A half-day tour might include a visit to one of these famous London sights followed by lunch in a traditional pub. Or maybe you’d like to make a day of it by visiting two sights, travelling between them on a double-decker bus, the Underground, a London black cab. Contact me and I’ll arrange an itinerary to fit your needs, at your pace.
The British Museum contains almost 8 million objects that span 2 million years of civilisation. It is home to the Rosetta Stone, the Parthenon Marbles, Egyptian mummies, the Lewis chessmen and many artefacts from Roman Britain.
Tower of London
The Tower of London has been inextricably linked to British history for almost 1,000 years. It has been a fortress, a state prison, a site of torture and executions. It is home to the Crown Jewels, the Yeoman Warders, more commonly known as the Beefeaters.
St Paul’s Cathedral
St Paul’s Cathedral is Christopher Wren’s masterpiece. It is one of the most recognisable buildings on London’s skyline and has witnessed some of London’s most momentous occasions. The Duke of Wellington and Admiral Lord Nelson are both buried in the crypt. Prince Charles and Lady Diana were married here.
Westminster Abbey is one of the nation’s most important religious buildings and a magnificent example of gothic architecture. Since 1066, it has witnessed the coronation of almost all English and British monarchs. 17 royal weddings have taken place here, most recently the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton.
