What to Expect
After meeting your guide in Covent Garden, visit the local Christmas market and walk along the historic cobblestone streets to admire the beautiful architecture. As you pass through Leicester and Trafalgar squares. your guide tells you stories of London’s ancient past and Christmas traditions. Trace the footsteps of Charles Dickens by visiting his favorite pub, where you’ll try a Christmas beverage and classic British fruit-mince pie. Then cross the River Thames to see top attractions, including Big Ben and the London Eye, illuminated at night. End the tour at the riverside Christmas market, where you can stay to browse and eat. Your guide can also provide recommendations for you to continue exploring on your own.
