Our team have just launched the first ever official Horrible Histories Walking tour!

I’ve been working with a fantastic team of writers and actors to help create a hilarious experience that families are going to love. It's been wonderful to work directly with Horrible Histories and Scholastic to put this tour together, we're very proud of it. 

On the tour, families get the chance to join Horrible Histories on an interactive walking tour adventure through Loathsome London. Meg and Francis need your help to navigate city streets, sort facts from fiction and reach Shakespeare's Globe... before one of them gets the chop! You'll learn about fearsome fires, daring prison escapes, disgusting toilet habits, Blitzed Brits and some of Shakespeare's silly bits. This tour is interactive, funny and guaranteed to bring the history of London to life.

You can book places for the tour here on Airbnb. This is the ONLY official Horrible Histories walking tour - developed right here at Child.org.  Do go along, I'd love to hear what you think! I'm also offering some fantastic introductory rates for school groups, if you think your school would be interested please email me: amy@child.org

We've been working with Airbnb for a few years now to deliver a wide range of social impact experiences - all of which fund our work to keep children safe, healthy and in school. You can check out some of our other tours here, currently in London, Edinburgh and Oxford!
