What To Expect

Seven Dials

30 minutes • Admission Ticket Included

Denmark Street
Learn the musical history of this street and it's links to a famous wizard. On the way we discover a secret garden, look for celebrities at a stage door (we don't actually see any but we have some fun producing our own paparazzi-style images). We also explore one of London's most colourful buildings and get a variety of shots at this fascinating location.

60 minutes • Admission Ticket Free

The British Museum
Our tour finishes at The British Museum where you are free to explore by yourselves or travel on via tube (Tottenham Court Road and Holbourn station are 5 minutes walk away). We use this final stop to shoot some interesting images of the outside of the building; you are then free to explore and photograph inside by yourselves if you wish.

I have listed some of the sites that we will see on this tour and hinted at others. Other points of interest are included and I do encourage you to 'wander off' if you see a photo opportunity. I make sure we have each other's numbers so you can catch us up if you suddenly find yourselves lost.

Wonderful experience

Photography and fun facts about London history - I could not ask for a better day. Mike was friendly and helpful and full of the type of great London trivia that I love. I picked up some tips to improve my photos - just hope I can remember them all!
A wonderful experience not to be missed

We just had a marvelous day with Mike. He is informative, warm, friendly and extremely helpful. I have limited experience with my camera. He assisted me and taught me things that I will use going forward. We have been to London many times and he showed us sights we had not seen before. I would highly recommend Mike and his photography tour to all - experienced and novice photographers. Not to missed. Thank you Mike for a terrific day!
Terrific tour

This tour was an excellent combination of photographic instruction and a historical walk. The guide, Mike, is a very good photographer who offered valuable insights and technical suggestions that I found extremely helpful. And he has a great knowledge of the history and current developments of the area we were walking through--he pointed out all kinds of interesting things that I would not have noticed or known about if I'd been on my own.

I really enjoyed the time I spent on this tour--it was definitely a highlight of my time in London, and I would highly recommend it!
Great Time

Enjoyable photography tour through the back streets of London's West End

A very enjoyable tour through the lesser known back streets of the West End of London. Mike clearly knows the area well and could provide some interesting background information and facts. As a photographer, Mike was able to provide useful photography tips and guidance to the attendees on the tour, as well as being flexible with the tour and make allowances for the interests of the attendees.
