About Step Outside Guides

London is one of the greatest of world cities. We have lived here all our lives, and know and love it well. We also know that it’s a big place, and can be overwhelming to visit, especially with children. It  can be a very expensive, too. That’s why we created Step Outside Guides.


Our guide books offer low-stress, free-to-see days out in London – you just pay for the book, your travel and your picnic.


Designed so children can lead the way, each book is narrated by a different animal guide who will take you on an enchanting tour, focusing on a different part of London’s culture and history. They are beautifully illustrated and full of fascinating facts and things to see. You can read about the different Step Outside Guides here.


Each Guide includes detailed maps and instructions as well as lots of helpful information about picnic spots, free toilets and accessibility. There are even Rest-Your-Legs pages! There are currently seven Step Outside Guides available, and they can be bought individually, as a boxed set (6), as part of a London Explorer Kit or for birthday treat days out in the London Adventure Box.


Why not take a look inside a Step Outside Guide or meet our animal guides?
