A tour of London's famous sights and the origins of the United States of America.


A full day tour of London's famous locations, secret spots and the often overlooked history of influential Americans who shaped our capital. We will visit sites that forever altered the course of our two countries and the London milestones integral to the history of the United States of America.

We will cover all the famous sights and must see locations one expects to see in a full day London tour.
Naturally, the tour can be customised to omit areas already seen or to add locations according to your tastes. From music to architecture there is something for everyone in this great city. For those that want to see London in a day with a touch of home this is for you.

The tour can be customised to a pace that suits your requirements. I keep my tours entertaining interesting and above all at a pace that suits you. I normally use a mix of public and private transport for the complete London experience

Itinerary

We will spend the morning exploring Royal London, from the Houses of Parliament to Buckingham Palace, St. James's and Soho.

After a quick lunch we will explore the city of London from the Globe Theatre to St. Paul's and the city's secret streets unchanged for hundreds of years.

I usually finish the tour at the point where the Mayflower set off on it's iconic voyage to the new world. The day is yours and of course if there are any points of interest you would like to include I will do my upmost to fit them in.
