What travelers say about their London tours

Travel tips for london trips.

One of our favorite parts about our London tours is that it’s always a good time to take one. Despite being farther north than much of North America, England has a temperate climate—which means tours to London are enjoyable any time of the year.

Spring and fall offer pleasant weather and fewer crowds at the most popular sites, making the off-season a perfect time to visit England. Winter offers plenty of charm, especially when Christmas markets line the streets in London and around the country.

No matter what time of year you plan to travel to London, expect some rain—but don’t let it keep you from enjoying this beautiful destination! Just have your wellies with you (that’s British for “rain boots”).

The top attractions for all London trips include:

  • Buckingham Palace. A trip to the enormous royal residence is a must for all London tours. Be sure to catch the famous Changing of the Guard!
  • London Eye. This iconic ferris wheel boasts the best views of the city. It’s even air-conditioned.
  • Big Ben. This is the famous clock attached to the Palace of Westminster. You’ll get the best view from the Westminster Bridge.

Check out our London Travel Guide for a full list of the top attractions we feature in our London tour packages.

There are infinite things to pass the time on our London tours , but some of our favorites include:

  • Shopping at Harrods, the United Kingdom’s largest department store
  • Sipping tea at Kensington Palace’s Orangery, a stunning Victorian-era setting for a midday snack
  • Strolling through Trafalgar Square and appreciating the art inside The National Gallery
  • Crossing Abbey Road, the famous location where the Beatles took their iconic photo
  • Perusing vintage books, antiques, and street food at Portobello Road Market
  • Eating fish and chips at Rules, London’s oldest restaurant

Our escorted tours of London, like The City Experience , are your sure-fire way to make the most of your time there.

Here’s what to pack for a tour in London:

  • A windproof umbrella and raincoat. London has its fair share of drizzly conditions throughout the year (it’s part of the quintessential London experience!), and being prepared for rain means being prepared for wind.
  • A comfortable backpack. That way, you’ll always have what you need, no matter what.
  • Lots of layers. The weather in London turns fast, and layers are a great way to make sure you’re always comfortable.
  • UK power adapter. This three-pronged adapter is different from the two-prong European adapter, so make sure you order the right one before departing on our London tours. This guide to power adapters and converters can help.

Apart from the famous fish and chips, you can’t go wrong with a traditional Sunday roast with Yorkshire pudding (popovers), roasted potatoes, and a vegetable on the side.

Meat pies are another popular food in London. The ingredients inside a meat pie can vary, but there are always three main options: beef, mushrooms, and good English ale.

And while it’s not necessarily a food, no trip to London is complete without trying a traditional afternoon tea. There are hundreds of teas to choose from in England, and you’ll typically enjoy them alongside light sandwiches, scones, or pastries. Yum!

If you're going to spend a fair amount of free time in London, you may benefit from purchasing The London Pass. It's around £75 for a day pass, but is very worth it if you plan to visit several of the city's attractions in a short period of time!

And remember: people in England drive on the opposite side of the road than we're used to, so please to look both ways before crossing the street on our London tours!

Our London Travel Guide will answer all your questions. It’s full of the top travel tips, including what to see, what to do, and what to know.

One of the perks of going guided is that you’ll see the top sites without planning a thing or worrying about transportation. Along the way, your expert local guide will dive deep into the history and culture of the city, as well.

Another benefit of our London group tours is meeting some incredible people along the way. You’ll see the city alongside new friends in your group, and get to know our guides as they share unique perspectives on London.

And, with all kinds of excursions and opportunities to explore during free time, our London guided tours give you plenty of time to set off on your own, too.

TOUR ITINERARY

Coming to visit the UK as part of a larger party? Regardless of whether you are a company holding an important team event, a missionary group on transit through the capital or a travel agent organising a large group visit, London Magical Tours' range of minibus and larger private bus tours can cater for all needs and budgets. Through our decades of experience, we understand the importance of planning and paying attention to the details which make your event a truly special day to remember. Groups travel in a modern mini-bus or large coach dependant on the size of your group. Multiple coaches can travel together for groups over 100 passengers. What's more, private group tours are a very affordable way of discovering the UK, with big savings off the standard tour prices: the larger the number of passengers, the greater the saving off the per person price. Simply choose from any of our full range of tours, all of which are available for larger parties.

THE EXPERIENCE

Unlike other tours, the experience is not just an orientation service where you are left "to wander". It is also not just a drive where all the time is spent inside the vehicle: Our tours are fully escorted, whether with a professional driver-guide at standard level (one person) or with your own sightseeing team at the VIP levels (professional tour guide plus, in addition, a chauffeur), so that you never miss a beat. There are no parking problems or walking long distances to see the sights. The curbside service stops right by the attractions, away from the masses. At standard level photo stops are made with commentary throughout. At our VIP levels with your own expert guide and extra chauffeur, stops are made at the key landmarks for you to go outside on walking tours led by your guide to sightsee in detail, hearing anecdotes and stories about London's past and present, while your chauffeur driven vehicle waits with no parking worries. Put simply - there is no better way to help make the most of your valuable sightseeing time.

