In between flights with monotonous airport hours to fill? Tour London highlights with me!

Stuck at the airport with monotonous hours to fill before your onward flight?


Or. . . . . Catch the Heathrow Express train directly into Paddington Station (or the Gatwick Express to Victoria) to meet me and let's head off for some London highlights sightseeing.

Provided that you have layover time between flights, why not discover London's highlights instead of being stuck in the airport.

This is a perfect use of boring airport time and rest assured, I'll take your onward flight and check-in timings into account and will make sure you are back at the airport in good time without stressing about your onward flight.

With that sorted, we can now head off into central London for some sight seeing, fun and a lovely London experience, including superb photo opportunities.


I meet you at Paddington Station as you disembark from the Heathrow Express train which brings you from the airport directly into Paddington in about 15 minutes travel time.

We head into central London using the London underground system - it's the oldest in the world but the trains are new!

We then explore Royal London - Buckingham Palace, the Mall, Houses of Parliament, 'Big Ben', Westminster Abbey, St James's Park - all on a walking tour of the area. We'll cover as much as possible in the time you have available.

Lots of sights, stories, facts and history (the interesting bits) along the way. . .

I then accompany you back to Paddington station via the London underground train system, and deliver you to the platform where the Heathrow Express train will take you back to the airport in time for your onward flight. Trains depart about every 15 minutes.

Meeting Location + Tour Duration

Meeting location: Paddington (or Victoria) Station. I can advise you of the exact location when you book.

End location: Paddington (or Victoria) Station. I'll deliver you to the platform for the Heathrow (or Gatwick) Express train to whisk you back to the airport.

Duration: 4 hours

The time of your tour starts when I meet you at Paddington (or Victoria) Station to when I return you to the station at the end of the tour. The tour price is for up to four hours, but if you require longer, I can quote for this too.


We'll use the London Underground system to get from/return to Paddington (or Victoria) station.
