Walk, cycle or take the double-decker - there are numerous ways to tour London, but the last thing you want to do is only take the tube and miss the sights above ground. London is extremely walkable and increasingly easier to get around by bike, so it makes sense to put your pedal to the metal or pound your feet on the footpath. Walk the Mall or through Green Park to Buckingham Palace and watch the Changing of the Guard. Take a street art walking tour through East London or hire a Barclay bike and cycle along the city's canals. Doing a London tour means you'll learn something new each step of the way.
London is also a great platform to explore the English countryside. Take a day trip to Stonehenge, or escape to the rocking seaside town of Brighton. Trip to Windsor Castle and take a picnic in the Queen's front lawn, visit the academics in Cambridge, or visit New College where Harry Potter was filmed in Oxford - there are plenty of sights within just a few short hours of the hustle and bustle of London.
There is much to do in London too and if time is of the essence, and you've only got a few days in between a Europe jaunt or onward destination, a tour will save you time reading the tube map upside down. Take in a famous musical in the West End, hit the shops along Oxford Street, eat a curry and shop for vintage along Brick Lane, see a gig in the evening and get amongst London's always-on nightlife. You could spend a week alone in the British Museum, then there's the Tate and V&A too. There's plenty of affordable London tours and activities on offer, so call us today to chat about more things to do and see on your London holiday.
