Orientation Walks


Whether you are an English speaker already, or just learning, moving to a new city can be hard work especially if you have a family with you. Even if you have relocation support to find a home and a school, it’s often after that stage that you need the most support.

Perfect Cuppa English® can help with personalised walking tours of the area locally or around London so you can get orientated quickly and work out how to get things done. London can be so much fun for families with an amazing selection of activities for children and families, but it can also be hard to know where to start and where to meet friends.

Or why not join one of my organised walks, exploring and discovering local areas, which are fascinating and great fun, whether you have lived in London one month, one year, or several years!

I was born in and have lived almost all my life in London so have the knowledge to show you the more interesting parts of the area, beyond the obvious places to go. For example:

  • Shops and cafes locally: sharing local, independent businesses 
  • Ideas for entertaining children: indoors, outdoors and classes
  • Secret and hidden places, including architecture, art galleries and beautiful back streets 
  • Walking non-touristy London: going beyond sightseeing in central London

These walks can take place in St John’s Wood, Hampstead, Primrose Hill, South/ West Hampstead, Maida Vale or Queen’s Park, depending on where interests you the most.


Reviews & testimonials

I always enjoy Victoria’s organised walks because I learn so many new things each time, even though I have lived in this area of London for so many years. Looking forward to the next one!

I attended the Primrose Hill walk with Victoria recently and can highly recommend her. She was very organised and provided historical information about the area before moving on to the walk. She recommended several local cafes and shops to us, as well as useful information about places to go with the children (or that are child-friendly) and also referred to interesting details along the way (like the Georgian style or the blue plaques of the houses). If you´re interested in knowing more about English culture, she will certainly give you several tips and suggestions along the way, like she did with my group. Also, the groups are usually small, which means it’s a much more personalised service and everyone feels comfortable to ask questions.
