See London Museums that you really really want and add something special


You will see London highlights as a first time visitor consider combining two separate vists to The British Museum and the the Victoria and Albert Museums. These are two huge "world class" museums. The extent and size of what they offer are exceptional. The trip will include adding some local London authenticity and "flavour". A pleasant walking tour tacked onto initial highlights with added special "local character" of London. This will be in and around Chelsea and Kensington and use the London Underground and buses with your guide to get to places where many overseas visitors never quite venture. See some spectacular architecture and where the 1960's fashion revolution started in Kings Road.

A Recent Review of this tour

Barry was fantastic! Hit all the obvious spots in London the first part of the day so that our new people to London in the group could get a feel for the big stuff. Then we got into the alleyways, parks, and nooks that really took us deeper into London. The stories and the adventure were top notch. We will use Barry again, and I can't recommend him more highly.
