About me

Walking, cycling – and running – tours of London’s most interesting and happening borough and surrounds Hackney. Alternative Olympic, Radical Stokey and Feminist Hackney tours from travel writer and professional guide Simon Cole. As seen in Guardian, Stokey Lit Fest, France 24, ARD and more.

Think it’s all about the East End? Think again; Hackney has incredible social & radical history that literally changed the world. Hire us if you’re got 6 or more people, we’re great value and we give good tour.

Want to hear both sides of the Gentrification/Olympic debate? We’re working in tandem with academics. Want to have fun? We do that too.

If you want to really know Hackney…
