Walking tours


We give you plenty of options to make connections with fellow students while you’re away from home.

I just fell in love with London, I think the architecture is beautiful – it represents both the historical side of London and it's modernity. It's a very diverse city.

Alessandra Huamani, International Relations, 2018

In collaboration with the LSE Language Centre, we provided students with the opportunity of a guided tour of some of London's most famous attractions. These walks are free of charge and take around 1.5 hours. 

These walks are a great ice-breaker to meet other Summer School students and make new friends.

If English isn't your first languange this is the perfect opportunity to practice your English. You should also check out our Preparatory English courses which are designed to help you familiarise yourself with academic English so that you can excel during your time at LSE.

With these walking tours, you'll be able to learn more about London while exercising your conversational English skills.

These are free events, tickets will be released the week before each event.

The Royal London Walk took students on a historical journey, beginning at Green Park Station and going past Buckingham Palace, the Houses of Parliament, Westminster Abbey and Big Ben. The walk ended at Westminster Station, but not before taking students to some of the oldest shops in London, homes of British Royalty and a stroll through the Royal Parks.

City of London Landmarks Walk

The City of London Landmarks Walk offered students a more cultural adventure, starting at Sir Christopher Wren’s monumental St. Paul's Cathedral, students walked past the reconstructed Shakespeare’s Globe theatre and through London’s contemporary sights, such as the Tate Modern and Borough Market. Students were able to take in the beautiful London skyline before ending the walk at London Bridge Station.
