What you'll do

If it’s been a while since you were in town or this is your first visit, joining a Londoner to help you find your feet is the perfect way to get your trip off to a good start. Discover how to navigate the London underground and buses, get oriented in the city streets, hear snippets of history and get tips for how to enjoy London like a local. Along the way you’ll see some iconic sights like Big Ben and the London Eye, weave your way through the crowds on some of the city’s most iconic streets like Oxford Street and there’s always time to squeeze in a pint in an authentic British pub! It’s definitely easier to find your feet with a friend by your side, especially when they’re spilling a local secret or two.

Where you’ll go

You’ll explore the historic heart of central London on the north bank of the River Thames. From the timeless elegance of Regents Street - a shopper’s paradise - you can duck down a side street and emerge in eclectic Soho, a small district of tight-knit lanes that are bursting with quirky bars, shops and places to eat. Keep walking south and you’ll pass through charming Covent Garden until you reach the Strand, one of London’s busiest streets which runs parallel to the river. You’ll spot famous landmarks like Trafalgar Square, and amongst all the double-decker red buses and black cabs, you’ll have found your feet in London without even realizing!
