Later this month, there will be tours of the historic sites in and around Waterloo Station, hosted by Network Rail.

The tours will be run in the public access areas of Waterloo Station and the surrounding areas, taking in the hidden pieces of history, including the original Waterloo News cinema, the Battle of Waterloo Medallion, and the World War One and Two Memorial.

Hosted by Network Rail, the tours are led by Blue Badge Tour guide, Rachel Kolsky, and will offer a chance to see how today’s society has embraced Waterloo’s uniqueness through iconic film locations, luxury restaurants, retail units and contemporary graffiti art murals.

The tours last about 2 hours each, and will run at 11am and 2:30pm on the following dates:

  • Saturday 30th April
  • Saturday 14th May

Update 7th May – more dates added:

  • Fri 15th July
  • Sun 31st July
  • Tues 2nd August
  • Sat 20th August
  • Sun 18th September
  • Thur 29th September

The tours cost £20 per person and need to be booked in advance from here.

Meet under the clock at Waterloo Station 15 minutes early for a prompt start, and wear appropriate shoes and clothing for 2 hours of standing and walking. May not be suitable for children under 12.

This website has been running now for over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, it doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether it's a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what you read on here, then please support the website here.

Thank you

    Who does one contact to ask of the possibility of extending these tours? Obviously with the swift sell out of current dates there is more than enough interest to add further dates during the summer