ENTRANCE OPTIONS

Groups benefit from special group savings on the cost of entrance tickets, which are offered with fast track entry.

FOOD OPTIONS

Enhance your group sightseeing experience with our range of lunch bags, traditional pub meals or afternoon tea services. All are offered with special priority service, exclusively to London Magical Tours guests to help avoid delays and ensure you make the most of your day of sightseeing. These can be prebooked at the time of booking.

TOUR DATES / TIMES / LANGUAGES

Private group tours are available daily throughout the year. For normal tour times, see the page of the individual tour of interest, all of which are available for groups. Night tours and outside working hour quotations are also available on request. Tour prices are quoted in English. Tours are also available in most languages through our specialist multi-lingual guide team, including Spanish, French, Italian, Russian, Japanese, Korean, Mandarin and Cantonese. Language surcharges may apply.

Tour Comments

group trips london

Wow the history of London is far more interesting than we had expected. It was great to go to the different parts of town and hear all of the stories of London in a short period of time. Highly recommended.

Mr. Gibson and extended family, USA

group trips london

Simply don't think twice about doing this. It was just magical!

Miss. Gonzalez Group from Mexico

group trips london

The tour of London was wonderfully educational. Our guide was impressively learned of the history of London and actively involved the students. Although the goal of our trip was to study French, we enjoyed learning about another piece of European culture and history. In addition, we experienced an authentic pub lunch of fish and chips, while watching the Royal Wedding on the television, a historic event!

About london : rated 4.4 /5 (based on 36 reviews) | Packages starting from ₹28,350/-

London Group Package

London is a city of diverse cultures and 300 spoken languages with a great history of ruling upon the various parts of the world. The London group tour packages will give you an experience to the quality of life and absorb the creativity of the city so that you can enhance your thinking by taking it beyond the limits. You can unveil the charismatic sequences on the London group trip by visiting places like the British Museum, Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, Kew Gardens, and Hampton Court Palace.

Activities to do on a London Group Tour

London, being a city of music, poetry, art, and architecture, has a lot more to offer. For tourists, London keeps an unlimited amount of activity area where you can spend your time freely.

  • Iconic London-Eye Visit:  A visit to the giant London Eye is a compulsion for every visit to London. You take the cabin of the giant wheel which takes you up to the highest so you can enjoy the panoramic view of the city.
  • Nightlife at Shore-ditch:  Shore-ditch is London’s most famous nightlife spot full of clubs, bars, and pubs. It’s a place for people who seek places with themes and attractions. There are so many themed clubs with live music.
  • Watch a Movie in BFI:  British Film Institute in London’s famous and iconic movie point situated on the Southbank where you spend your evening watching blockbusters and cult classics every day.
  • Visit Baker Street:  A must see, the road contains fantastic places of interest like Madame Tussauds and Sherlock Holmes Museum. You may have seen the area in the Sherlock Holmes series as well.
  • Live a day in O2:  O2 is now a destination for live music shows and stage shows. It also arranges movies in its large theatre regularly. It’s a perfect place for beautiful evenings. For audacious experience, you can climb up to the O2 peak to have marvelous views of the city, and you can take the cable car ride from the top of the dome as well.

Perfect Time to Visit London

London is known to have humid and wet weather throughout the year, so having an umbrella is a must. The best months to travel to London are from March to May. It is the early spring when the weather is mostly pleasant and blooming. For this time, you will have to make your mind to pay more than the usual rents for accommodation and airfares. The streets and attractions get over-crowded. In winters, though the temperature is low and you may find the rates cheaper, the crowd you will encounter will be almost the same because London is one of the most visited tourist places in the world.

The Power of Shared Experiences in Group Trips to London

Traveling as a group opens up unique opportunities for shared experiences. In particular, when embarking on group trips to London , the city’s rich history and vibrant culture serve as the perfect backdrop for creating lasting memories together.

The Bonding Effect of Iconic Landmarks

Navigating through a new city with your friends or family can lead to stronger connections and bonding. One way is by exploring iconic landmarks such as the Tower of London.

This historic castle holds countless stories within its walls, allowing you all to delve into England’s past together. There’s nothing quite like standing in awe at these relics that have weathered centuries – it truly puts time into perspective.

Beyond historical attractions, why not experience pomp and circumstance firsthand? Visiting Buckingham Palace , one gets an intimate glimpse into royal life. Imagine watching the Changing the Guard ceremony with your companions – an unforgettable moment guaranteed. Such shared experiences often end up being highlights remembered fondly years later.

Cultural Exchange Through Shared Learning Opportunities

Group travel also promotes cultural exchange among members while interacting with locals or other tourists alike.

