London Liars' tours are your opportunity to hear some top tales, tell outrageous stories and perform on the streets of London as well as winning excellent prizes. These interactive walks work like a normal tour with a guide telling tales at a number of stops but at each stop members of the tour also read out a couple of tales one of which is improbably true the other a plausible lie. The audiance then splits according to which story they believe in those who spot the true one get a nice token and the pleasure of watching those who choose the wrong one perform a forfeit loosely connected with the story told.

The person with the most tokens at the end wins the prize (in the event of a tie there is a penalty shoot out style "lie off").

We see this as part of a popular initiative to reclaim street fibbing for the ordinary person.

These tours start at 100 for up to 12 people and 150 for up to 20. After that it's an extra 5.00 per person. They are available currently in Blackfriars, Bloomsbury, City, Chelsea, London Bridge, Kensington, Spitalfields, Vauxhall and South Bank / Strand. There is also ghost themed liars' tour.

London Liars' Tours

As featured in the Guardian (London's Top Ten Walks) and the Sunday Times travel magazine.

Based on an idea by Holly Gramazio and developed by Silvana Maimone.These more interactive tours are great for work groups, team building and those interested in a more involved walking experience.

If you fail to spot the lies you'll get the opportunity to sing, dance and orate on the streets of London. There are chances to eat cheese, drink gin, suck lemons and act like an assassin.

However it's more fun watching others do these and claiming the coveted prizes.
