You will be met direct at your Hotel in London by your own personal and private Tour Guide and your adventure into the past begins.

Many visitors to London come to see the world famous landmarks, and these are stunning!. But they rarely venture off into London's most historic quarters. Let's go to the hidden sights that escape most tourists, (and many Londoner's)

London is in fact two Cities, the City of Westminster and the City of London. The City of London is the capitals historic heart with a rich, varied and often bloody history stretching back two millennia . Our tour will start in the City of Westminster and then move on into the back streets of the Square Mile (or City of London) and ending in the now trendy Spitalfields/Whitechapel area which once played host to Jack The Ripper, and Joseph Merrick 'The Elephant Man'

You will soon be taken away from the main roads to disappear into the back alleys and hidden courts of old London. Your guide will explain the fascinating history of these lesser known routes, and the buildings that survive around them. The great fire of London destroyed 80% of the City in 1666, fortunately your guide knows the parts that escaped!  

From the atmospheric pubs and 'Chop Houses' featured in many of Charles Dickens novels, to Roman pavements you will be amazed by the history just a few metres away from the busy main roads. 

The perfect tour for people with a sense of curiosity and who want to discover the sights that others easily miss. Also Ideal if you have limited time in London and want to discover as much as possible in a relaxed and fun morning or afternoon stroll around this magnificent and historic city.

Leave the large tour groups behind and treat yourself to your own private and bespoke tour of London's fascinating past.

As always with my tours, I am your personal guide and if you have certain interests I can tailor the tour for you. Everything is at your pace, and a sense of curiosity is highly encouraged! If we spot something of particular interest to you we can stop and check it out. No formal time limits, or strict schedules, I want you to have the best experience possible! 

This tour can be completed entirely on foot. But having an Oyster Card for the tube or day travel card is handy as we can cover more sites, and give your legs a rest between points of interest. (But this is optional and I can assist)
For those with mobility problems I am more than happy to assist with Wheelchairs, or adapt the tour to suit your personal needs.