Say you’re attending a workshop about British traditions: It sparks interesting discussions among yourselves which deepens understanding about each other’s perspectives besides learning something new from experts present there too.

Tasting Traditional British Cuisine Together

Let’s not forget about the delights of traditional British cuisine. Trying local dishes such as fish and chips, shepherd’s pie or scones together can be a fun adventure in itself.

A culinary exploration adds an extra layer to your group travel experience – comparing tastes, sharing food stories from back home while learning about London’s rich gastronomic history – all at the same table.

Cost-Saving Advantages of Group Trips to London

Traveling as a group can unlock several financial benefits, making your journey more affordable. Let’s uncover these advantages together.

Affordable Accommodations for Groups

Uncovering the ideal accommodation in a city like London is essential for group savings. But did you know that booking accommodations as a group can lead to significant savings? That’s right.

Hotels often give group discounts and deals in London , which means cost-effective travel options are within reach. It’s an easy way to save money without compromising on comfort or location.

You might be surprised at how much you can save by opting for budget-friendly accommodations suitable for groups visiting London, especially when compared with solo traveler expenses.

Tours Designed for Groups

Beyond just lodging, many tour companies also offer special rates if you book their services as part of a larger group. Take the case of EF Go Ahead Tours – they offer excellent guided tours around England including its crown jewel: London Guided Tours.

Eating Out & Activities Cost Less Too

Dining out or engaging in local activities doesn’t have to break the bank either. Restaurants often provide discounted rates for large parties while numerous attractions across the city may also grant reduced admission fees if you’re exploring with friends or family members.

Savings on Transportation Costs

In addition, let’s not forget about transportation costs – one big advantage here is pooling resources when it comes down transport from A-to-B throughout your trip.

Remember,  the more, the merrier – and cheaper. . With group trips to London, you can explore this historic city without putting a huge dent in your wallet. The key is to plan wisely and take advantage of these cost-saving opportunities.

Practical Tip:  Should you be on the hunt for bigger savings , think about planning your trips during off-peak times.

Tailored Group Activities in London

London, a city bursting with activities and attractions, is an ideal destination for group trips. But what makes the journey even more special are tailored experiences that cater to your unique interests.

Group-Friendly Attractions and Experiences

London offers countless attractions designed specifically for groups, each promising unforgettable memories. A classic example would be a visit to The Tower of London, where you can delve into history as a team.

An excursion on the iconic London Eye, or perhaps taking part in interactive workshops at the Science Museum,

Planning Personalized Itineraries for Groups

No two groups have identical preferences. Hence, it’s essential to customize your itinerary based on everyone’s likes and dislikes.

A great starting point could be exploring common themes – like art lovers heading towards Tate Modern or food enthusiasts embarking on a gastronomic tour across Borough Market. This personalized approach will make sure everyone feels included during this exciting adventure.

Sports-Based Group Activities

If your gang shares enthusiasm over sports, why not schedule some time at Wimbledon? From tennis tournaments to museum tours, this sporting haven has something enjoyable for every fan.

Theatre Trips Tailored For Your Troupe

Blessed with one of the world’s finest theatre scenes, watching plays together could form an integral part of any group trip. Catching acclaimed performances like ‘Hamilton’ or ‘The Lion King’ would surely add a theatrical flair to your journey.

Experience the Thrill of Adventure Together

If thrill and excitement are what you’re after, then consider group activities that get your adrenaline pumping. Imagine conquering treetop obstacles at Go Ape or experiencing an immersive zombie apocalypse at Secret Cinema – these shared thrills can bring everyone closer.

Nature Trails for Group Bonding

With nature’s serenity as a backdrop, it creates an ideal setting for personal growth and development.

Discovering Hidden Gems in London as a Group

Group trips to London are filled with the excitement of exploring iconic landmarks, but there’s more to this city than meets the eye. Let’s venture off-the-beaten-path and uncover some lesser-known gems.

Unique Experiences at Covent Garden

Covent Garden , known for its bustling market and grand opera house, also hosts an array of street performances that can make your group trip truly unique. These artists breathe life into the streets, offering unforgettable moments for you and your companions.

The area is also filled with small stores that have a plethora of unique items, from handmade jewelry to delectable chocolates – the perfect presents for those you left behind.

Beyond shopping and entertainment, Covent Garden has another hidden gem: Neal’s Yard. This colorful alleyway is lined with independent eateries serving up organic fare – a true haven for food lovers in your group.

Diving Deeper Into East End’s Street Art Scene

If art fuels your group’s curiosity then it might be time to wander towards East End. The walls here serve as ever-changing canvases showcasing works by world-renowned graffiti artists like Banksy alongside local talent.

A self-guided tour around Brick Lane and Shoreditch lets you appreciate these creative expressions while discussing their deeper meanings within your travel buddies – definitely an enriching experience on any solo traveller in London .

