My tour guide, Len Davies, was exceedingly knowledgeable and passionate about the history of London. I would hire him again if and when I return to London.

Winter touring of the Cotswolds/Bath and Stonehenge proved to be challenging. It was as expected, chilly and rainy. However, the tour guide/driver Mike Stewart made this less a factor with his excellent knowledge of the area and his love of English history. The historical facts and stories were fascinating and the primary reason why I choose a private tour. Seeing... More

We were so pleased to find out that Geoff had a passion for the War Museums and Cathedrals as did we. He made our day so enjoyable and informative. He absolutely exceeded our expectations with his knowledge, friendliness and flexible to make it our day. Highly recommend British Tours and Geoff Harper.

Keeping a teenage girl happy can be tough, but Geoff did it. We first did a London by Night tour - by car - and we saw everything! From the Carnaby Street lights to Downing Street to Harrods we got a great initial intro to London. We also did a five hour car/walking tour that was perfect - 30 minutes... More

Staying in Soho

Neighborhood Profile
Soho
The go-to district for a good time in London, Soho hosts a wealth of world-class theatres and a compelling lineup of cafes, restaurants, pubs, bars, and clubs. At Soho's core is London's original Red Light District and the epicenter of the LGBT scene – and thus the city's hottest nightlife. For shopping enthusiasts, Soho is not only the home of London's greatest concentration of boutique shops, but also the most strategic place to set off on a tour of the world's most celebrated department stores. In the southern part of the neighborhood lies Chinatown, with its multitude of delicious and affordable restaurants. Closer to the Thames, Chinatown's narrow and teeming lantern-lit lanes spill onto the expansive hub of glitzy Leicester Square.
