Unseen tours- London

Unseen Tours is a “Social Enterprise working with homeless, ex-homeless and vulnerably housed Londoners”. They provide walking tours of different areas in London, but from a different perspective: instead of focusing on ‘canonical’ history (the deeds of important people), the guides tell the stories of ordinary people living in the area, and from a (former) homeless person’s point of view. That gives the tours an interesting turn.

I took the Brixton tour some time ago. I was especially interested in the vision of that particular area through different eyes. The tour was informative, and comprehensive. Maybe a bit too crowded, but it may be my fault, as I assumed we would be the only people taking the tour, which wasn’t the case. But we happened to meet other fellow teachers as well, and made contact with them, so a win-win situation in the end.

There is a booking fee for the tours charged at the time of booking.
