#London Walkers Review #LondonWalks: Oxford & Cotswolds "A Fabulous Day Out & Well Worth the Money"


-->



Mary, Fiona, Maxine & Noel in the London Walks office write… On Mondays we'll be sharing reviews of our London Walks written by London Walkers. Firstly, THANKS to all who have written to us down through the years, your kind words are greatly appreciated! Our guides don't solicit these reviews on our tours – we believe that this would be a waste of your time. That's what makes these reviews all the more special – they have been sent to us by genuine London Walkers who have given up their valuable time to drop us a line or two, or leave a comment on travel message boards & websites. 





Oxford & The Cotswolds

We have done several walks with London Walks (and they have all been exceptionally good) but this was our first 'day trip' so we were a little apprehensive. It turned out to be an absolutely fantastic day and worth every penny we paid. It is a jam packed day with two completely different walks (one in each location) and our guide, Richard, was beyond good. He has a great speaking voice and went out of his way to make sure we had a great experience - he even made sure we were standing under shade when we stopped to hear his commentary.

One word of caution, we did this on a hot sunny day and it is all outdoors on mostly uneven terrain (cobblestones etc) so if you have any health or mobility issues just check with the guide before you start out. At one point we walked down a narrow path and through a field of cows (to demonstrate the quirky rights of ramblers), it wasn't my favorite part of the tour as there were stinging nettles to navigate, but I am sure Richard would have an alternative route for those that could not do it due to mobility issues.

A fabulous day out and well worth the money.

Thanks Jas88!

In & Around #London… Red London #Photoblog

The Monday Photoblog!


Monday is mute on The Daily Constitutional (well, almost mute) – because Monday is the day when we post five images captured in and around London by London Walks Guides and London Walkers.

Collated on a theme or an area, if you've got some great shots of our capital and want to join in send your pictures to the usual address.


The In & Around London photoblog is taking a short summer break and will return in September 2018.
