Full description
Explore over 20 of London’s major landmarks, as well as the best of British foods. This will give you a good idea of the history and tastes of one of Europe’s most-loved city. Following the walking tour, you will stop for an hour to taste the best of British foods in one of London's oldest food markets: Borough Market, which is a bustling hub of smells and flavors. Foods you will try include fish and chips (with mushy peas and gravy), ale, pie and mash (gravy), and a world-famous dessert.

At the beginning you will head through Southwark to the Tate Modern Art Gallery, where you will go up to the 360 viewing gallery to see London from up high. You will then walk along the River Thames past old pubs and monuments, before stopping at the Shakespeare's Globe Theatre, which is truly a sight to behold. On the opposite side of the river is the Square Mile (Financial District). You will see the modern London rising in the form of multiple funky skyscrapers whilst standing next to one of the UK's oldest pubs (The Anchor).

You will then walk further along Southbank where you will hear amazing stories about London's past and present day. Afterwards, you will get to Borough Market and London Bridge, and as you walk along London Bridge you will be able to see the views which make London so amazing. You're bound to be hungry and thirsty at this point, when you head back to Borough Market for the best of British foods.
