Full description
Your London shopping tour begins at Borough Market, one of the oldest markets in the city. You start with a barista made coffee of your choice or tea if you prefer, then you will make a beeline to a great stall to sample handmade gourmet chocolates, originally crafted for Gordon Ramsey. You will also have the opportunity to purchase additional food and drinks at your own discretion.

After the market, you continue to explore the cobbled streets and winding alleyways in search of some of London’s hidden gems. You will pass historic sites including Southwark Cathedral, the ruins of Winchester Palace and Sir Francis Drake’s famous ship “The Golden Hind”.

With a unique view of London Bridge, you will also get to the bottom of its famous rhyme. Then you will pass the notorious Clink Prison as you take in the sight of one London’s oldest pubs, where characters such as Shakespeare and Samuel Johnson were said to drink. You will also get to see Shakespeare’s The Globe Theatre and hear tales of the famous bard, only yards away from where he once lived. You will walk along the Southbank of the River Thames where you have plenty of opportunities to take pictures from some of the city’s best vantage points. At various spots you will get to see London’s famous street performers in action. The magnificent, imposing structure of The Tate Modern is where the tour finishes with a perfect view of St Paul’s Cathedral across the river.
