Welcome to Footnotes

 'Just up my street', Sue Arnold The Guardian. '... the walks are especially strong on parts of London ... Mayfair North offers wonderful respite from Oxford Street.' Christine Hardyment, The Times. 

Footnotes Audio Walks allow you to explore places at your own pace. Walks take between one and two hours, and you can do them when you wish. Some of the walks cover well known areas, others take you to locations ignored in conventional guide books. They are all available free as MP3 downloads, and some as CDs while stocks last.

The guides draw on history, architecture, science, literature, even gossip and reflect the interests of the compilers.

Footnotes footnote

London is constantly changing and parts of the walks may be out of date. We hope this does not cause too much confusion. Think of it as an added historic layer, or a surrealist twist to the originals – it should not detract from the pleasure of doing the walks. 

Feel free to add a comment on any of the individual walk pages if you think it would help others.
