Full description
Travel through a thousand years of history, meeting monarchs (including a Sewer King!), Prime Ministers, Guy Fawkes, Lawrence of Arabia, and possibly some secret agents... On our walking tour we'll travel through Westminster, London's Royal City. We'll visit palaces, including ones you might not have known were even there, the Houses of Parliament, Downing Street, Winston Churchill's secret underground bunker, the most beautiful Royal Park in all of London, and we'll also discover why you should never eat a fish that you've stolen from a monk's pond! The walking tour begins outside Embankment Station exit (River Thames side), ends near to Green Park Station, and will take around two hours. Total distance is about two and a half miles. Ticket sales will be limited to circa ten attendees, to ensure maximum enjoyment for everybody on the tour.
