Hosted by Katie

Hi, I'm Katie, a born and bred Londoner and award-winning history blogger. I'm an Art History graduate and passionate about discovering the hidden history that's usually missed above your eye line.

The experience

Join me on this experience and we’ll time-travel through incredible artworks from the National Gallery - one of my favourite galleries. As well as seeing some of the best paintings in the world we'll put the gallery in context and walk London's streets exploring Trafalgar Square, a Dickensian side street, then head to the River Thames to take in the breathtaking City skyline and London Eye. 

We’ll end the experience sipping a well-deserved pint in the atmospheric and non-touristy Ship and Shovell; London's only pub in two halves!

A group of friends and I went on this experience with Katie, where it was part in the National gallery, part around the area. It was so interesting to walk around an area I knew so well seeing things I had never seen before. Katie was great and gives the perfect amount of information without being overwhelming. Looking forward to my next one with her!

I've lived in London all my life and walked past many of the alleyways and courtyards on the experience a hundred times without ever noticing them. Katie is incredibly knowledgeable to a hidden London but really it's her enthusiasm that makes the experience so good. Go on it, you won't be disappointed.

We thought we knew the area quite well but Katie revealed lots of interesting places, and obscure facts about the area of Whitehall and the National Gallery. She has clearly got deep knowledge of both art and history. It was timed well, with plenty of opportunities to study our new discoveries. She is an excellent, funny, and very approachable. Thanks Katie, you made our day!
