londonhistoriansLondon Historians was founded in August 2010 primarily to act as a facilitator which:

  • enables all those interested in London’s history to find what they’re looking for quickly and in one place
  • provides a hub for the many dozens of disparate institutions and societies and thousands of individuals, all of whom have a common interest
  • supports conservation and historical research
  • encourages both amateur and professional historians to meet and make new friends with like-minded enthusiasts

Belonging to London Historians is very much a shared experience. We can only be as strong as our membership. We hope you’ll join us for what we’d like to make a perpetual adventure, exploring the history of our amazing city.
