The Nursery Rhyme Tour of London

This unique tour of London is one like no other.   Explore the alleys and backstreets of the oldest part of London and learn the history of this great city through its Nursery Rhymes.

We will see some of the most famous buildings in the world as well as getting away from all the tourists as we explore the ancient streets usually only visited by Londoners.

In days gone by it could often be a dangerous and even deadly pursuit to talk politics or news to your friends and neighbours incase you were speaking to or overheard by an informer or spy.

To get round the problem, people would spread news and gossip by dressing up the meanings of what was being said so that their true meanings could be more easily denied to the authorities.

In other cases casual past times or horrific events were put to verse to be passed down through the ages.

Centuries later, these events are remembered as the nursery rhymes that we all sang in childhood around the world, some of which with much toned down and child-friendly lyrics.

Join us on this special personal tour and get a unique look at London as well as learning the true meanings of those nursery rhymes and places and events that inspired them.