Hampstead Heath Ponds For A Refreshing Swim

You may not think about swimming when planning a trip to London but Hampstead Heath ponds offer just that. Open all year round; these ponds provide a refreshing and exhilarating experience for those brave enough to dip into the chilly waters.

The shared adrenaline rush from such an adventure is sure to strengthen your group’s bond, making this activity a must-try during your London group trips .

Kyoto Garden – A Slice Of Japan In London

Nestled within Holland Park, you’ll find the enchanting Kyoto.

Cultural Exchange and Learning Opportunities in Group Trips to London

Group trips to London open up a world of cultural immersion.

Dive into the rich tapestry of British traditions, engage with local communities, and soak up immersive cultural experiences in this cosmopolitan city.

The Allure of Language and Cultural Exchange

A group trip can provide an enriching platform for language exchange. English may be the dominant tongue, but you’ll find plenty of opportunities to interact with locals speaking different languages too.

This not only enhances your linguistic skills but also gives you insights into various cultures living harmoniously in one city. The interactions let us appreciate our similarities and respect our differences more than ever before.

Fascinating Aspects of British Culture

You don’t just visit landmarks on these group tours; you experience history firsthand at places like the Tower Of London.

In every corner there’s a story waiting to unfold – tales that make learning about British culture incredibly fascinating within a group setting. Your understanding deepens as everyone brings their unique perspectives during discussions – truly an engaging way to learn.

Savoring Traditional Cuisine Together

‘EF Go Ahead Tours’ , offers great foodie adventures where groups can try traditional dishes together.

What could beat sharing laughter over meals while sampling Fish & Chips or sipping Earl Grey tea? It’s all part-and-parcel when it comes to bonding through culinary exploration.

An Unforgettable Trip Through History

Another highlight of group trips is the chance to explore London’s historical sites. These places don’t just provide great photo opportunities; they’re living testimonials of a rich and varied past that shaped today’s Britain.

You’ll walk on cobblestone paths where royalty once tread, gaze upon ancient artifacts, and marvel at architectural wonders – experiences that are amplified when shared with others in your travel group.

Engaging With Local Communities

The essence of this topic is crucial to understanding the broader context. Let’s explore further to lay a solid groundwork.

Trying Traditional British Cuisine as a Group

When it comes to group dining experiences in London , there’s nothing quite like diving into traditional British cuisine together. Sampling classic dishes not only tantalizes your taste buds but also strengthens bonds within the group, making your trip even more memorable.

The Charm of Classic British Dishes

Taste is an integral part of travel, and for groups visiting London, trying out quintessential English fare is a must. Whether it’s Fish & Chips or Beef Wellington, these culinary delights have stood the test of time because they represent Britain’s gastronomic history at its finest.

Fish & Chips, with its perfectly battered fish paired with crispy fries served on newspaper wrappings is perfect for casual get-togethers. For something more formal yet hearty, Beef Wellington is unbeatable – tender beef coated in mushroom duxelles and wrapped up snugly in puff pastry – truly food that warms both heart and belly.

Pudding Time. The Sweet Side of England

No meal would be complete without dessert. So make sure you try some quintessentially English puddings like Sticky Toffee Pudding or Eton Mess during your visit.

Eton Mess, a delightful mix of meringue pieces, fresh strawberries and whipped cream makes summer afternoons feel special while Sticky Toffee Pudding, a dense sponge cake drenched in sweet toffee sauce and often served with vanilla ice-cream or custard, is comfort food at its finest.

Group-friendly Restaurants for a British Food Adventure

With over 6,000 restaurants in London , it might seem daunting to choose the perfect spot for your group. But fear not. Here are some recommendations that serve traditional English fare and cater well to groups.

Check out Rules, . As London’s oldest restaurant, it’s renowned for its specialty in classic game dishes. It’s a must-visit.

Maximizing the Group Experience in London

The city of London offers a vibrant and varied landscape for group travel.

Tips for Seamless Group Travel in London

Making sure everyone is on the same page is key to smooth travels. Regularly touch base with your group members about plans and preferences, but remember to balance scheduled activities with free time. It’s important that each member feels heard and included.

This can boost the atmosphere of your journey, making it more enjoyable for all participants.

Exploring as a Cohesive Unit

A shared experience can strengthen bonds within your group. Try out something new together – perhaps a boat ride down the River Thames or an escape room challenge? The novelty will spark excitement, creating lasting memories tied to both the activity and location.

Your adventures across iconic landmarks like the Tower of London, bustling markets such as Covent Garden, or enjoying traditional British cuisine at popular restaurants add depth to these connections formed during travel.

Finding Balance between Solo Time and Group Activities

Although travelling in groups provides opportunities for shared experiences, individuals may still want some ‘me’ time. Facilitate this by having certain parts of the day allocated as solo exploration periods where people are free to pursue their own interests around town. Remember: you’re not just travelers—you’re also ambassadors representing diverse perspectives.

