American London

Be amazed at just how much American influence there is in London and discover hidden gems that time has forgot. The tour focuses on two broad areas:

East and The City

The River Thames surrounding area in the east of the city. This features the beginnings of the 13 colonies from 1606: On the south side, we will visit the iconic Mayflower and travel around London's Blackwall, Rotherhithe and the pretty Shad Thames development. On the north side of the river, we will explore trendy Wapping and the City.

West End

St. James and Mayfair in the west highlight the beginnings of the nation of the United States from the 1770s. We will visit the former home of one of the Founding Fathers, Benjamin Franklin. I will show you where the ratification of the Treaty of Paris was signed, and so much more.

A Recent Review of this tour

The rating scale is insufficient -- Peter Mulcahy merits 10 stars. I've been traveling all my life and toured and been toured all over the world. The adventure in London's East End that Peter staged for my wife and teenage kids was as fine an investment as I ever have made. Peter's authenticity is grounded in his love of learning and history and his passion for London's culture and people. Feed your brain. Fill your eyes and ears with a true stories told by a master of the craft. Have fun!
