Karl Marx lived and worked in London. His ideas inspired protests, strikes, rebellions, revolutions, terrorism, warfare, struggles for freedom, democracy and liberty, and regimes of tyrannical repression. Marx’s story combines comedy, tragedy, love, hate, hope and despair. This sets the backdrop to an intellectual expedition to unravel the mysteries of history, politics, economics and philosophy. We walk you through the life and ideas of Karl Marx. Sundays 11am Piccadilly Circus in front of Criterion Theatre.

The time passed very quickly. Heiko is an expert who put the information across in a very accessible way. We didn't get as far as the British Museum, but I'm not convinced we were ever meant to get there - and I don't really mind.

A thoroughly enjoyable walk around Soho, learning amazing stories that are never recorded by bourgeois historians. The guide was very amusing and had excellent knowledge of all things Marx. A hidden gem of a tour :)

Not only will you receive a simple introduction to Marxist theory, you will also get an insight into the history of industrialized London (and Europe) and a good laugh.

Perennially fashionable since the days of Henry VIII,
the aristocratic “Clubland” of St James's is a premier
destination for high end craft and bespoke design.
Here you’ll lose count of the Royal Warrants (which
indicate that the Royal Family patronizes the
establishment) seen in shop front windows, even during
a short stroll to bordering Green Park or St James’s

We start in Piccadilly walk around Soho and end up, usually, in the British museum. Each guide takes a slightly different route.
