There’s so much history crammed into this one neighbourhood, you’ll be struggling to keep up. From memorials to greats in Westminster Abbey to the heartbeat of British government in Whitehall to the scene of all action, No. 10 Downing Street…this tour is a fast-paced thriller. Most-photographed, most-recognised and most-loved, every landmark helps you tick off your entire London-essentials list. Buzz of Trafalgar Square, elegance of St. James's Park, to the glamour of Buckingham Palace, it’s a feast all the way. Broad boulevards, and the vistas long -- the perfect backdrop for the pomp and pageantry of royal occasions. Piccadilly Circus, London Eye, River Thames, Hyde Park, Albert Hall, even Harrods…you’ll forget to look at your phone. We even do 3 UNESCO World Heritage and 2 Tudor Palaces. Themes vary from British Monarchy’s Royal Palaces to Pomp and Ceremony to UK Parliament and Brexit to Winston Churchill’s Darkest Hour in World War Two. Which will it be for you today?
