Private Tour Exploring London's Big Sights & Back Streets (7 hours)


A packed - but unrushed - day tour covering London's Highlights, Big Sights and Back Streets.

Organized and customized: The backbone of the tour is London's Highlights. The rest of the tour is planned around what you'd like to see. More Highlights + a bit of Rock'n Roll? No problem. More Kings & Queens? Easy. OR you can leave all of the planning to me. We decide on the day as we tour.

+ (depending on time and access): Changing of the Guard Ceremony + a fantastic street food market, ancient Churches, Roman remains, and a gallery specializing in London's art old and new.

Everywhere we go is in the open, or if inside is free of charge. London is BIG and although we can't do 'everything' in one tour, we'll select the best of London for you to enjoy.

Suitable for first time or returning visitors.

NB. Tour visits but doesn't go into paid attractions.

Itinerary

The back bone of the London Big Day Out is:

London Highlights: Buckingham Palace, Parliament/Big Ben, Westminster Abbey, St James's Palace, St Paul's Cathedral, Tower of London, Trafalgar Square, Shakespeare's Globe.

I also incorporate other London tour themes:

Changing of the Guard
Rock'n Roll
Kings & Queens
Horror
Dickens & Shakespeare
Art (Gallery & Street)
Harry Potter
Sherlock

We work into our day what you'd like to focus on, from the above themes. Please tell me in advance, or on the day, what your preferences are.

If we do go into any attractions, I select the free ones that are easy to work into our schedule.

The weather will partly decide how the day goes, as does your mobility.

A Recent Review of this tour

Graham was an awesome tour guide. Not only is he an expert on all things London, he has a sixth sense about what your kids or your husband are going to want to hear most. Our visit coincided with an unusually cold spell in London - our kids were less than enthusiastic about being outdoors. Graham made it fun and interesting for them. We all learned a few new things. I highly recommend this tour!
