What you'll do

Spend half a day exploring London and experience what makes it so unique. From the Royal Parks to centuries of history along the Thames, pop-up markets like Dinerama to a thriving street art scene, your host can’t wait to share the diversity of their city. Perhaps visit historic markets like Old Spitalfields, where you’ll find vintage clothes, British designed and made jewelry and quirky artwork, or you could head further east to Hackney and taste London’s booming brew culture as you stop by a quirky craft brewery like Howling Hops. Or if it’s a quintessentially British experience you’re dreaming of, what about visiting Buckingham Palace then indulging in a quirky, modern take on a British afternoon tea at Sketch in upmarket Mayfair?

Where you’ll go

If you’d like to discover London’s iconic central areas, you could start in charming Covent Garden, then take a stroll across Waterloo Bridge until you reach vibrant Southbank, then amble along the river until you cross the river once again at Westminster, where you’ll see landmarks like Big Ben and Westminster Abbey. If you’re interested in discovering a more local side of London, you could visit neighborhoods like Brixton in south London, a multicultural area known for its global markets and projects like Pop Brixton, a collection of street food kitchens and even a community garden. Or perhaps chic Islington, a north London neighborhood known for its stylish restaurants and boutiques as well as its cafe culture is more your style?

Reviews for this experience

Thank you for the happy memories

Gessica is a lovely young woman who has acquired a general knowledge of London through her student days. She is adaptable as to tour locations, and can ensure that you see what you particularly want to explore. I enjoyed my tour of Regent, Oxford and Carnaby streets with lunch at the Old George Inn. You will also gain much needed confidence in getting around by Underground during your stay in London.

Great London Walking Tour!

Nikki was great!! This was our first time visiting London and she provided an informative and entertaining tour for us. We thoroughly enjoyed her company and would recommend her to any one wanting a tour.

Outstanding guide for major London sites!

Very knowledgeable of the city and the best London sites to visit given a limited amount of time. I received a whirlwind tour of the Parliament building, Westminster, London Tour, London Bridge, the Southbank and other key sites. Very pleasant and willing to move around the city with speed and great historical insights. Highly recommended.
