Secret London Walking Tour

ToursSightseeing ToursHalloween ActivitiesTheme ToursCulture & HistoryArchitectureHistory & HeritageEco Certified

There is more to London than Buckingham Palace, Big Ben and Trafalgar Square, iconic and incredible as they may be. This is a very different sort of tour and will open your eyes to a London that most tourists never see and which most locals never notice.

Highlights

  • See some of the hidden streets of London
  • Visit secret locations that even most locals don't know about
  • Experience old London as it used to be

Description

Having met you at your hotel or at Temple Tube Station for this private walking tour.  First up you will see the ancient faces of the Lions that stand overlooking the Thames. Actually a clever little water gauge to see when London will flood and literally go down the drains. A little walk away you will see a historic survivor and extremely rare example of a gas lamp post. People often joke that people who eat too many beans or sprouts might accidentally light their rear ends on fire and here is a lamp that runs off the methane from Londons stinky sewers. You will visit a house that is identical to 10 Downing Street, home of the Prime Minister and learn of the ghost that haunts a tunnel by the luxurious Savoy Hotel before walking through some of the oldest streets in London which houses a secret tunnel where King Charles II used to meet with his lover. Other sights you will visit include the narrowest street in London, best to visit that one before eating. See the old water clock and a church that was mistakenly built back to front as well as the beautiful alley which was the inspiration for Diagon Alley in Harry Potter. After visiting the very center spot of London where all the distance measurements throughout not just Britain but the old Empire and Commonwealth nations are measured from, you will visit the old and quirky Craig’s Court where you will learn about Whitehall Palace that was destroyed by fire and of the enterprising aristocratic who bought up land next to the old palace in exectation that the Royals would soon move back in. Craig’s Court was also where something incredible was invented centuries ago and which you all use today, every day of your lives. Your tour ends having visited a mysterious statue of a nose, the site of the Texan Embassy in London and the home of the mistress of our most famous genius sailor, Lord Horatio Nelson.
