NEW: Tailor-made London walking tours

UK - London Best Image 

We would like to thank the marvellous Gavin Webb (a veritable fountain of fun facts on every conceivable London-related subject) for taking the Ampersand team on a fascinating tour of the City of London. Gavin is our Blue Badge-accredited London tour guide and he can take Ampersand clients on tours tailored to their particular interests, from London’s literary legends to its varied multicultural neighbourhoods and striking architecture. Spotlighted districts include the City, Docklands, Westminster, East End and Spitalfields, Chelsea, Kensington and Hampstead. Gavin spent 20 years working in Asset Management in the City, but for the last 10 years he has provided the most wonderful walking tours of London. In his time off he can be found in London’s museums and libraries topping up his already vast academic knowledge of historic, cultural, architectural and arty topics. If you fancy getting out of the Big Smoke, he can also accompany you on day trips to pretty and historic spots like Bath, Oxford, Stratford-upon-Avon and Windsor.

There are still a few spaces left on our free Multicultural London walking tour on Saturday 2nd March 2013 at 10:00 am. Please email to RSVP. This half day tour combines London’s fascinating multi-cultural history with some of its finest 18th century buildings. See how these houses tell the story of the Huguenot silk weavers who once worked here, stop at a stunning church and peruse the edgy fashion stores at the popular market of Spitalfields. Today the delicious smells of curry, expertly cooked by the Bangladeshi community, waft along Brick Lane, but around the corner are remnants of old Jewish London and the alleys once frequented by the notorious Jack the Ripper.

Client Testimonials

Ampersand provided a bespoke and flexible holiday, tailored to my every whim. Their highly professional staff had only one goal which was to arrange an exceptional holiday and some unforgettable experiences in India. I have no hesitation in fully recommending them and they will be the first company I approach in the future - 10/10
- Anonymous, India
Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
I would recommend Ampersand without any hesitation!!! The best travel agent that I’ve ever had. Everything – from the individual care and attention in planning the trip, through to the efficiency of the agents on the ground in India – was handled brilliantly. An absolutely first-class service all round!
- Matthew Annable, Rajasthan, India
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, India
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
Ampersand’s preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet booking age. They were a delight to deal with!
- Mr David Wallace, North India
Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
