Tours in and around London, England and the United Kingdom

Welcome from your private Tour Guide

Welcome to Britain! Whether this is your first visit or you are a seasoned traveller, why not use a tour guide who will drive you in a private car and will introduce you to our beautiful country. Some of the more popular tours are described here.

 

Explore London’s world-famous sights: Buckingham Palace, Changing of the Guard, Westminster Abbey, Houses of Parliament and Big Ben, St. Paul’s Cathedral and the Tower of London can be seen from the outside with one inside visit in half a day. A full day will allow 2 or 3 visits inside sites as well as the overview. I will also show you hidden away places which visitors would miss without a knowledgeable private tour guide.
A short distance from London is Windsor Castle, country residence of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. Only a Blue Badge tour guide is able to show you the precincts of the castle, and you will stroll through the State Apartments as if personally invited. Be amazed by Queen Mary’s doll’s house with its contents, perfectly scaled down to one twelfth of normal size.
Or why not visit Henry VIII’s Hampton Court Palace with fascinating Tudor Kitchens and sumptuous State Apartments.

Travel further a-field from London to experience more of our beautiful countryside, visiting gardens, stately homes and castles, and fascinating historic sites. Salisbury’s graceful cathedral, the best preserved Roman Baths worldwide in the Georgian city of Bath and prehistoric Stonehenge make a perfect day out.
A day’s visit to William Shakespeare’s Stratford-upon-Avon combines well with dreaming spires in the ancient university town of Oxford and the Cotswold countryside with idyllic villages full of stone- and thatched-roofed cottages.

Ready to venture further? Spending a night or more out of London enables you to see even more. One suggestion is to go south west to Bath, Salisbury, Stonehenge and Montacute House in Somerset. The indoor riding gallery at the top of this Elizabethan manor house allowed ladies to exercise on horseback in wet weather. Even further is Celtic Cornwall and King Arthur’s Tintagel Castle.
Head north west into Wales for fantastic scenery in Snowdonia National Park, evocative 12th century castles and ruins and wonderfully landscaped gardens surrounding stately homes, some of which are still occupied today. Contrast that with Royal Doulton and Spode bone china factories and factory outlets in the Potteries in the middle of England. Return to London via Cambridge university town – or continue to the Lake District, Yorkshire Dales and Scotland.
