Other London Tours
Here is an example of a popular full day itinerary, a tour around Historic London... and Beyond:
On this tour we will see the world famous Changing of the Guard, follow in the footsteps of royalty on a walking tour of the area with views of Buckingham Palace, Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament and we will also visit Westminster Abbey, the Coronation church and burial place of Kings and Queens. A perfect introduction to London.
The City of London
On this tour we will visit the Tower of London with the Crown Jewels, Ravens and Beefeaters and then head over to Sir Christopher Wrens 17th century masterpiece St Paul's Cathedral, and if you fancy it we can walk all the way to the top of the dome for spectacular views of London!
This walk will take us from the iconic Tower Bridge, along the historic South Bank of the River Thames - with views of the historic Cities of London and Westminster we will learn about the development of London, Shakespeare, perhaps a bit of Modern Art in Tate Modern and perhaps finish off with a spin on the London Eye for fabulous views of London.
Tower of London
A tour of the Tower of London can easily fill 3 hours - with a visit to teh Crown Jewels, trying to catch sight of the Ravens and the Beefeater Guards, finding Henry VIIIs armour or Keeper the Dragon, or imagining what it would have felt like to have been a prisoner here... this place is good fun for all the family!
Westminster Abbey is a royal church - where (almost) all Kings and Queens have been crowned since 1066, it has remarkable medieval architecture, and it is a burial place not only of Kings and Queens, but also of many significant people from British history. If you want an introduction to the people who made Britain great then this is a good place to start!
St Paul's Cathedral
St Paul's Cathedral is the people's church, and it is closely linked to two great disasters - the Great Fire of London of 1666, which destroyed the old church and allowed Sir Christopher Wren to construct this church, and it survived the Blitz of 1940-41, so it is a symbol of hope and the survival of London. The architecture is also spectacular, and if you have the energy a trip to the top of the Dome is well worth it!
City of London Walking Tour
The City of London is the oldest part of the London, founded by the Romans 2,000 years ago. It is a warren of little alley ways, hidden sculptures and old traditions - take a guided tour to discover its rich history.
Hidden London Walking Tour
If you've been to London before, or perhaps fancy something a little off the beaten track then this hidden London tour will take you to secret places even Londoners don't know exist!
This lovely little palace is still lived in by royalty - although we will be exploring the historic rooms used by King William and Queen Mary in the 1600s, and by the young Princess Victoria, before she became Queen in 1837. We will also see the lovely gardens, and you may like to finish with afternoon tea in the Orangery?
Hampton Court Palace
This fabulous palace a little outside of London is well worth a visit with architecture from many different time periods, amazing Tudor kitchens, fabulous gardens and incredible art. A must see!
Churchill War Rooms
If you want World War II to come to life, if you want to imagine what Churchill was thinking and feeling as he led Britain against Hitler, then a visit to the Churchill War Rooms is a must! You will see the Government's bunker as it was during World War II, and it is so evocative that you can't help but imagine what it was like to live and work in London as the bombs fell.
With visits to the Cutty Sark, the Painted Hall, the 18th century Chapel and perhaps the Royal Observatory London as the most powerful port in the world will come to life!
The Squares of London
A walking tour exploring the entertainment centre of Westminster, taking in PIccadilly Circus, Leicester Square, Trafalgar Sqaure and Covent Garden, perhaps taking in along the way some historic shops like Fortnum and Mason, and perhaps a wander through Soho and Chinatown.
