London's Pride

Discover 3000 years of London's queer history in our 7km jogging tour.

For Groups & Private Bookings

Explore 3000 years of queer lives over a 7km jog, stopping at key places along the way to hear stories of secret love, public punishment, gender non-conformity and civil rights progress.
 

This is a ‘no-glory-holes-barred’ look at the tops and bottoms of London’s queer history, and all runners are welcome.

£2 of every ticket will be donated to the Albert Kennedy Trust, supporting homeless LGBT young people.

we’ll journey from 1200 BC up until 2017 AD, learning about the surprising customs of Celtic warriors, the illicit love of a 14th century King, and London’s legendary cross-dressing brothel owner. Find out where ‘Rump-riders’ would meet in the 19th century, and lesser known stories of lesbian love across the ages. You’ll run through the streets and alleys of the city where same-sex desire was fulfilled in secret and punished in public, learning why homosexuality was a criminal offence, and how civil rights has progressed to where we are today. This is a ‘no-glory-holes-barred’ look at the tops and bottoms of London’s queer history, and everyone is welcome!

"Myself and my mum did the LGBT History tour over the bank holiday and it was fantastic! I am new to running so the 7k was a challenge but everyone was so lovely and supportive. An absolutely brilliant experience and a way to actually make running super fun and incredibly interesting!!" 
Lydia Doherty, Facebook review

"Great way to see central London - especially for a relative newbie to the city! Vanessa was lovely, a good laugh and the whole group were all really friendly. Great way to spend an evening."

Dani Elle, Facebook review

"As somebody with limited knowledge of history, I found it a useful tool for improving my general British history, as well as that specifically related to LGBT culture."
Simon, Facebook review
