London Tours | First Timers

Quick March for Royal London

Changing the Guard at Buckingham Palace – not to mention St James’s Palace and the mounted guard change at Horse Guards – with a visit to Westminster Abbey and Parliament Square. The full day can include a visit to the Churchill War Rooms or a boat trip to the Tower of London.

London's Big Five

Westminster Abbey, Changing of the Guard, National Gallery, St Paul’s Cathedral, Tower of London: yup, everyone wants to see them and this day covers the lot. We do a full visit to one church of your choice and see four or five paintings at the National Gallery on Trafalgar Square.

Two Thousand Years of London

Start underground, in the Londonium the Romans knew, and end up in Tate Modern, the world’s most popular contemporary art gallery (with amazing views from its 2016 extension), taking in St Paul’s Cathedral, the Millennium Bridge and Borough Market along the way.

Covent Garden & Theatreland

Theatricals, market traders, top courtesans, literary salons: there’s not much that hasn’t happened during Covent Garden’s surprisingly old and sometimes rackety past. Take an invigorating stroll through the busy, narrow streets in search of food, facts and fun.

Down the Market, Up the Palace: Portobello & Kensington

West London, home to young Prince George and Princess Charlotte (and their Uncle Harry) at elegant Kensington Palace, is also the setting for one of London’s cheeriest shopping places, Portobello Market. The full day includes a walking tour through pretty, hilly Kensington and pub visit.

Royal Escape: Hampton Court or Windsor Castle

Even today, a first sight of these magnificent palaces is overwhelming. Hampton Court, half-Tudor, half-Baroque, has a famous maze and great new playground for young children. Windsor Castle is the Queen’s home-from-home, a working and historic royal palace with its own mini-guard change.
