London is famous for its walking tours, which explore every aspect of the city’s past, from the back-allies of Jack the Ripper, to its most haunted houses. Now there’s something new.

Every year millions from around the world descend on London. ere to view the iconic buildings of one of the world’s great capitals.

Vinny's been literally living on the streets of London for much of his 40 years and knows them only too well. He preferred placing the pavements of Mayfair.
Mayfair is of course home to the fantastically wealthy. Here houses are routinely prices in the many millions; the world's super rich descending on the city, pushing prices to laughable levels.
The disparity in riches is obvious to all; particularly those sleeping rough in the sleekest of London boroughs. And for many, it's that unique view that makes Vinny's tour all the more real.
The organizers of Unseen Tours say they're to help give a different view of the homeless. And perhaps, they also give a view of the great differences between rich and poor of one of the world's wealthiest cities.
