What you’ll do

British punk rockers The Clash hit the nail on the head when they said London is calling.

You just can’t resist. But if it’s been a while since you were in town or this is your first visit, joining one of our local London hosts 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 (no getting lost on our watch!), discover the briefest of histories and get tips for how to enjoy London like a local.

Along the way you’ll see some iconic sights like Big Ben and Buckingham Palace, stop for a coffee or a pint (if you feel it) and get the scoop on making the most of your time in London.

It’s always easier to find your feet with a friend by your side, and that is exactly how it will feel with our local London host who will have you feeling right at home once they’ve shared their tips for where to eat, how to get around and spilled a local secret or two.

Ask any and all of the questions you have about the city, and you’ll be ready to go it alone in no time!