Safety Considerations while Travelling as a Large Party

In any big city like London, security should be a top priority for travelers. Encourage all to stay mindful of their environment, especially in busy spots. A good tip is having a common meeting point at each location you visit, just in case anyone gets separated from the group.

Group Accommodations

Accommodation can make or break your London experience as a group traveler. Choose lodgings that are centrally located and have easy access to public transport—this will help maximize sightseeing time while minimizing commute hassle.

You could consider staying near popular shopping centers like Harrods or Selfridges for some retail therapy after long days exploring the city.

Practical Tips for Group Accommodations in London

Choosing the right lodging is a crucial part of planning group trips to London. With diverse needs and preferences, you need accommodations that offer comfort without breaking the bank.

Luxury Shopping Near Accommodations

Finding group-friendly accommodations near popular shopping centers can significantly enhance your travel experience. Imagine ending an eventful day with some retail therapy at high-end stores like Harrods, or exploring unique fashion trends at places like Selfridges. Rather than simply shopping, why not take the opportunity to dive into the local culture?

The convenience factor plays a huge role too. Having accommodation nearby means less time spent on commuting and more time for fun.

Selecting The Right Lodging For Your Group Trips

To make sure everyone feels comfortable during their stay, consider different factors before booking your accommodation. Think about space requirements – larger groups might find apartment-style lodgings more convenient than standard hotel rooms. Check if there are communal areas where your group can gather for meals or discussions.

You’ll also want to look into location: staying centrally located will allow easy access to major attractions, reducing transport costs and hassle. Finally, remember to read reviews from other travelers – they provide valuable insights that could help guide your decision-making process.

Tips For Booking And Managing Group Accommodations

Avoid last-minute stress by starting early when booking accommodations for large groups – options tend to get booked up quickly. Make use of online platforms designed specifically for group bookings; these often offer special deals tailored towards larger parties.

When managing your accommodations, clear communication is key. Ensure everyone understands the booking details and expectations during the stay. For instance, you might want to assign roommates beforehand or establish a cleaning rota if staying in self-catered lodgings.

Making Group Accommodations Affordable

Not only is it more fun, but sticking together as a group can also save you some serious dough. When everyone chips in on lodging, suddenly those swanky places become much more affordable.

So, you’ve soaked in the perks of group trips to London. From shared experiences at iconic landmarks like Buckingham Palace and Tower Bridge to saving on costs through group deals – it’s clear why traveling together is a hit.

Unearthing hidden gems such as Covent Garden and engaging with local communities gives your trip that unique touch. It lets you dive deep into British culture while also offering opportunities for language exchange.

You’ve savored the delights of traditional British cuisine and learned about selecting suitable lodgings. Remember, convenience matters!

The journey doesn’t end here though! Keep these insights handy when planning your next adventure because an unforgettable trip awaits you in London!

More About London

The Houses of Parliament with Big Ben, the giant clock and bell, on the banks of the Thames are the classic backdrop of London, with Westminster Abbey, the site of coronations and royal marriages, standing nearby. Enjoy panoramic views from Tower Bridge and visit the nearby Tower of London, with its rich history and the crown jewels of England. Speaking of royalty, catch the changing of the guards at Buckingham Palace, the residence of the reigning monarchs. In central London, enjoy Trafalgar Square, the National Gallery, the British Museum, and St. Paul’s Cathedral. London also has a splendid array of markets to explore, like Covent Garden or Portobello Road on Notting Hill. And for evening entertainment, enjoy world-renowned theaters and lively clubs in London’s West End. With all this and more, the historic and vibrant European capital of London is an absolute must-see.

The heaviest tourist season runs mid-April through mid-October, with another peak around Christmas—though the tide never really ebbs. Spring is the time to see the countryside and the royal London parks and gardens at their freshest; fall to enjoy near-ideal exploring conditions. In late summer, be warned: air-conditioning is rarely found in places other than department stores, modern restaurants, hotels, and cinemas in London, and in a hot summer you'll swelter. Winter can be rather dismal, but all the theatres, concerts, and exhibitions go full speed.

It's virtually impossible to forecast London weather, but you can be fairly certain that it will not be what you expect. It's generally mild—with some savage exceptions, especially in summer. In short, be prepared for anything: layers and an umbrella are your friends.

Tour of London: 5-day small group tour

Explore the greater city of London on a small group tour with Odyssey Traveller for 4 full days.

