About the tour

If your stay in London is shorter than you’d like it to be, but you want to leave with the feeling that you have seen the most important sites of this magnificent old town, then our Free London in a Day Tour is definitely the tour for you.

We’ll get going at 10.00 in the morning from Tower Hill Station, and we’ll spend all morning exploring the City of Westminster, the place where political power has been held for the last 700 years, and certainly the most eccentric and picturesque area in town. Watch the soldiers of the Queen’s Guard marching in their bearskin hats in front of a band playing 19th Century military marches. See Buckingham Palace, where the Queen resides, and St. James’ Palace, built by Henry the VIII for his second wife Anne Bolene. Hear all the Royal gossip and learn about the history of the most popular Royal Family in the world. Walk to the houses of Parlament and see where the real power is held as you take your picture in front of the Big Ben.

At around 13.00 will stop for an optional traditional Pub Lunch, where you can chat further to the guide, and enjoy a fish and chips with a pint of good old ale.

After lunch will venture into the City of London, the root of it all, Londinium, the place where the Romans settled two thousand years ago. It is here where trade, economic power, and the middle classes have thrived since the times of William the Conqueror nearly a thousand years ago. Walk through the oldest streets of London as you gaze up to some of its most modern buildings. Be amazed by St. Paul’s Cathedral, and hear about the man who built it and rebuilt all of London after the Great Fire of 1666. Learn about some of the most powerful corporations in history, such as The East India Company, in the place were capitalism was born.

The Free London in a Day Tour runs every Saturday and Sunday at 10.00 from Tower Hill Station. No tours on the 25/12 and 26/12.
