“Thank you Chris for a brilliant day attending the history walk! Many historical buildings, memorials and interesting pictures to go along with the talk! The view along the Thames today was hard to imagine the hustle and bustle of wartime Southend! I look forward to booking again.”
“Joined Chris for a history walk & talk this weekend. Chris, is a great guide, engaging and super knowledgeable about Southend history. Highly recommended and I'll look forward to joining another walking tour. 👍👍👍”
“Today we went on the War Walks: Gunners Park, walking tour. Brilliant! Chris is a very knowledgeable and interesting bloke. Highly recommended.”
“A very detailed walk around the old Shoebury Garrison. Extremely interesting and lots of knowledge.”
“I’ve just attended my second walk with Chris, again so enjoyable. I’ve learned so much about the place I love, with a lot of laughs along the way. What makes the walks so good is Chris’s enthusiasm, you can’t help but be drawn in. Highly recommended.”
“Excellent tour, it was amazing how quickly two hours went! Chris is passionate about history and really knows his stuff. We learnt some fascinating facts covering a vast time period in Southend’s history from the London shipwreck to WW2 - who would’ve thought that Southend would’ve manufactured commemerative ceramic incendiary bombs...! All in all a brilliant afternoon and we are looking forward to the next tour👍!”
“Had an absolutely wonderful walk along Southend seafront with Chris today. Chris really knows his stuff and brought history alive along with some wonderful humanity and humour.
Something so lovely about being in the fresh air and walking a nice spot with a guide who loves history and really knows his stuff. Everyone along with us enjoyed it.
Will definitely be joining more of these walks.
From this walk among other things I am off to research more about The London warship. Something I knew little about until Chris brought it to life for me.
