What to expect

Get ready for a surprise and discover the wacky parts of London's history while walking around the city center. Admire the famous highlights while learning quirky facts and funny stories. This self-guided audio tour is created by a true Londoner who loves to share the wonderful history of his city with you.

You can start the tour at any time you like and press pause whenever you need some extra time or want to take a break. You can enjoy the tour on location or at home virtually with VoiceMap's Continuous Play function which disables the GPS playback. Starting in Convent Garden you will discover the origins of this name. Following you will hear the story of a drink you wouldn't associate with England, and discover how the Americans stole coffee from the British.

Find out what is the only street in London that confuses taxi drivers, see London's most notorious 18th-century brothel, the last Victorian gas lamp in the city, and London's hidden Italian-style square. It does not matter if this is your first time in London or you are a local, you will learn something new for sure!
