Welcoming change

Cities are always in flux.  None more so than London, one of the most diverse and vibrant cities in the world.  Our mission is to keep Londoners’ relationships with London's unique, surprising and special places alive and well.

This won’t happen by simply ossifying our heritage in museum displays.  It will happen by bringing the history, stories and character of places to life in new, exciting and relevant ways.

Explore Soho with our app

Our award-wining GPS-based app gives an audio tour of London’s most bohemian neighbourhood.  As you walk the streets, Soho Stories knows where you are and whispers its hedonistic history in your ear.

In 2013, the app had a special update to include material on infamous Soho entrepreneur Paul Raymond.

Download the Soho Stories app FREE from the App Store and on Android

Roadtrips by Routemaster

Get a new perspective on London's neighbourhoods and explore the many faces of the capital with our new roadtrips. Riding on a restored Green Line Routemaster coach you'll hear from London writers and personalities, each giving a personal take on what makes our capital the unique place it is.

London Lates

Each of our one-off late night events explores an important London location. We pick up themes from the place and its history; bringing it to life in entertaining and informative ways. 

So far, we've enjoyed Hallowe'en at magnificent seventeenth century mansion, Ham House in Richmond and given a fresh take on fabulous 1950s dance hall, the Rivoli Ballroom in Brockley. Our London Lates have included everything from ghost hunting and film making to immersive cinema.

Unique events inspired by London places

Installations and expeditions, immersive lates and dining experiences, behind-the-scenes tours and out-of-hours events, our programme aims to surprise and delight.

Working with partners including The Art of Dining, The Idler Academy, The Amy Grimehouse and Last Tuesday Society we create innovative events where the old meets the new.
