Our Historic London tour is available every Monday and Thursday to anyone who wants to join and does not wish to have a private tour. Our public tours are tours which anyone can sign up to, and will be shared with a maximum of 15 people per guide.

This tour is perfect for Chinese tourists looking for an insight into British history, literature and architecture.
We’ll take you to the secluded remains of a Roman garrison fort and the old London Wall, giving you a real sense of what the city of London used to look like. We’ll even take you underground to the remains of a Roman amphitheatre and tell you all about how it got there and what goes on above ground at the same location today…
On this tour, we’ll show you some of the most beautiful and hidden Norman churches in the city, many of which were destroyed in the Great Fire of London but have since been rebuilt by Sir Christopher Wren – one of Britain’s finest architects.
For those with a particular interest in English literature, you will be walking some of the streets referred to in Dickens’ most famous work, we’ll show you the church garden that inspired the words of Wordsworth, and we’ll take you to the neighbourhoods where Shakespeare used to live, write and perform.
But it’s not all about the sites on this tour. You’ll have the chance to try award-winning sausage rolls – a classic British snack!
There are plenty of surprises on this tour, and we’ll show you why not all Brits were ladies and gentlemen back in the day… You’ll stand on an old public execution site and pass what was the most feared institution in London for many centuries, learning about its most famous inmates and what happened to those who misbehaved. On this tour there really is something for everyone!
