Booked months in advance as many of the "Hidden London" tours have to be as they are hugely popular.
First thing to say is the organisation is excellent. Meet at a neighbouring hotel. The hotel staff are aware why you are there & able to...More
It's quite exciting descending into the tunnels, and then seeing the trains rumble past you. The tour is well marshalled, and the information that the guides tell you is at just about the right level. At the conclusion of the tour we were given a...More
Did the Down Street Hidden London tour run by London Transport Museum. Very hard to get tickets as this is extremely popular. This is the second time I have done it as it is so interesting, especially if you love the history of the London...More

Set beside some of London's best parks and home to world-class galleries, luxurious hotels, and famed thoroughfares, the ultra upscale Mayfair is one of London's most exclusive haunts. Here the shopping is haute, the dining is exquisite, and the nightlife is vibrant. A casual stroll through the area’s chic streets will reveal that Michelin stars and chauffeured cars are practically the norm here. Even
if you're on a tight budget, this exceptionally well connected swath of Central London is worth exploring, if only for the chance to take a peak at the goings on of upper crust English society.
