Full description
See London from a Londoner's perspective, and learn what it is to be a native. You will start your tour on the world-famous Oxford Street, which boasts 300 high-street stores, where you can learn of its hidden gruesome past. You will then make your way down from the high street, through boutique Mayfair stores and ancient arcades. You can learn about London's bizarre and fascinating laws, enforced by beadles, and window shop to your hearts content.

Next, head through the infamous Piccadilly Circus, once the go-to place for Shakespearean garb, but now a hub of London's tourism. You can see the site of London's film premieres, perhaps catching a glimpse of celebrities on the way.

For Harry Potter fans, you can see the top filming locations, and learn about JK Rowling's life in London, before following the route of the "Deatheaters" through Trafalgar Square to the river Thames. Once on the river, jump aboard a sightseeing cruise (complete with a bar) to Borough Market, the home of London's finest food. Throughout your tour you will also encounter London's best taverns and pubs (including the oldest in the UK), as well as the Royal Palaces and their Royal Parks, top film locations, top music-history sites, and countless pieces of stunning street art.
