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 Her 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 Her Majesty buys her hats 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.

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.

Highly recommend. Great for both adults and children Fantastic tour with Denisa. We had 3 adults and our 7 year old grandson, and she did a great job of engaging and educating all of us. She customized the tour for our interests/ages, and we visited the Tower of London, Tower Bridge and HMS Belfast.We couldn't have been more happy with our experience

DO IT Wow wow wow. This was a great tour. Everything was perfect. I don't often take tours - usually want to explore on my own. This was a short trip and we wanted to pack as much in as possible so we decided to book a tour. I've now become a fan of tours. Marina waited for us at the meeting point ahead of schedule. She was pleasant and extremely knowledgeable, even in answering our questions that were not directly related to the tour. She was prepared and kept us all engaged - adults and teens. It was clear she was prepared to engage any age. I was worried that I'd feel "trapped" in a long tour but it was the exact opposite - the day went by so easily and comfortably and I can't believe how much we saw and learned. I could not recommend the tour any more strongly.

Terrific Tower of London tour My family loved this private tour! We learned so much from our guide and loved being her sole focus. My girls could ask lots of questions and feel comfortable doing so!

Best Way to Tour the Tower Where to begin? These ladies run a top-notch operation. Their service levels are unparalled. Their knowledge base is incredible, which is only matched by their excellent communication before the tour, and follow up after with little tidbits of information. Book with them, and you will not be disappointed.
