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

We used to charge for the walks and attempted to keep them up to date. For the last few years you have been able to download them for free but you may have found many of them confusing as London changes and we don't keep up.

We have reluctantly decided to close the site down. In May 2018 the Footnotes Audio Walks website will be no more. Thanks for downloading the walks. We hope you have enjoyed them.
