What you'll do

Discover some 20 of London’s most famous attractions, as well as getting in on the secret of where some hidden local spots are just around the corner. From a wine bar hidden underneath Trafalgar Square to Maltby Street Market near the world-famous Borough Market, you’ll experience a local spin on unmissable London, discovering hidden secrets as you explore. It will be like spending the day with a friend as you flit between landmarks and amble along the banks of the River Thames for a unique view of icons like Tower Bridge and Westminster. And when it comes to the best view of the city, which of course is a must-see, our hosts know just the secret spot. No, it’s not the observation deck of the Shard, it’s the observation deck at the Tate Modern.

Where you'll go

Stroll west from Trafalgar Square for the ultimate view of Buckingham Palace, and down through Westminster. You could amble along the south bank of the Thames, hop on a ferry (local hack, you can use your Oyster Card!) and head to the 1000-year-old Borough Market, where you can feast gourmet goods which reflect the incredible diversity of London itself.
