What you'll do

From sifting through vintage stores and discovering the stories behind street art in Shoreditch to exploring Camden, a neighborhood that’s the epicenter of London’s live music scene, your host will reveal the real London to you. Discover its diversity as you feast your way through astonishing markets like Borough Market or Brixton Village, where you can taste dishes with roots from across the globe, or perhaps visit places like Inivia, which showcases the works of British artists of Black and Asian descent, offering an alternative narrative to London’s mainstream art scene. From landmarks like Buckingham Palace to locally loved sunset spots like Primrose Hill, you’ll see the London you’ve been dreaming of, and more, thanks to your host. 


Where you’ll go

With an Oyster card in your pocket and London’s gloriously diverse neighborhoods waiting to be explored, who knows where you might end up! In central London, you could stroll past the grand, centuries-old architecture of Piccadilly and the next moment be caught up in the tangle of lanes, quirky bars and fusion eateries of Soho. Your host could reveal pockets of the city which are often overlooked by tourists to you, like Brixton in south London, a neighborhood home to diverse global food markets, or Primrose Hill, a village-like north London enclave which will charm you with its pastel-colored houses. Or what about discovering the legendary music scene and eclectic markets of Camden, a neighborhood clustered around the Regents Canal?

A smart way to seen London

We had been to London before & had seen the "major" sights that are not hard to find, such as London Tower, Westminster Abbey, St. Paul's, Kensington Palace etc (& for which you usually need to stand in a queue to get in). Now we like to rent flats in the different areas of London, like Notting Hill, or Chiswick, or Battersea in order to explore "off the beaten path" a bit. A City Unscripted guide is perfect for this. They can suggest a great itinerary but will also take you wherever you'd like to go as well. They'll help you navigate the tube, the bus system etc (which is invaluable for learning how to get around London in a short time period), they can take you places & to see sights that as a tourist on your own you would never find. They know the spots where you can get great photographs (& of course can help take them so you don't even need to drag along a selfie stick). Our guide Becky was very personable & knowledgeable about the area. It's a great, efficient way to get a lot of the sights in because you don't have to waste any time navigating (or getting lost) when trying to get someplace you want to go. And it was a very reasonable price as well. Using City Unscripted was one of my smarter ideas.

The perfect day of wandering London old and new with Carolina

I told Carolina I wanted to wander the City to see things and places I had not seen before and she delivered. She found the Jewish quarter which is where we started. We used buses and the tube, though when she found out I liked the bus we shifted more to that. As we were on the bus we were going through an area that looked neat and I just said, Let's get off at the next stop. The wonder of this tour is you can do that, it is unstructured as you want it. Of course, wouldn't you know Carolina knew about Shoreditch and was able to guide me through markets and hip streets. We then had lunch at a great, not full of tourist, pub and then started to saunter South Bank, which I had never done. Ultimately we ended up spending time in Notting Hill and wandering in and out of shops and having a coffee before the time together ended. It was exactly what I wanted, even when I didn't know I wanted it. Carolina Rocks!!!!

A lovely day at Windsor Castle

We scheduled a tour of Windsor Castle with Ana Maria. She was a fabulous guide. She picked us up at our hotel and guided us to Windsor Castle using the Underground and the train. Ana Maria was very sensitive to our needs, and gave us wonderful information about London, Windsor, and the Royal Family throughout the tour. We enjoyed every minute of our time with Ana Maria and highly recommend her as your guide in London. She made our trip to Windsor Castle a real pleasure, in every way. Thank you Ana Maria!
