About Us

a few words about who we are...

                                                                                                                                                                                                 

We are a walking tour company focusing on the history of Women in London.

Join us to learn their stories, struggles and successes!

Most of the women we learn about in history fall into the category of Queen and Suffragette. We are taught that some women ruled, most had children and eventually got the vote. Up until recently, this is the narrative that history has presented to us. Our walking tours are here to show you there is more to uncover.

Concentrating on the men in history is half the story.

W
omen actively changed and affected history, not just as queens, and suffragettes. But as nurses, politicians, writers, factory workers, teachers, mathematicians… the list is endless.

O
ur world today is built upon the actions of these women and we hope our walking tours will help to tell their stories.

We have two main tours ‘The Women of Westminster’ and ‘The Women of the East End’.

Both of our walking tours focus on a range of women throughout history, from all types of backgrounds and classes. We include history of women in nursing, education, royalty, campaigners and reformers as well as much more.

Our Guides

We are experienced, professional and passionate guides who will show you the history behind the Women Of London and present it to you in an interesting way!  

Becky Laxton-BASS

COMPANY DIRECTOR AND Freelance TOUR GUIDE

London born and passionate about history, tour guiding seemed like the perfect job. Becky began guiding over 4 years ago whilst studying History at University and made it her full time job once graduating. The only downside was that she felt not enough Women's History was being discussed. So in 2018 she launched Women Of London to challenge this. Now in charge of the tour bookings, organising the social media pages, she spends most of her time researching new tours and the history of women. Becky also finds time to deliver the walking tours when possible.

When she’s not writing, she’s tourguiding around all parts of London since 2012.
