Why not start by exploring the stunning Palace of Westminster, home of the UK Parliament, and Westminster Abbey, iconic venue of so many Royal Weddings over the years.  These breath-taking structures are the backdrop of so many pictures and postcards of the capital, but your Local Host will let you into some local knowledge about the buildings and their surroundings too! They’ll also help you to navigate around the tourist traps and crowds too. From here you’ll also be able to see some more iconic landmarks down the river and take a few photos for yourself. 

This area, however, isn’t just about Westminster, just down the road you’ll come across perhaps the most famous street in Britain, home to parliamentary officials past and present. Feeling thirsty? Your Local Host can introduce you to a pub renowned for its political and parliamentary regulars, and local stories too! 

If you’re seeking some tranquillity in the centre, your Local Host will be happy to escort you to one of the picturesque Royal Parks and this area of London is also home to statues and memorials of composers and previous Prime Ministers.

Visit iconic Trafalgar Square too, the perfect spot for some memorable pictures. If, however, you’re looking for a more authentic touch, your Host will happily introduce you to one of the local cafes, shops or venues which are nestled in-between these iconic spots. Perhaps you’d like to stop for a coffee in a café nestled deep in the crypt of one of London’s oldest churches, or visit a well-known art gallery, your Local Host will plan your time entirely around what you want. 

As your experience comes to an end, explore one of London’s trendiest shopping areas and get some excellent advice from your Local Host on where to eat, drink and see for the rest of your trip, from rooftop cocktail bars to the best west end shows, get some local hints and tips and make the most of your stay!

Great private experience and awesome local host

A great private tour I would recommend!!!!!!! My son and I had the most awesome time on this tour. It was at our time and pace. My local host Gail (so awesome and thank you!!!!) was very knowledgeable on each location she took us to and she made me feel like I was out with a friend who knew exactly where to take us and make the most out of the 4 hours. I must admit it was quit a bit of walking but that is also at your discretion, my son and I wanted to see as much as we can and Gail help us accomplish that. After this tour it was a little easier to maneuver from one location to the next for the other attractions.

4 hour walking tour with private guide in London

Never having been to London before, this seemed like the best way to see the highlights within our limited time frame. It was! Adrian came with a plan based on what we had told him beforehand that we wanted to see, and we did that plus other things that he suggested. His plan was flexible enough to go with whatever was happening yet structured enough that we covered it all in the allotted time while still learning many interesting things about the area. I would highly recommend a City Unscripted tour in any place you are visiting for the first time. They meet you and drop you back off at a place of your choosing and show you things you would probably not see in a short amount of time otherwise.

London- City Unscripted - April 2018

This was a great walking tour. We had guide Adrian.. he was knowledgable, friendly, funny and very reactive to our needs. This was a great tour made a little more difficult because of the visit of the commonwealth heads. London was jam packed that day and VERY HOT. We had a private tour... just my wife and I.