London is the capital of England and the United Kingdom and one of the major metropolitan centres in the European continent. Its history stretches back to the Romans , who founded the ancient settlement of Londinium in 43 AD. The Romans' London Wall was a defensive wall built around the city and which defined its boundaries until the late Middle Ages . Though the wall was dismantled around the 1700s, sections of it are still visible, snaking through private and public establishments in the city of London. Left largely abandoned after the fall of the Roman Empire, the city later grew and became increasingly prosperous until London itself became the seat of a vast empire that reached its peak during Queen Victoria's reign . The growth of industry ushered in the Industrial Revolution , which led to Britain accounting for nearly a quarter of global industrial production in the 19th century, with British workers becoming the richest men and women in Europe. But the mass migration of people from the countryside to the city also resulted in overcrowded housing, pollution, and unsanitary, disease-ridden living conditions. By the mid-18th century, London was a city of 750,000 people, filled with factories that burned coal and blanketed its buildings with soot. Working and living conditions improved with new government regulations, and the city, surviving widespread damage brought by two world wars, remains an important cultural and commercial centre in the world.

This small group tour is offered to travellers who are seeking a five-day extension in the city as part of an Odyssey Traveller escorted small group tour. Travellers may also consider joining the 21-day Queen Victoria's Great Britain tour , which begins in London and explores other cities in Great Britain.

The tour stays in a centrally located hotel in London. Each day we set out to explore various parts of the city, typically using public transport, including the London tube on occasion, taxis and the rail network to reach the destinations selected, taking in 2-3 key features or attractions of the city. We will be aided by knowledgeable, local guides who share the ancient, classical, and recent history of the city with the group as we explore. We typically use public and private transport or walk around the city for visits.

Highlights of this London small group tour:

  • Walk the London Wall and view a portion of the wall underground at Spitalfields Market.
  • View the Temple of Mithras. The remains of the temple was discovered in 1950s in Walbrook and was reconstructed for public viewing. The religion and rituals centred on the god Mithras remains a mystery, though we know the Mithraic religion was practised in Rome, especially among members of the Roman military. The Museum of London houses relics from the original temple.
  • Walking along the Thames will give us a view of the many places we can explore: Big Ben, the Houses of Parliament, the London Eye, Tate Modern and Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre.
  • Enjoy one show at the theatre in the west end.
  • Attend typically with a guide up to 3 exhibitions in London
  • In 2019, Buckingham Palace is open to visitors from July 20 until September 29. Visit the Queen's official London residence and explore its lavish State Rooms.
  • Take the train to Eton/Windsor for the day with a local guide touring this local area.

London: A Travel Guide Through Time

Matthew Green

Let time traveller Dr Matthew Green be your guide to six extraordinary periods in London's history - the ages of Shakespeare, medieval city life, plague, coffee houses, the reign of Victoria and the Blitz.

We'll turn back the clock to the time of Shakespeare and visit a savage bull and bear baiting arena on the Bankside. In medieval London, we'll circle the walls as the city lies barricaded under curfew, while spinning further forward in time we'll inhale the 'holy herb' in an early tobacco house, before peering into an open plague pit. In the 18th century, we'll navigate the streets in style with a ride on a sedan chair, and when we land in Victorian London, we'll take a tour of freak-show booths and meet the Elephant Man.

You'll meet pornographers and traitors, actors and apothecaries, the mad, bad and dangerous to know, all desperate to show you the thrilling and vibrant history of the world's liveliest city.

London Made Us: A Memoir of a Shape-Shifting City

Robert Elms

A personal journey - part anecdotal, part impressionistic - through London's constantly shifting cityscape by BBC Radio London's Robert Elms. 'London is a giant kaleidoscope, which is forever turning. Take your eye off it for more than a moment and you're lost.'

Robert Elms has seen his beloved city change beyond all imagining. London in his lifetime has morphed from a piratical, bomb-scarred playground, to a swish cosmopolitan metropolis. Motorways driven through lost communities, accents changing, skyscrapers appearing. Yet still it remains to him the greatest place on earth.

Elms takes us back through time and place to myriad Londons. He is our guide through a place that has seen scientific experiments conducted in subterranean lairs and a small community declare itself an independent nation; a place his great-great-grandfather made the Elms' home over a century ago and a city that has borne witness to world-changing events.

Hidden History of the Tower of London: England's Most Notorious Prisoners

JOHN PAUL DAVIS

Famed as the ultimate penalty for traitors, heretics and royalty alike, being sent to the Tower is known to have been experienced by no less than 8,000 unfortunate souls. Many of those who were imprisoned in the Tower never returned to civilisation and those who did, often did so without their head! It is hardly surprising that the Tower has earned itself a reputation among the most infamous buildings on the planet. There have, of course, been other towers. Practically every castle ever built has consisted of at least one; indeed, even by the late 14th century, the Tower proudly boasted no less than 21. Yet even as early as the 1100s, the effect that the first Tower had on the psyche of the local population was considerable. The sight of the dark four-pointed citadel - at the time the largest building in London - as it appeared against the backdrop of the expanding city gave rise to many legends, ranging from the exact circumstances of its creation to what went on within its strong walls. In ten centuries what once consisted of a solitary keep has developed into a complex castle around which the history of England has continuously evolved. So revered has it become that legend has it that should the Tower fall, so would the kingdom. Beginning with the early tales surrounding its creation, this book investigates the private life of an English icon. Concentrating on the Tower's developing role throughout the centuries, not in terms of its physical expansion into a site of unique architectural majesty or many purposes but through the eyes of those who experienced its darker side, it pieces together the, often seldom-told, human story and how the fates of many of those who stayed within its walls contributed to its lasting effect on England's - and later the UK's - destiny. From ruthless traitors to unjustly killed Jesuits, vanished treasures to disappeared princes and jaded wives to star-crossed lovers, this book provides a raw and at times unsettling insight into its unsolved mysteries and the lot of its unfortunate victims, thus explaining how this once typical castle came to be the place we will always remember as THE TOWER. AUTHOR: John Paul Davis is the international bestselling author of ten thriller novels and three historical biographies 40 b/w illustrations

