Free Tour London Essentials in 1.5 hours!
Free Walking Tour London was created to show you the best of London in a more cost-effective way. Our guides are experts in history and London in general and are only too happy to recommend ways to spend your time in the U.K. capital. Our tours work on a pay-what-you-like basis whereby you can enjoy a tour with us, and then at the end of the tour, you can show your appreciation to our guides.
The London City of Westminster tour visits the political centre of London. Starting by Nelson's Column, the geographical centre of the city, we will then stroll along Whitehall to see 10 Downing Street, the beating heart of UK government. We will also pass the mounted guards who stand at the entrance to the Hourseguards' Parade, before heading to the majestic Houses of Parliament, and its famous clock tower aka Big Ben. The tour then proceeds through the serenely beautiful St. James's Park and finishes with a visit to Buckingham Palace to visit His Majesty the King. If you are new to the city, we suggest that you take this tour to get an overview of the history of London and then take one of our other tours to learn about the city in greater depth.
