About Look Up London

Look Up London began as a blog in 2013 but since then, founder Katie Wignall has run walking tours in search of the London history hiding above your eyeline.

Specialising in London walks for those that want to discover the real London, the scheduled tours usually attract Londoners who want to get to know their home better as well as travellers who want to get under the skin of this great city.

Look Up London as a blog is about discovering things you’ve never noticed before, taking a moment to raise your eyes above your phone and see what you can spot.

The blog features details of the hidden details of London history. An unnoticed plaque, a strange sculpture or an architectural flourish which unearths the history of the area you’re in. As well as these details Katie writes about tours inside inspiring historic buildings and trips to unusual museums, bringing exposure to London’s lesser known heritage hotspots.
