What you'll do

On this private walking tour we will explore London's key sights and beautiful parks. The itinerary is flexible and can be adjusted slightly based on your preferences. Please note this is a private tour so only 1 person may book each tour slot. However you're welcome to bring up to 3 people on the tour. If you'd like to bring a few more friends or family, thats fine, please message me to discuss. We'll start at the iconic buildings of Parliament, strolling past Westminster Abbey before continuing on through St. James Park to Buckingham Palace. From there we'll walk through leafy Green Park, passing the Wellington Arch on our way to Hyde Park. As we meander through Hyde Park we'll see the Rose Gardens, Princess Diana's memorial fountain... Farther north in the park we'll see the towering Albert Memorial before we arrive at Kensington Palace where we will walk through the beautiful public sunken gardens. From here we will head towards Holland Park with its beautiful Kyoto Garden (complete with peacocks!), stopping en route at the Leighton House Museum for a bit of ornate beauty and historical site.