Shadows Of The Workhouse: The Drama Of Life In Postwar London

Jennifer Worth

In this follow up to CALL THE MIDWIFE, Jennifer Worth, a midwife working in the docklands area of East London in the 1950s tells more stories about the people she encountered.There's Jane, who cleaned and generally helped out at Nonnatus House - she was taken to the workhouse as a baby and was allegedly the illegitimate daughter of an aristocrat. Peggy and Frank's parents both died within 6 months of each other and the children were left destitute. At the time, there was no other option for them but the workhouse. The Reverend Thornton-Appleby-Thorton, a missionary in Africa, visits the Nonnatus nuns and Sister Julienne acts as matchmaker. And Sister Monica Joan, the eccentric ninety-year-old nun, is accused of shoplifting some small items from the local market. She is let off with a warning, but then Jennifer finds stolen jewels from Hatton Garden in the nun's room.These stories give a fascinating insight into the resilience and spirit that enabled ordinary people to overcome their difficulties.

London's Underground: The Story of the Tube

Oliver Green

A comprehensive guide to the London Underground, combining a historical overview, illustrations and newly commissioned photography. It is impossible to imagine London without the Tube: the beating heart of the city, the Underground shuttles over a billion passengers each year below its busy streets and across its leafy suburbs. The distinctive roundel, colour-coded maps and Johnston typeface have become design classics, recognised and imitated worldwide. Opening in 1863, the first sections were operated by steam engines, yet throughout its long history the Tube has been at the forefront of contemporary design, pioneering building techniques, electrical trains and escalators, and business planning. Architects such as Leslie W. Green and Charles Holden developed a distinctively English version of Modernism, and the latest stations for the Jubilee line extension, Overground and Elizabeth line carry this aesthetic forward into the twenty-first century.In this major work published in association with Transport for London, Tube expert Oliver Green traces the history of the Underground, following its troubles and triumphs, its wartime and peacetime work, and the essential part it has played in shaping London's economy, geography, tourism and identity. Specially commissioned photography by Benjamin Graham (UK Landscape Photographer of the Year 2017) brings the story to life in vivid portraits of London Underground's stations, tunnels and trains.

What travelers are saying

"I would say there were two highlights that stand out. The first one was the Island of Capri . It has so much beauty to me. It is simply breathtaking. The other highlight is the ruins on Pompeii. It is a good example of viewing how a culture lived and then perished"

"My experience with TruTravels has been one of the best travel experiences to date. I was a little concerned about having a small group - but the tour leaders have made every activity fun and engaging. I would definitely say they are friends. The organisation and local knowledge was great, they were great fun whilst remaining professional and in control. The nights out in Canggu were great, getting to meet the other tour leaders and Tru staff meeting the other tour groups is a great idea. I really cannot stress enough how much of a great trip I've had with TruTravels. From booking, to pre-tour communications, through to the last 10 days - it has been well organised, managed and delivered by amazing guides. Thanks so much to Rianna, Marta and Jonny for their enthusiasm throughout the tour, their concern for when I was sick and generally for everything they did to make this an amazing Bali Experience. Much love for the tour guides!!!I would definitely recommend a trip with TruTravels!!"

"We joined the Intrepid “Real Italy Food Tour” and enjoyed it thoroughly. Our tour guide, Micol, was very knowledgeable and provided us with lots of good information.

