The guide we had (Brian) is extremely knowledgeable and has a very nice presentation style. My problem is how he handled the group. At the beginning, he said that we would go to a particular square (not one a tourist would be familiar with) and headed out at a fast walking pace on a crowded London street. Reaching a traffic...

Affordable, entertaining and informative. Took the The Ancient City at Night tour. Two hours flew by. Pleasant way to spend an evening, and the city was beautiful at night.

I went on a solo trip to London and wasn't sure what to do with my evenings once the tourist attractions and museums closed. I spontaneously decided to go on the nighttime Jack the Ripper walk. It was unique, interesting, and entertaining. The followiwng morning I went on the Westminster Abbey guided tour, which was also fantastic! Of course both... More

I went on one of these on my first trip to London and two on my second. They're fun, informative, and the guides are great! I did the Jack the Ripper tour first, which was excellent, and then a tour of London during the Blitz, and lastly a tour of the ancient city, which wasn't what I expected but was... More

This is my second trip to London in a year and I've done 4 of the London Walks. While these aren't in depth information tours, they provide you an excellent orientation to whatever area you are touring. I'd advise putting one of these as the first thing you do when you get to London to familiarize yourself with a different... More

My husband and I were in London between Christmas and New Years. We did the London Tower tour and the Royal London tour. Both were excellent tours with great guides. For 10 GBP and discounted prices for the London Tower, these tours can't be beat. The day that we were at the London Tower, the line to buy tickets and... More

My daughter and I went on the Wednesday afternoon Chelsea walk with the London Walks company last week. We've tried a number of this company's walks and always found them interesting, but in the hands of our guide, Stephanie, this was an exceptional experience.

Really loved all of the walks from this company. I think my favorite might have been the Westminster Abbey one might have been my favorite, really helping to understand that amazing but potentially confusing place. The Charles Dickens tour was great too. Afterwards it convinced me to go back and listen to the complete story version of A Christmas Carol.... More

Staying in City of London

Neighborhood Profile
City of London
From its ancient past as a Roman trading outpost to its 21st century status as the wealthiest square mile in the world, the financial district known simply as “The City” is one of London's most historic and fascinating neighborhoods. Here high rise office towers such as Norman Foster’s Gherkin mingle with Roman ruins and architectural marvels from virtually every era in between, including Christopher Wren's glorious St.Paul's Cathedral, and John Soane's dauntingly classicist Bank of England. This neighborhood is also home to some of the finest restaurants and plushest hotels in Europe, in addition to an assortment of watering holes, upscale shops, and Tube stations. During the week, the City is abuzz with white collar workers going about their business; the weekend sees this area turn into a quiet haven for sightseers.
