Hop-on, hop-off open top bus tours are the ideal way to introduce yourself to London, taking a break whenever and wherever you choose. Perhaps you'll stop at Buckingham Palace to really breathe in the atmosphere, or pause at Trafalgar Square for a visit to an Old Master at the National Gallery. Book an open top bus tour at night to see London sparkle as everything from the ancient Tower of London to the ultra-modern Shard skyscraper is lit up for you to admire.
Back on ground level, walking tours are the perfect way to reach the very heart of hidden London, with experienced guides at your disposal. Take The Beatles walking tour to take a step back to the Swinging Sixties and find out how London shaped the success of the greatest band in the world. You might choose to take a walk on the dark side with a Jack The Ripper walking tour, taking in the parts of the East End of London where this notorious serial killer stalked his victims in the 1880s. Harry Potter might be a fictional character but the London that features in J K Rowling's books is real, as you'll find out on the Harry Potter walking tour. Whatever your choice, you'll emerge from your London tour with a deeper knowledge of an astonishing place.
