LEG was founded in 2004 by Dr Andy Duncan, historian and author of well-known London walking guides such as Walking London and Secret London.

LEG’s mission is to introduce as many Londoners as possible to the history and heritage of their amazing city.

How LEG works

LEG is designed to be as simple as possible.

Here are the main features:

  • 1 walk every two months
  • Repeated 9 times – 3 x Wednesdays, 3 x Thursdays,3 x Sundays
  • Just turn up – no booking required
  • 11am is the normal start time
  • Cost £15 pay on the day, in cash
  • Walks last about 2 hours, sometimes a little more (depends on speed of group, questions etc)
  • Walks take place whatever the weather
  • You are welcome to bring family/friends etc – no need to let me know first
  • Before each walk you will receive all the information you need:
    description, dates, meeting point, pre-planned TFL travel alerts, toilets at start etc and anything else relevant
  • Walkers need to be on the LEG mailing list to receive details of walks. The mailing list is now closed to new members.
