Most interesting tour I've been on in London. Thank you to John.

Very involved tour with the Scottish guide from JK's home town of Edinburgh. Great scenery, great walk and great fun. Would highly recommend this tour to any fans of the franchise. Possibly not for young kids though as there is a lot of walking.

I don’t know as your walkIng it isn’t something I’d want to do in the rain. I only booked a couple of days before going so I could check the weather.

Its about 3 hours, and you need to be able to pay for the Tube, but it doesn't have to be an Oyster Card. You can buy a ticket or use Apple Pay.
