You'll follow your host on a winding journey through London's royal past as you explore the age-old route from Westminster to Covent Garden and discover the rich and vibrant cultural heritage that was. Meet your guide at 10:00 AM outside Westminster Underground Station. Look at the Elizabeth Tower of the Houses of Parliament, home to the famous bells of Big Ben. Walk past Westminster Abbey, where many royals have married, and continue through two of London’s most charming parks. See two lesser-known churches near Westminster Abbey, before watching the royal swans glide through the ponds and the protected bird sanctuaries of the secluded shrubberies. Stop outside Buckingham Palace, and see if the state flag is flying - an indication that the Queen is in residence. Then, discover Westminster’s best street for some retail therapy. Enjoy a quick bite to eat or a coffee at an unknown café, located above one of the area’s largest bookshops. Get panoramic views of Big Ben and Westminster Abbey as an add-on treat to your afternoon tea. Next, stroll past the upmarket grocers used by the Queen, and the most expensive restaurant in London - which fortunately has slightly more affordable lunch options! Continue into chaotic Piccadilly Circus, often compared to New York's Times Square, before navigating the numerous squares and backstreets leading to Covent Garden. Wander around the covered market to discover unique handmade and designer treasures to take home. Hear some of the street musicians (buskers) and performers, who must apply to the local authorities to win the right to play in the prestigious venue.

We've joined a lot of walking and guided tours while visiting other countries over the years and thought we would try one in our own Capital City. We were seeking a tour with someone who was native to London with local knowledge who could show us places not on the normal tourist trail and give us an insight to London from a Londoner's perspective. Stuart delivered on this and some! He led us to some gems of places, most of which we wouldn't have known about and it was a joy to be on such a relaxed meander. Stuart is great company and the whole tour felt like we were being shown little known places by an old friend. We both thoroughly enjoyed the tour and I am sure Stewart enjoyed it too. We would recommend Stewart to anyone looking for this type of tour in the knowledge they would enjoy the experience.

Excellent walking tour of London

A very competent guide took us on foot to the most important places in the most interesting area in London and gave us a lot of information. We saw a lot and learned new things, better than you could have experienced on a bus tour. We will definitely recommend this!

Sandro a very patient friendly guide

Sandro was our guide for the morning. He was very helpful and patient especially with our little girl. We had fun and visited the city walking happily without realizing that time was passing. Thank you!

Nice and prepared Gessica

We visited the west of London with Gessica, a nice Italian girl who accompanied us for 4 hours, never getting bored.

Tour guide was wonderful. Great history and current info. Would recommend.
