What you’ll do

Over the years, people from across the world have come to lay their roots down in this magnificent, sprawling metropolis and in doing so, have left fragments of their cultural heritage imprinted all over the city.

If you head south of the river, you will experience a whole other atmosphere that celebrates London's historic side.

And if you head south of the river with one of our London hosts by your side, you can tap into that energy and see this side of the city from a local perspective.

Just across Westminster Bridge, you could stop off at a museum that honors one of Victorian Britain’s most influential women of medicine or you could spend the day wandering in and out of the most contemporary and forward-thinking art galleries.

Not your vibe?

Hop back a few hundred years (not literally, although that would be kinda cool) to when romance bloomed with a visit to a Shakespearean theatre, then take to the streets and explore the area and its rich with thespian history and culture.

You could also take a scenic walk along the banks of the Thames, working up an appetite that you can then quell with innovative foods from one of London's most eclectic food markets.

As you can see, there is just so much to do and see south of the river your host can't wait to show this side of the city to you.

Gianni è stato preziosissimo.

Gli abbiamo chiesto di portarci a visitare la vita di tutti i giorni ed è stato fantastico. In 4 ore ci ha raccontato la vita di Londra, la storia, ci ha suggerito cosa fare e visitare, dove mangiare, come muoversi. Da fare il primo giorno!

Adrain was very knowledgeable

Adrian is a real character and the way I imagined an english man to be like. He had loads of interesting stories. He took us around and we got to see a lot of what we had on our list and more in just half a day. We really enjoyed our time with Adrian.

Really just great!

We really wanted to see as much as possible in the 2 days that we had to see London, so I am so glad we came across this tour and that we were shown around by Elle! She was wonderful and so patient with us asking so many questions and going at our pace. We saw some of our favorite parts of London and I honestly think we would have missed so much if we had tried to go on our own. Elle is amazing and I really wish we had also booked her on our first day!
