About our Secrets of London Templars Walk

A hidden world right in the heart of London, our London Templars and Bloomsbury tour is a truly immersive alternative walk that explores what was once the stronghold of the Knights Templars all the way to Bloomsbury, London’s literary capital. Ideal for lovers of history, architecture and secret routes, you will discover a completely new world tucked away from Holborn’s busy roads and commercial high street. “Who enters here leaves noise behind” Charles Dickens used to say. Beautiful gardens, miniature courtyards and graceful Gothic and Victorian buildings make this tour a unique and authentic gem that is out of the radar of most touristy routes.
