Fabulous photo opportunities of Buckingham Palace, The Mall, Trafalgar Square, Houses of Parliament, Big Ben, Trafalgar Square and Westminster Abbey. Lots of stories and history (the interesting bits) along the way too.

Perhaps you fancy a guided tour of Westminster Abbey? (Not open for sigh seeing on Sunday). £18 per person. You can buy your ticket on the day.

What’s Included

My expert London tour planning and guiding services. My London Underground train fares.

Estimated Local Cash Needed

20 GBP - The only extra outlay you'll probably need is for lunch/refreshments and and major credit cards are widely accepted in London.

What’s Extra

Your London public transport fares - a £12 per person one-day travel card will cover the trains and buses. This can be purchased on the day from a London underground station.

Or, if visiting during the summer months, you might enjoy a tour inside the State Apartments of Buckingham Palace - £22 per person. Tours only available July to early October.

Meals/refreshments - perhaps you would like me to arrange a classic afternoon tea at any one of many London establishments offering this wonderful experience.

Entry fees to attractions. For instance, you might enjoy a guided tour of Westminster Abbey (not on Sundays) where since 1066 kings and queens have been crowned. Entry is £18 per person and we can purchase your tickets on the day.



My tours are mostly walking tours but if a vehicle and driver is required I can arrange this.
