Full description
You'll follow your host on a winding journey through London's royal past as you explore the age-old route from Westminster to Covent Garden and discover the rich and vibrant cultural heritage that was.

Meet your guide at 10:00 AM outside Westminster Underground Station. Look at the Elizabeth Tower of the Houses of Parliament, home to the famous bells of Big Ben. Walk past Westminster Abbey, where many royals have married, and continue through two of London’s most charming parks. See two lesser-known churches near Westminster Abbey, before watching the royal swans glide through the ponds and the protected bird sanctuaries of the secluded shrubberies.

Stop outside Buckingham Palace, and see if the state flag is flying - an indication that the Queen is in residence. Then, discover Westminster’s best street for some retail therapy. Enjoy a quick bite to eat or a coffee at an unknown café, located above one of the area’s largest bookshops. Get panoramic views of Big Ben and Westminster Abbey as an add-on treat to your afternoon tea.

Next, stroll past the upmarket grocers used by the Queen, and the most expensive restaurant in London - which fortunately has slightly more affordable lunch options! Continue into chaotic Piccadilly Circus, often compared to New York's Times Square, before navigating the numerous squares and backstreets leading to Covent Garden.

Wander around the covered market to discover unique handmade and designer treasures to take home. Hear some of the street musicians (buskers) and performers, who must apply to the local authorities to win the right to play in the prestigious venue.
