    We want to see every country on this planet... Nearly there! We are from London and I walk past the top sights of London every day and still enjoy seeing them, so I thought: we should show other people these sights!! We have lived in the center of London for over 20 years (right next to the Tower of London). We are both passionate about—and fascinated by—the history and architecture of the city. Our friends and family use us as a human search engine for all things London-related. We are proud to live here, and we really enjoy showing off the city to visitors. Being able to tell people London's facts and figures is great fun.

  • What you will see and do

    Enjoy a historic walking tour of South London along the Southbank. 

    You'll be guided on an exploration of one of London’s oldest area. You will see 15 of London's best-known sights on this walking tour. Including London Bridge, Tower of London, Tower Bridge, The Clink Prison, The Shard and The Globe Theatre. Also, be rewarded with a brilliant panoramic view of St Paul's Cathedral to the Square Mile towards the end of the tour.

    We will guide you on an exploration of London’s major landmarks near the Tower of London and London Bridge Area. This will give you a good idea of the history, culture, and legends of one of Europe’s best-loved cities. We will head over London Bridge, getting views of the Tower of London, The Shard (Europe's tallest building), HMS Belfast (WW2 battleship), the famous square mile (financial district), before going into Borough Market. The market is a well-known film location (Wizards & a certain Leaky Cauldron), we walk through and head to Southwark Cathedral & the Golden Hinde (Sir Francis Drakes ship)  On the way to Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre, we will see  some of London's oldest streets and also the UK's oldest Prison (The Clink) This area is steeped in history with old warehouse and cobbled streets. Plus Winchester Palace which still half stands to this day. A favorite of many tourists. There are pubs and restaurants galore here. Our final stop is the Tate Modern art gallery and a famous pub called the Ring (where modern day boxing's rulebook was conceived)
