Overview of the tour in London

In this tour of the City of London you will get to know the oldest part of London, also known as the old Roman city or"Londinium". In addition to this, it also has some of the city's most modern and sophisticated buildings. You will hear about how this area has been affected by plague, fire and the London Blitz during the Second World War, and why this is now one of the most modern and important parts of London.

However, our route goes one step furthe and explores the other side of the River Thames (Southbank). Passing by places like the Tate Modern, and its collection of modern art, the Globe Theatre, where Shakespeare developed his plays and other places like the Southwark Cathedral, the English galleon the Golden Hind or the Clink Prison, let yourself be surprised and get involved in the incredible history of the place. To finish the tour, we will end the route between the Tower of London, with its spooky and interesting stories and the Tower Bridge, always surprising and majestic for the visitor.

Our meeting point will be the Queen Anne Statue, opposite St. Paul's Cathedral, and ends at the famous Tower Bridge! Children do not need a reservation.

  • Southwark Cathedral
