The aim of this tour is to give you all the essential sights in a fun, relaxed and enjoyable morning or afternoon stroll. You will be met direct at your Hotel or Accommodation personally and then the adventure begins. A fully private and bespoke tour tailored to your interests. No large group to get lost in, just you and me!

The first part of the tour starts with the iconic landmarks that are recognized throughout the world, and I will be on hand to help with the photo taking! I will discuss the history of each location with a few amusing stories and anecdotes on the way.  I will also point out a few of the hidden gems that most people miss. 

We will see -
Buckingham Palace
Trafalgar Square
Whitehall & 10 Downing Street
Westminster Abbey
Big Ben, Houses of Parliament 
Covent Garden & Soho

Part two of the tour heads deep into the most historic quarter of London known as The Square Mile. Taking the side streets and alleys you will discover houses that survived the Great Fire of London, a Church that has a Roman mosaic and pavement in the Crypt,  and what could be more British than tea!, you will have the chance to pop in to London's oldest Tea Shop.

After seeing all these great sites you will no doubt need a little refreshment, and we will end our tour in a pub oozing history and character.
Don't be surprised if we have to share the bar with some Ghosts! For those who would prefer not to finish in a Pub we will end the tour in a location of interest to you. 

This tour is perfect for people with limited time in London or those who want to get a nice overview of this great city and see a bit of everything.

The tour is at your pace and I never want my guests to feel they are marched from one place to the next on a tight schedule. This tour can be completed entirely on foot. (Depending on your Hotel Location) But having an Oyster Card for the tube or day travel card is recommended as we can cover more sites, and give your legs a rest between points of interest. 

For those with mobility problems I am more than happy to assist with Wheelchairs, or adapt the tour to suit your personal needs.
