On this London tour, take a historical and cultural look at some of the places that have helped to define London on the world stage. You'll visit the places where some of the UK’s most famous and infamous characters have lived, worked and played, with stops at places like the club where Marilyn Monroe used a double to escape the paparazzi. You'll also head to some traditional English pubs, where you have the option to grab a pint of true English beer or ale. Step into London’s red light district and learn about the “English Hugh Hefner,” who brought the sex industry to London. Some other epic stops on this epic tour include London’s Chinatown and St. Anne’s Church, and the French House (where you’ll discover which world leader established his headquarters here during WWII).
Find out where Karl Marx lived and wrote sections of Das Capital, just meters from the pub where George Orwell wrote 1984. Discover modern-day street art, and why there are statues of noses found all over London. You'll also explore the wild variations of Soho, from where rock legends like Jimi Hendrix played to where the musical genius Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart lived and wrote his first symphony.
Get to take a breather when you stop to enjoy Soho Square — the UK’s most cosmopolitan location and currently home to some of the biggest media houses, including Paul McCartney’s own and the former home of Casanova. Finish your London tour at the bar made famous by John Lennon and Eric Clapton, and where Keith Moon from The Who was banned for life!
