London and UK Tours
Private Tour Guide In London
The breadth of things to see and do in London is quite breathtaking. There are world class museums and galleries, historic and beautiful buildings, a kalaedascope of local neighbourhoods with their own individual character, parks and gardens and, not least, the River Thames. And that's not including the theatre, more varied cuisine than you could shake a wok at, the changing of the Queen's Guard and incomparable pageantry all year round. Why not hire a professional tour guide to add extra interest and pleasure to your visit? Hugh specialises in arranging day tours and short holidays that explore the cultural and historical depths that London has to offer. You can ask him to build a tour from scratch (see Bespoke Tours), or try some of the suggestions listed on the left. The walking tours can be adapted to fit in with your plans, and also to link in deftly with a museum or gallery, and refreshment!
Try a Jack The Ripper Tour as a means of exploring the extraordinary history of Whitechapel where so much of the 18th and 19th Century landscape remains, and be sure to squint inside The 10 Bells Pub where Jack "met up".Or book a City Churches walk to see some of the finest church architecture in the Kingdom. Military history walks can be combined with some of the best military museums to be found anywhere, and take in the spectacular scenery of central London around Whitehall (see Military History Tours).
Please have a look at the selection ideas on the left.
Tours from London
London is a day trip away from an exceptional variety of interesting places to visit. Old favourites include medieval castles, historic market towns, the countryside of the Cotswolds, the stunning scenery of Oxford and Bath, and - always popular - Stonehenge (not forgetting its relation at Avebury). There is much more in a similar vein: National Trust properties, old country houses, gardens, pubs and tea houses!
