London Tours

The first stop for many visitors to the capital is Buckingham Palace, the King’s official London home. Millions come to enjoy the changing of the guard each day, but in August and September the gates are opened and visitors can step inside and explore the Palace itself.

Westminster Abbey, just a stone's throw away from the Palace, has been at the heart of the nation's religious observance for over 700 years. Westminster Abbey is the resting place for many of the UK's greatest people, from Elizabeth I to Winston Churchill.

The Abbey stands adjacent to the Houses of Parliament, one of London's most recognisable landmarks on the banks of the Thames, which has been the seat of British government since the 13th Century. The adjoining Elizabeth Tower, which is often referred to by the name of its main bell, Big Ben, is an icon of London.

Greenwich in London is known as the 'Home of Time' as it is the location of the Prime Meridian, which divides the earth into the eastern and western hemispheres and determines the global Time Zone system. Visitors to Greenwich in London can stand on the Prime Meridian Line and discover the remarkable story of Greenwich Mean Time (GMT). Situated on the banks of the River Thames, Greenwich is one of the most beautiful parts of London and has many other attractions for visitors to enjoy.

A visit to a traditional pub is one of the top things that many visitors to London look forward to. The pub is a world-famous British institution and there are hundreds of pubs all over the capital to suit all tastes - from cosy taverns with a long and distinguished history, to more modern Michelin starred gastro pubs serving delicious food. The Mayflower, for example, is the oldest pub on the River Thames, while The Spaniards Inn in Hampstead featured in The Pickwick Papers by Charles Dickens.

A visit to London would not be complete without taking in a show - the 'West End' is famous internationally for its concentration of theatres, where you can see many of today's top plays and musicals. Or perhaps you would like to enjoy one of our increasingly popular Opera Tours?

River Thames Cruises

A boat ride along the River Thames is another must - and a journey through time - as ancient monuments jostle with modern skyscrapers, such as the distinctive 95 storey Shard, which was opened in 2012 and offers some of the best views of the capital. 


As you cruise along the Thames you will see many of London's other greatest landmarks, from the London Eye to Shakespeare's Globe, and from St Paul's Cathedral to Tower Bridge.
