They may not be the most conventional choice for tour guides but you cannot deny that London’s homeless community have a unique understanding of the capital.

As part of London’s Fringe festival, a number of homeless people will be hosting guided tours around the London Bridge and Shoreditch areas. The tickets are 5 pounds with nearly all the profits going to the guides.

Set up by The Sock Mob, an organisation that befriend and socialise with homeless people, it’s hoped the scheme will break down the social stigma of homelessness.
