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…
For those with a particular interest in English literature, 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 – and sit down for a drink in one of the few remaining Victorian ‘gin palaces’ while we tell you a bit more about this popular British spirit.
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, find out what happened in some of the most promiscuous streets in the capital 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! Not to mention the countless photo opportunities you’ll have overlooking London, or inside one of London’s oldest churches, which has featured in hit movies, including Guy Richie’s Sherlock Holmes. On this tour there really is something for everyone!
