Description

Explore London Bridge and the Southbank district, which is one of London’s most historic and storied districts, on an exciting and immersive walking tour with a private guide. Begin at London Bridge, where the small trading town built by the Romans stood upon the river Thames. Hear the stories of how the Thames helped Britain take command of the oceans - from Sir Francis Drake and his journey on the Golden Hind to the HMS Belfast, the most significant surviving Royal Navy warship from the Second World War. Move west along the river and into the time of Shakespeare, as you pass by one of the world's most famous theatres, known for the timeless words penned by arguably the greatest playwright of all time. A few blocks east and several centuries later, step into the world of Southwark, which was built on industrial, smoky origins. Grand Victorian wharves, granaries, and shipyards once spanned its shores, amassing the trade and treasures of Her Majesty's Empire. Now, the area has evolved into one of London's most adored and exciting districts. The neighborhood has arguably the best vistas across the city, its finest walk, and London's most beloved food and produce market.
