3 hours | from £40.00 pp
New around town, or just moved to London? There’s no better way to feel a home and get to know a new city than through its people, so why not join a like-minded local to explore the city and get a feel for what it’s really like to live here. Whether you’d like to get properly acquainted with your new neighbourhood or you’d like to discover the side of London which relates to your hobbies and interests, your local will reveal the London that’s loved by its locals to you, not the one you see on postcards and at tourist hotspots. Immerse yourself in the local life of the area you’re now calling home, discover the places loved by the community, eat and drink in the bars, coffee shops and restaurants that the locals do and ask any questions you have about London life! You’ll get a feel for the real London, and make a new local friend along the way who’ll share with you their experiences, tips and recommendations on life in the capital.

Whether you’d like to immerse yourself in the neighbourhood you’ve recently moved to, or you’re hoping to find a side of London’s personality that matches your hobbies and interests, your local will design a personalised experience that suits your requirements. 

If you’d like to really get acquainted with the area you now call home, your local will design an experience in your neighbourhood, which they themselves also know well. Discover its personality, the community spots and local institutions which are beloved by residents and the bars, restaurants and coffee shops which will become your go-to local favourites!  

Ask any questions you have about the area, get recommendations for places to eat, shop and relax and get to know its culture and history as you explore the streets and stop by various eateries, bars and venues. 

If you can’t wait to discover a London that matches your interests and hobbies, your local will take you to places across the city that you’ll love. For example, perhaps you love indie cinema? Your local will share with you the most unique independent cinemas and film clubs with you, as well as giving you the low down on pop up screenings and film collectives in your area.
