“When a man is tired of London he is tired of life. For there is in London all that life can afford.”
It’s difficult to disagree with Dr Johnson’s immortal assessment of the endlessly cosmopolitan English capital, and there’s something for everyone in the teeming metropolis on the Thames.
From a range of world-class museums to beautiful architecture, leafy parks, a mouthwatering food culture and fascinating historical sights, London easily takes its place at the top table of world cities. On our London tours we’ll show you the best of what the city has to offer, with skip-the-line tickets and expert guides ensuring that you won’t miss a thing.
Art lovers will relish the opportunity to delve into some of the world’s greatest galleries on a trip to London: admire Renaissance masterpieces on a tour of the National Gallery, getting up close and personal with iconic artworks from the brushes of Raphael, Leonardo, Michelangelo and many more. Then get your contemporary groove on at the Tate Modern, where the brightest lights of modernism take centre stage.
Take a whirlwind journey through world culture at the British Museum, where priceless artefacts like the Parthenon marbles and the Lewis chessmen are just the beginning, or get inside the mind of one of England’s greatest architects at the eccentric Sir John Soane Museum.
London is a city made for exploring on foot, and its historic centre offers an endless array of charms. Stop off at vibrant Covent Garden or bustling Leicester square, and take a stroll through Piccadilly Circus to experience London at its most characterful.
See the city through the eyes of a local in happening Soho, and gaze on the well-heeled Georgian homes and garden squares of Bloomsbury.
History buffs will find plenty to occupy them, too. Get to grips with the fascinating story of the English capital at the Tower of London, and be spellbound by dramatic tales of intrigue and bloody deeds as we follow in the footsteps of the medieval English kings who reigned from the imposing White Tower. Wander through leafy St. James’ park and see how the other half lives at Buckingham palace, where the Queen’s crack troops guard the current royal residence in rituals that have remained unchanged for centuries.
But there’s a lot more to London’s cultural riches than its museums. Enjoy incredible views across the Thames and the Houses of Parliament from Westminster Bridge, and listen out for the chiming bells of iconic Big Ben from its riverside perch. The Gothic splendour of Westminster Abbey, meanwhile, will leave you spellbound. Beneath its soaring vaults, generations of English royals have been crowned, married and mourned. On our Westminster Abbey tour, you’ll take part in this living history.
Last but not least, for all you food lovers out there London has one of the world’s most vibrant street-food scenes: a visit to Borough Market is an unforgettable treat for the senses, where tasty morsels of international cuisine rub shoulders with local classics in the atmospheric surroundings of one of Europe’s largest covered markets.
If fine dining is more your scene, then you’re in the right place: London boasts an array of top class eateries and Michelin-starred restaurants. The city’s panoply of charming pubs meanwhile run the gamut from historic Victorian ale houses to riverside boozers, perfect haunts for whiling away a lazy summer afternoon.
