A semi-autonomous region in London, the City is famous for its shiny skyscrapers. What it is less known for is its central role in the world's slave-driven sugar trade. In support of the BLM movement we thought this was a fitting story to share, with one of our last stops being the sculpture that commemorates the abolition of the slave trade in 1807. Riddled with Roman ruins, ancient churches, and Dickensian alleyways, this promises to be a visually and historically stimulating tour!
We are incredibly lucky to have Antony Robbins show us around London! Writer, speaker, and broadcaster on BBC Radio London, Antony wears many hats. One he loves to wear most is his guide hat, having shown thousands around London, uncovering its mysteries and showcasing its beauties. He proudly wears the coveted Blue Badge, a mark of his touring prowess.
Get ready for something special. We’re travelling to London with no passport, no plane ticket and no luggage. And yet you’ll experience all the sights, sounds and stories with just your laptop, favorite snack and an amazing content creator.
The tour will last about 30 mins and will be live-streamed by your content creator directly from London. Forget about slideshows or pre-recorded videos, this is a live broadcast and anything can happen!
While on the tour you’ll be able to see a full screen video of your content creator and their surroundings, interact with them and other travellers through the live chat, see where you are in the world on a map and show your appreciation with a tip.
We are running these tours on a tip-supported basis to make them as accessible as possible. They are free to join, but you have the option to leave a tip during the tour.
The majority of your tip goes directly to support the channel, while the rest helps Heygo continue to build a place that brings the world closer together.
Reserve your spot by selecting a time to book. Once done, you’ll be able to see your reservations on your Trips page and we’ll send you an email confirmation with a link to join the tour.

London is a city with a specific character. Antony is the perfect guide to bring that character to life. He is a homegrown Londoner with a depth of knowledge in many fields - history, arts, entertainment, architecture, even gossip. So each live tour with him is an enchanting event.

It was great to see the streets of London, live and personal. Even though there were some technical difficulties, Antony didn’t get overly flustered and carried on with the tour, showing us some spots that we wouldn’t normal visit. Thanks! I’ll join up again 🙂👍🏻
