of this great city. As well as experience in guiding and a knowledge of the history and politics of Britain, our expert guides all come from a performance background. We are actors. We are musicians. We are comedians. We are dancers and directors. Above all, we are storytellers and our aim is not just to reel off a load of dates that will be forgotten in a split second, but to paint you a picture of the people and events that built the foundations that we tread upon.

Tour description

When night falls in the city and mist settles in the streets, London becomes a very different place.

Londoners of old rise from their slumber and the spirits of the past return to haunt the living, but its not just the dead that you need to fear. For every patriotic hero, there must be villain and London has certainly had its fair share of those.

Join us as we explore the darker side of this city, encountering the serial killers, gangsters and monsters, both malevolent and murderous who have risen from the shadows to find infamy on these streets.
Along the way we will stop at Cleopatra's Needle, Great Scotland Yard, Banqueting House, Horseguard's Parade, St James Park & Green Park.

The tour finishes at Green Park Station.

Please note, groups larger than 6 and any educational groups will need to get in touch to arrange a private tour, as they will not be able to join the public tour

Did the ghost tour with Bobby, an incredible storyteller and amazing tour guide. It managed to make me feel spooked in the middle of London (not easy) and was one of the best tour guides I 've ever had!

Although it was raining when the tour started, Bobby was very kind and fun! It was such a different tour than the usual and I think that, because of that, it was much more cool than we had anticipated! Would definitely recomended!
