Mark led tenants' campaigns, threw himself into solidarity work in the1984-5 miners strike and stood on the front line of the Poll Tax protests that brought down the Iron Lady. Mark's experience of the life and struggles of the working class in Britain and internationally will remind you why Marx said that the workers are the agents of revolution.

Our Reviews on Trip Advisor


Karl Marx
The Walking Tour

Karl Marx was the most influential thinker of modern times. His epic life story combines comedy and tragedy, love and hate, hope and despair. This set the backdrop to an intellectual expedition that sought to unravel the mysteries of history, politics, economics and philosophy.

Marx’s work inspired protests and strikes, rebellions and revolutions, terrorism and war, struggles for freedom, democracy and liberty, as well as regimes of tyrannical repression.

Prof. Lea Ypi's Undergraduate students from the London School of Economics on the Karl Marx Walking tour November 2022 

We walk you through the story of his life in London and explain his ideas and their influence on human destiny. We take you to the places in and around Soho where Marx lived and worked, show you traces of the London he knew, and tell the extraordinary tale of this man who would change the world.

Our guides are experts in the field and have spent decades studying and unravelling the complexities of the life and ideas of Karl Marx, Friedrich Engels and their followers. On the walking tour we combine this knowledge with the didactic and entertaining style of a storyteller. We explain the intellectual influences of the time and delve into the secrets of Karl Marx's ideas. We explain the significance of the 1848 revolutions, and the dramatic and bloody events of the 1871 Paris Commune. We describe the life of struggle and hardship of an extraordinary community of European revolutionaries who made Victorian London their home. This circle of refugees developed ideas, organisations and political movements which would shape world politics in the twentieth century.
