a few words
We are a Women’s History Walking tour company created by experienced tour guides. After many years of taking people on tours around London we decided it time for a company that approaches London’s history through the achievements of Women.
Women of London aims to show visitors and locals that Women’s History can be found everywhere.
We offer a range of Women’s History Walking Tours throughout the year, which are also available, upon request, for Private Tours.
