About Karl Marx The Walking Tour
Karl Marx lived and worked in London. His ideas inspired protests, strikes, rebellions, revolutions, terrorism, warfare, struggles for freedom, democracy and liberty, and regimes of tyrannical repression. Marx’s story combines comedy, tragedy, love, hate, hope and despair. This sets the backdrop to an intellectual expedition to unravel the mysteries of history, politics, economics and philosophy. We walk you through the life and ideas of Karl Marx. Sundays 11am Piccadilly Circus in front of Criterion Theatre.

My partner said she got the best explanation of the theory of surplus value she has ever heard. (My previous efforts obviously had not done the job!) I thought this was an excellent tour with lots of stuff I had never heard before; a very genial guide.

If you love history, philosophy, politics, economics and learning with a wonderfully enthusiastic and passionate teacher who brings his subject alive, peppered with plenty of anecdotes, quotations, clear explanations, humour and connections to our present day lives, this is the tour for you! More of a masterclass punctuated with some key places round Soho, be prepared for a lot of standing and listening during the tour. Heiko conveys his lifelong interest in the subject, amazing knowledge, and innate ability to teach with joy and ease. It was an absolutely brilliant way to spend a Sunday morning and I left with a list of books and films to devour in order to learn more. And to top it all we ended up in Soho for lunch - what’s not to like?! Thank you so much Heiko and very good luck with your bid for Mayor of London!

Very informative walk, you get the best summary of Karl Marx life and ideas! Tip- dress warmly as this trip is less walking and more about history and ideas!
