London Walks in the footsteps of your ancestors


About Us

Hi my name is Diane I am a passionate family historian and love the East End of London and because of my own family history I know the area well.



Tailored to your own Family History I will  research if the census or other documented addresses for your family still exist using various maps and resources. I will also explore what may be of interest in the area your ancestors lived and worked. 

A Favourite Lunch Stop


The Bow Bells on Bow Rd, the lunch venue for the Bow to Mile End Walk, popular with all my walkers.   

A popular place to visit


The Ragged School Museum a warehouse that was taken over by Dr Barnardo and became a school for the local children. Now a museum retaining many of the original features. A great place to visit on the Mile End to Whitechapel Walk

Airbnb Review

“I spent a really interesting morning with Diane, seeing parts of the East End I’d never have thought to visit alone. Having mentioned my ancestors were from the area, she went above and beyond to tailor our walk to places they lived and would have known, as well as pointing out points of hidden history along the way. Diane is lovely and really knowledgeable. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending her walks to anyone with an interest in history, particularly genealogy.


I am happy to offer a discount to family groups, accompanying children  8-15 go for free, 

WI groups, and especially Family History Society group members. 

Please contact me for details. 


Yes walks will go ahead in the rain unless it is a serious weather warning.

If your train to London is cancelled or seriously delayed i.e. the delay hits the headlines, I am happy for you  to re-book your day. Please let me know as soon as you can.
