Meeting Point: Finsbury Park Station

We’ll meet at the conveniently located Finsbury Park Station (on Victoria, Piccadilly underground lines), before exploring some of the local area for a short off-the-beaten track tour of local London. Please note, if you would prefer to head straight to the restaurant we can do this either by public transport, taxi or plan in advance as part of a pick up service.

Explore The Local Area

We’ll take a short, appetite inducing stroll through the local neighbourhood. Many of my guests enjoy choosing a secret nature walk route along offering a green, pleasant and more direct route to the restaurant. This is great opportunity to ask all those questions you may have about London, seeing some of London’s victorian heritage as well as hearing stories about famous faces associated with the local area from Bob Dylan and Stephen King to Ray Davies and Simon Pegg.

Authentic Full English Breakfast

Chosen from years of tasty research and based upon local knowledge, this is The London Storyteller’s top tip for the best British breakfast in town. The menu offers classic meat and vegetarian variants of the classic British start to the day but there’s also a great choice from the menu of other options which is eclectic. The restaurant itself is something of a local landmark and also has some great family friendly touches too and for those who have enjoyed a rather exuberant side of London life the night before, excellent Bloody Marys. Your booking includes your breakfast based upon a main breakfast option from the menu (or items of equivalent value) and hot drinks. Breakfast will be hosted by The London Storyteller full off anecdotes and stories about London life and legends. This is a privately hosted experience on a personable basis.

Victorian Pleasure Palace & Terrific Views

After breakfast you can choose to join The London Storyteller on a relaxing stroll to one of the highest points in London where a one-of-a-kind Victorian Pleasure Palace is situated offering superb views of the city. Its heritage stretches back over a 150 years and has been a significant location for some iconic moments in British cultural history during the 20th century. You can choose either to take a conveniently located local bus back to the station or to continue exploring independently by cab one of the nearby charming London villages such as Highgate or Hampstead. We will help you to find your way to your next adventure here in the finest city on earth.

Experience Notes

This tour begins outside Finsbury Park Station at Station Place.  Finsbury Park is a short ride from central London (circa 20 minutes from Green Park) on either the Victoria or Piccadilly tube lines.  It is also well connected by bus and by rail.  Upon request we can also make arrangement to bring you to the meeting point by private hire vehicle if you would prefer.

The standard tour will end at Finsbury Park Station though many of our guests have enjoyed the option of extending the tour prior arrangement.

“We had a great time with Tom! He was so friendly, knowledgeable about the city and history, and a great storyteller. We felt like were walking around London with a friend. We were also grateful for the non-rushed paced and the fact that he offered to at every stop of interest to take our photo. Since it’s just the two of us traveling, it’s a real treat to have more than just selfies! ”
“Great guide. Tom is a really caring and knowledgeable down to earth person, I highly recommend this tour. He gave us background, insight and perspective to everything and did it so comfortably; made us really connect to London.”
