If you are only in London for a day, then this is the tour for you! Discover the City of London’s main sights on a 5-hour walking tour with a professional guide.
Meet your guide and the rest of the group outside the renowned Ritz Hotel, in Piccadilly, one of the capital’s most important avenues, which extends from Hyde Park Corner to Piccadilly Circus.
Head to the magnificent Buckingham Palace by crossing Green Park, a scenic urban green-space and one of the Royal Parks of London. Once you get to the Royal Palace, you’ll learn how it became the official residency of the UK monarchy in 1837.
This tour also includes witnessing the Changing of the Guard, one of the most popular British ceremonies that takes place just outside Buckingham Palace (only available on Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday).
Next, follow your guide to Big Ben (which is sadly covered up because it's being renovated), on the north end of the Palace of Westminster. Along the way, you’ll see Downing Street, famous for accommodating the Prime Minister’s home, and Westminster Abbey, where numerous monarchs have been coronated.
To get to the next destination, you’ll take the Jubilee Underground line to the London Bridge area. Here, you’ll admire some of the capital’s most iconic landmarks, including Southwark Cathedral, Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre, Borough Market, London Bridge (considered the most well-known bridge in the world), the Shard (tallest skyscraper in Europe), HMS Belfast, City Hall, Tower Bridge, and the Tower of London.
We recommend you bring some food and drinks to have during the tour. About half way through, we will stop to rest for a bit.
