About the event

Whether you are local or visiting London for the first time, this tour will offer you a unique insight into London's past, as well as it’s present and future.

Our Central London Tour: 

This is the first of our tours we will be offering throughout London. A 2-2.5 hour walking tour, we start at Embankment Station: the Victoria Embankment Entrance (by the Thames). Here you will be greeted by your tour guide, Author, Gemma Petherbridge. 

From there she will introduce you to some of the most sacred, often forgotten sites around London.

What to expect:

Together you will explore how London came to be, we will travel through history to understand the city’s connection to Egypt, the Romans and the Age of Enlightenment. You will learn the tales of the witches of London, see the homes of secret societies and walk the streets that birthed London’s New Age Movement.

Learn about the Gods and Goddesses who were worshipped here including Isis and Father Thames, the spirt of the Thames River itself. You will see how within a matter of steps you can journey from the mythical Temple Church to the home of famous figures like Sweeney Todd, or sights made famous on the big screen.

Throughout the tour you will learn about the sacred ley lines running under the city and how they have shaped it’s story. The lines, wells and many other energetic locations are a hint to London’s past. A place of ancient stone circles and sacred waters for forgotten locations dedicated to honouring such moments as the Solstices and Equinox.

Together there will be 15 stops, many with areas you can sit and rest while Gemma shares new information. The tour ends outside The British Museum, offering you a chance to explore the crystal skull, Goddess statues and esoteric tools housed inside (admission is free).

A recent client said: 

***"The tour was so informative, connecting history with interesting spiritual facts, I’d walked past so many places on the tour and never realised the meaning that they had. I also discovered sites I never knew existed. It's made me slow down  and actually take in my surroundings and release that you can find spiritual connections even on the busy London streets."***
