We had a great night on this tour, Will is super knowledgeable and encourages questions which shows he knows his stuff. We took our teens and they were delighted with the gruesome details and people from the past popping up along the way. I grew up in London and didn't know nearly anything about what he taught us! A real gem. Can't wait to hear about the next tour up their sleeves! Starts and finishes at a great place to have a drink too.

I loved this tour! I can honestly say that I learned so much about Southwark's not well-known history and about how ordinary people lived those days. The guide was telling the stories about the dark and gloomy parts of the life back then in a very fun and graphic way, which made it easier to imagine. The theatrical parts of the tour were also quite fun. It was a very cold night when I joined the tour, and they gave us mint tea to keep ourselves warm :) 100% recommend!

Really enjoyable if absolutely freezing night. Our guide was knowledgeable and funny, gruesome and detailed. I'm a South Londoner and really enjoyed the tour. I'll never look at Borough Market the same. Highly recommend
