London Guiding Day

Local London Guiding Day – Saturday October 8th

This is the day when, across London, newly qualified guides are unleashed on an unsuspecting public.

The City Guiding “Class of 2022” will be providing free 60 minute tours every hour at least, hopefully every half hour, from 10 to 4.

The theme is “Leaving their mark” – about people, organisations and events that have left their mark on the City of London.

These will depart from outside the Co-op by exit 2 from St Paul’s Underground.

You may either just turn up or, to secure a place, may book via Eventbrite (for free): details at


There is a transport strike on the day affecting trains nationwide. You can, however, still get into the City. It is believed that the following are running:

Croydon Tramlink (doesn’t go to City but might help make a connection)
Docklands Light Railway
Elizabeth Line (some disruption)
London Underground (some disruption; Richmond and Wimbledon District line may be affected as these are part run by National Rail; also Wimbledon station is closed for engineering works)
Southern Railway (limited service, check on the day).

There may be a skeleton rail service by other rail companies. Bus services unaffected.

Check Transport for London and National Rail for information nearer the time.
