Start Your London Sightseeing Tour

Our city of London walking tour begins at Westminster Abbey, the church that has been used for many royal weddings, coronations, and burials.

Moving around outside the church gives you some idea of the scale of this magnificent building. Thousands of people are buried here, stretching from medieval monarchs to modern scientists.

Your Blue Badge Guide will happily help you guess some of their names.

Let’s Head to Parliament Square

From Westminster Abbey, we’ll cross the road to Parliament Square, complete with statues of many famous statesmen. Not to be outdone, the Houses of Parliament and Big Ben creep into view as we make our way around the Square. 

But which bit is Big Ben? And who was it named after? 

Join us to find out! Of course, as this is a London private tour, you will have the complete attention of your guide who can answer any of your questions.

Next Up: Buckingham Palace!

We’ll carry on with our central London walking tour, strolling away from Parliament Square through hidden alleyways. We can admire the local architecture on our way to the main site: Buckingham Palace. Can you recognise if His Majesty is home?

A stop at Buckingham Palace could also mean witnessing the Changing of the Guards. During certain days and in fair weather, we can join the regiments marching from their barracks to the Palace.

If they cancel the guard change, don’t panic! 

This is London: there is always time for traditional pageantry. The Horse Guards are just around the corner, and they are inspected every day, rain or shine.

Your City of London Walking Tour Continues…

Walking down The Mall offers a very regal feel and also offers plenty of places to take spectacular pictures.

Maybe one palace isn’t enough? St James’s Palace awaits close by, offering more stories about the Royal Family. 

Perhaps you’d like to see where His Majesty buys his shoes from? Browsing through St. James’s Street, we can hunt out all the shops with the Royal Warrant.  

If you’ve had enough of the Royals let’s stop by St James’s Park, a beautiful area of serenity in the middle of the city. This is also a great opportunity to spot some local wildlife, with a huge variety of birds and squirrels calling this park home.

Wrapping Up the Sightseeing Tour of London

Finally, to conclude our London city tour, we head out towards the heart of West End: Piccadilly. Surrounded now by theatres, shops, and restaurants, perhaps you can find some inspiration for how to spend the evening? 

The tour finishes at Trafalgar Square, right in the city centre of London, leaving you with time to contemplate your tour around some of the world’s most iconic sights.

Sometimes the tour runs in a different order to maximise your chances of seeing the guard change, but we will still cover all the places mentioned above.

Want to dive even deeper? Join us on a Westminster Abbey Tour to explore all the fascinating history inside the Abbey and then explore the surrounding area. Alternatively, consider seeing even more royal pageantry on our Tower of London Tour.

Perfect day We had a day tour of Westminster Abbey and London Tower with Marina today. It was outstanding! Can't say enough good words about it. Not every tour guide can keep 8 y.olds interested for two hours. She did it for the whole day! Marina is very knowledgeable and passionate about her work. She adjusted the tour to our liking and was very attentive to everybody's needs. Hope one day we will have more tours with her! Thank you Marina and "Let me show you London" company!

So worth it! Excellent, in depth tour. Our guide, Denisa, was knowledgeable and entertaining. We had 2 adults and 3 teens, and she kept all of us engaged in the experience. She customized the tour for our interests/ages. We visited the Tower of London, saw the Tower ravens (Poppy came out to meet us), stopped at Traitors’ Gate, explored the Bloody Tower… We even saw “the word,” the ceremony in which a Beefeater gives Tower Soldiers the new password for the day. Last, we saw the crown jewels. The collection and it’s history are really something! We thoroughly enjoyed our time!

Amazing Visit to London I took a group of first time London visitors to the city in June. Because we had limited time there (just 1.5 days), I decided to enlist the help of Denisa at Let Me Show You London and we ended up arranging two private tours - one private tour of the British Museum on our arrival afternoon and a full day tour of Westminster, St Paul’s Cathedral, and the Tower of London. Marianna was our guide for both tours and she was amazing. Knowledgeable and enthusiastic, she made both tours great. We even experienced a fire alarm at the British Museum and she was proactive in talking to the guards to see if and when we had to evacuate and once we did evacuate, she again didn’t hesitate to ask how long it would take to re-enter. Even I, who has been to London numerous times and who has visiting all of the places before, thoroughly enjoyed the tour. Since it was warm and we walked a lot, she was very conscientious about our energy level and made quite a few adjustments at the Tower of London to minimize steps, but again the tour was still fascinating. I would definitely work with both Denisa and Marianna again in the future.

The highlight of our UK trip This was an unforgettable experience for the whole family, including our 8 year old daughter. Our tour guide Lucy was excellent, and it really helped to have an expert explain each of the areas we explored. There is so much we would have missed without her. She really brought the place to life with her storytelling and expertise. Did I mention how well the kids liked her too! If you are going to splurge on one thing in London, this is it.
