Our newest virtual walking tour is a wonderful introduction to the sights and sounds of London town and based on our award winning 3 hour walking tour, though the video edition comes in at just under 2 hours.
We will start at Westminster and see views over the River Thames and then explore round Parliament Square to see the Houses of Parliament, Big Ben, Westminster Abbey and other famous locations.
Then we will head up through Whitehall to take a peek into Downing Street, the home of the British Prime Minister and Chancellor amongst others. This is the heart of government and all the surrounding imposing buildings are full of the comings and goings of government. We will also pause at The Cenotaph, our primary national memorial to the fallen of the war-dead.
Continuing towards Trafalgar Square we visit Horse-guards Parade, home to the Household Cavalry and the iconic Admiralty Arch. Trafalgar Square itself is massive and surrounded by galleries and museums. The square itself is dominated by Nelsons Column and if fountains and giant statues of lions are you thing, then this is the place to be.
From Trafalgar Square we will wonder up through theatre land with a visit to chic Covent Garden. Then onwards through Leicester Square, home of film premiers and through China Town to Picadilly Circus.
We’ll travel up Regents Street and walk through one of the oldest and most stylish old shopping arcades in the world as we pass through Mayfair and then into St James and the Royal Parks.
Of course no visit to London is complete with seeing Buckingham Palace and we’ll visit there, St James Palace and see a few other Royal residences along the way before we make our way back to where we started under the shadow of Big Ben.
This tour was filmed in November 2020 during the height of the Covid pandemic so not only do we have deserted streets to see in all their glory but also the trees and parks are glowing in their autumnal glory.
