Social & Evening Tours & Events

Our range of social tours help students become familiar with London in a fun and informal setting. From pub walks, Harry Potter & ghost tours, your knowledgeable Proscenium guide will bring each subject and district to life. The tours are a great opportunity for students to learn more about the history & culture of London, explore a different area, make new friends, and have fun along the way. The social tours and evening events can be included as part of your Social Programme, or booked exclusively for your student group.

Booking a tour, or a series of tours, exclusively for your college or university gives you the flexibility of choosing a date and time convenient to you. Want to book a tour that isn’t on our list? Our experienced and knowledgeable Blue Badge guides are experts on London, so please let us know if you would like us to devise a tour on a particular subject or area.


£12 per person (Min group size 16/Max 25)

JK Rowling’s story begins on a train – so your 2 hour evening walk starts at Kings Cross Platform 9 ¾. Be prepared to take a night bus and underground as Harry did, and weave your way around the magical London locations from the films: see the Leaky cauldron, walk into the darkside of The Prisoner of Azkaban, and flee the Dementors as you cross the wobbly bridge. Grab your invisibility cloak and your wand and away we go!


£12 per person (Min group size 20/Max 40) WALK ONLY

Follow the trail of the world’s first, and most infamous serial killer, in his old slashing ground – the East End of London. Step back in time to Autumn 1888, to murky fogs and creepy, gaslit alleyways. Your guide will track the murders and sift through the evidence in a case that terrorised London, baffled the Victorian police, and has fascinated people around the world. Afterwards, you can steady your nerves in The Ten Bells pub – the place where Jack the Ripper is believed to have stalked his victims – and see if you can work out the identity of the killer from the list of suspects.

Also available ending at Brick Lane with dinner in one of London’s best curryhouses – £32 per person.


£12 per person (Min group size 20/Max 40)

Tonight we follow Bond…James Bond and his creator Ian Fleming as we walk through the exclusive Mayfair neighbourhood. See Fleming’s home, his club, the bar that created that martini, his favourite shops and see the inspiration that made the villains, the beauties, and of course, the most famous secret agent in history: 007. Taken from the pages of the books that inspired the films, your guide will tell you all about the events in Fleming’s life that inspired the plots and characters of the legendary James Bond. Be shaken AND stirred.

Once London’s red light district, Soho has transformed itself into a fashionable and trendy place to live, work and shop. It’s London’s melting pot bubbling over, the exotic sights and smells of Chinatown and the wonders of theatreland side by side. Today, it’s the by word for style; in the 60’s it was the home of British pop music, and a century before that, it was the worst slum in London. See where Karl Marx lived; one of the most famous jazz joints in the world, and the site where the fight against cholera was won. On the way we will stop off at some of Soho’s most historical and charming pubs, making this tour social, as well as saucy.


£32 per person, including flight on the London Eye.

Be dazzled from your capsule aboard the London Eye, as you fly 450 feet above the Houses of Parliament, Buckingham Palace and the stunning City of London, laid out far below you. After your flight, take a stroll along the river on the South Bank, towards London Bridge, a riverside walk that is full of great pubs and some of London’s most iconic sights: The Tate Modern, St Pauls Cathedral, the Millennium Bridge, Shakespeare’s Globe theatre, the creepy Clink prison, and The Golden Hinde and see London’s most delicious market. We end at one of London’s oldest – and loveliest – pubs for a drink.  (Drinks not included)


£12 per person

Be afraid. Be very afraid! Come with us to the City of London, the oldest part of London, over 2000 years old, and full of history and horror. London is said to be one of the most haunted cities in the world and in the City you can understand why. At night the city is deserted. And spooky. Its narrow backstreets and alleyways are atmospheric and eerie and the perfect place to start our tour. Wander around with your guide and hear tales of the poor souls who are said to still haunt the area, a wispy figure here, a mournful wailing there. Listen out for the screams of the dead in Smithfield as your guide recounts stories of executions, cannibalism and murder. Settle your nerves afterwards with a drink in one of the old pubs in the area.


Price £12 per person

Explore the City of London, the oldest part of the Capital, and also the most modern. This contradiction makes this area one of the most interesting and exciting in London.  We start at The Bank of England, the famous monolithic institution, where all roads of the City converge. See the wonders of The Royal Exchange, and the home of the Lord Mayor at Mansion House. On the way we will see some of the most spectacular architecture in London from Lloyds of London, the ‘Gherkin’, to the new kid on the block, the Shard, the tallest building in Europe, reaching over 1000 feet into the sky. We stop en route for a drink at Leadenhall Market, a beautiful slice of Victorian splendour.
