About the Tour

Op deze wandeling volgen we in de voetsporen van Chaucer en Shakespeare over de London Bridge naar de zuidelijke oever van de Thames. Hier is het district Southwark, dat vroeger een duistere reputatie had, omdat het de entertainment, productie en handel voorzag die stedelingen wilden maar niet toegestaan waren binnen de grenzen van de stad. Je bezoekt oude herbergen, kerken, ziekenhuizen, markten en gevangenissen, die bijna 2.000 jaar geschiedenis van Londen beslaan. De wandeling eindigt bij het enorme voormalige bankside-elektriciteitsstation, nu omgebouwd tot een van de belangrijkste toeristische attracties van Londen - de Tate Modern Art Gallery.

Fragment van Oliver Twist van Charles Dickens - voorgelezen door Rebecca Dittman. Met dank aan Librivox.

How VoiceMap Works

Focus on your surroundings, not the screen

VoiceMap’s audio tour app uses GPS to play audio automatically, at the right time and place. Just install it, then download your tour and go to the starting point to begin your walk, drive, cycle, train trip or even boat ride.

Follow a route with turn-by-turn-directions

Tours follow a route from a fixed starting point. This is how we provide turn-by-turn directions. It also helps publishers tell a story greater than the sum of its parts. But you can use Resume to pick up a tour from the closest location whenever you like.

Listen as many times as you like

You can listen to your tours as often as you like using both the VoiceMap app and the VoiceMap website. Your access to tours doesn’t expire.

Take virtual tours anywhere

Just select Virtual mode in the VoiceMap app to listen to tours at home – or anywhere else. You’ll see the option after you download the tour. You can also listen to the whole tour at voicemap.me.

Buy for less on voicemap.me and sync

Once you’ve purchased a tour, it’s added to your VoiceMap library. If you sign into the app using the same method you used on the website, you’ll have access to your full library of tours in both places.

Use VoiceMap offline

The VoiceMap app works entirely offline if there’s no data connection, so you don’t have to pay roaming fees. Just download the tour over WiFi before you get started.
