Sporting London Walking Tour
It’s often said the British invented or codified many of the world’s best sports. This walk takes you back to the origins of tennis, boxing, snooker/pool, rowing, boxing, cricket, rugby and, of course, soccer. Learn about bare-knuckle fighting and folk football. Visit the celebrated Olympic & Paralympic venues where Beach Volleyball, Road Cycling, the Marathon and Wheelchair Marathon took place, and the route of the Tour de France.
See some of London’s iconic landmarks while learning about sporting stories.
This tour can be a half day but we recommend booking a guide for a full day. Then we can meet your group and guide you around until departure, taking all the stress and uncertainty out of your special day. You may want to visit a sports venue.