London Tour Selection Trips

  • Choosing Central London as the basepoint of your trip will be easier and cheaper to move around the whole city and explore the major destination through the central area. The cost of accommodation is a bit higher, but it gets covered in what you save in traveling from distant hotels to the main hub, also saving you lots of time.
  • As soon as you reach London, get an Oyster card. You can get it from mostly tube stations and can preload an amount that you can use on the go during your travel. Once you reach the daily cap after 3 to 4 journeys, then you can travel around for free for the rest of your day.
  • You can also purchase an Oyster card online and have it mailed to you before you depart for London! But be sure to leave enough time to receive it.
  • Plan your trip well before arriving. Choose the desired destinations, mode of transportation for every point, make advanced bookings, etc. The busy city is always filled with people, and you will waste your time and money if you don't preplan your trip.
  • Don’t try to explore every point in the city in one trip. The enormous city is full of worth visiting places that you can’t completely explore even in weeks. So, plan your trip conveniently for 3 to 4 days and map your route accordingly.
  • London is undoubtedly not a cheap city, but there are various free to visit great spots in the city. There are various parks, gardens, and museums like the British Museum, National Gallery, National History Museum, Science Museum, and many more.
  • You can pay through your credit card, but no currency is acceptable other than a sterling pound, so keeps a sufficient amount with you.
  • Keep a travel adapter because the UK plugs are different from what you find in other European countries and the US & Canada.
  • Tips are usually not expected in the UK as the service charges are included in the restaurant bill, and they charge you 10 - 15% service charges in addition to the bill. But you can leave a 10% tip if you are happy with the service.
  • Choose your transportation mode according to the destination and the distance. The fastest and most convenient method is through the underground tubes that save you from the traffic hassle, but you will miss the sights in that. At times the distance between your destinations will be so small that it would be better to walk between the two stops instead of spending time in getting on and off the tube/bus.
  • One of the best ways of sightseeing across London is to rent a bike and go on paddling.
  • The unpredictable weather of the city demands you to keep an umbrella with you all the time. Winter or summer, you never know when it will start to rain, so pack your umbrella or raincoat with you and check the weather forecast every time you step out of your hotel.

Best time to visit London

The largest city and capital of the England attracts millions of people annually, round the year. Every season has its own perks and benefits, and it depends very much on your interest that which time suits you the best. There is no offseason in London; hence, if you expect empty streets to have the region all to yourself is nearly impossible.

The busy city is the hub of the country and is always crowded with local or international visitors. There are times when the crowds are small when a huge bunch of tourists has not yet arrived but still expect crowd everywhere. No matter what time of the year you choose to travel to London, one thing that you have to keep with you always is an umbrella. The unpredictable weather in London can get you trapped in the rain anytime. So, better be ready for it.

Summertime, June – August , is the most popular time, and various people choose to travel to London during these months. The main reason is the pleasantly warm weather that will make you so comfortable that you won't mind the huge tourist crowds.

It is also the best time to visit if you want to visit the royal sites as they are open to the public during summer when the occupants are away for a holiday. From late June to early July you will have the chance to enjoy Harrods's summer sale and many other good summer sales.

Autumn, mid-September to November , brings with it a mild chill, signaling the approaching winters, but the weather is still comfortably pleasant. Streets are still crowded with tourists to some extent. If you are interested in experiencing the local culture, then you might get a chance to witness any of the annual events like Guy Fawkes Night, The Lord Mayor's Show, etc.

Being a low tourist season, due to the freezing temperatures, wintertime is best to get the discounted deals on everything, except December. The post-Christmas sales in January, along with discounts on airfare and accommodation, can let you save a lot. If you don’t mind all packed up in warm clothes, then you should travel to London during winter as that will help you save a lot in every aspect. Also, there will be fewer people and shorter queues for everything, saving you lots of time as well.

The second best time after summer is the spring season with its beautiful blooming flowers. Enjoy the beauty of royal gardens and parks with various colors inviting you to indulge in the natural beauty. The winter chill has left already, and the summer warmth welcomes you with open arms. Tourists have not yet arrived, so you will find lesser crowds everywhere during early spring. This time of the year has minimum rainfall and is considered to be the best time of the year concerning the weather.

London Breed in China: Here's where SF mayor will go, who she'll meet

San Francisco Mayor London Breed is headed to China this weekend on an economic mission.

ABC7 News first reported the trip last week, but Breed made a formal announcement Wednesday morning.

She said she is traveling with a group of Asian business and community leaders.

The trip includes stops in Hong Kong, Shenzhen, Guangzhou, Beijing and Shanghai.

RELATED: SF Mayor London Breed heading to China in April to promote tourism

Breed says the weeklong trip is intended to bring in new business and tourism to San Francisco.

While there, she will meet with Chinese-based tech businesses along with Chinese airlines. Leadership from SFO will join her on the trip.

She also wants to talk about bringing pandas back to the San Francisco Zoo.

Breed was invited to China by President Xi Jinping during last year's APEC Summit.

RELATED: Chinese tourists noticeably absent from San Francisco, numbers show

"I am honored to be invited to travel to China and meet with leaders in business, innovation, and government to cultivate economic opportunities and strengthen ties between San Francisco and cities across the region," Mayor Breed said in a press release. "Our Chinese and Chinese American communities are core to the fabric of our City and have greatly contributed to San Francisco's rich history and economic vitality. Building on the success of APEC last November, it is critical that we continue to build on that momentum to strengthen San Francisco's international partnerships and maximize economic and business opportunities that are so valuable for San Francisco's future."

The trip is being paid for by a non-profit group and marks the 45th anniversary of the San Francisco-Shanghai Sister City relationship.
