What you'll do

Exploring London on a tour like you have never seen. An intimate tour of London with a small group visiting each spot in the same way one would show a member of a family around, at your own pace and having loads of fun. ​ We will begin by exploring key black history landmarks within the city center...  ​Starting at Notting Hill, we will visit the celebrated Portobello Market then stop at the birth place of the Notting HIll Carnival to learn the real story behind the second largest carnival in the world.  We will make a stop at the Black Panther headquarters and take a few pictures on one of London's Most Instagram-ed streets. The tour will continue through central London and I will explain its sometimes forgotten past.  Then we will visit one of the most celebrated black markets (Brixton Market), the black servicemen war memorial, the Black culture archives and Windrush Square.  £3 of your ticket price goes to the Black Culture Archives. We will round up the tour with some African-Caribbean street food (optional and not included in the price).
