Lose yourself in the winding streets and labyrinthine history of Soho. From nobility, musicians, artists, and entertainers, Soho has played host to all manner of exciting events over the centuries. Charley will show you hidden gems including the site where a young Mozart first wowed audiences in Britain, the dance halls that stayed open at the height of the Blitz, and the first place in London you could get a cappuccino.
London is a potpourri of different cultures - more than a third of the city's population is foreign-born. Charley fell in love with London as a teenager and always enjoyed showing her city to others. Her first job out of University was guiding on the open-top buses. And since then, there has been no turning back. After 6 years of guiding across major tour companies (EF, BBC, and secret food tours), she decided to kickstart her own venture. On her tours, you might just find yourself bumping into a surprise. "I had a lookalike of Prince William on my bus! People thought it was the real one," she laughs. The surprises don't stop there. "I introduce people to landlords of my favourite pubs and prioritize family-owned local business over the popular chain businesses," Charley quips. For Charley, drinking in the Beefeater's secret pub within the Tower of London features as one of her best experiences in the city. She's wearing multiple hats, working part-time selling ham and cheese at Borough Market (London's oldest and best food market), while studying to be a psychotherapist. Whoever said you can't have it all?
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 45 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.
