Get the full scope of London’s history on this combo tour of both Westminster and the Old City. This semi-private tour, welcoming up to 10 people, will trace London’s Roman roots as it rose to construct a world-famous skyline including Parliament and the Gherkin.

Our guides will share stories about monarchs and leaders, like Queen Elizabeth II and Winston Churchill, while also taking advantage of your local guide, who will be more than willing to share their favorite addresses as you explore together. And yes, they can even tell you where to go for a pint and some fish and chips – there’s some history to learn there as well!
Afterwards, discover London’s historical origins on the site of its earliest settlements in the square mile known as the City. Relive scenes from The Da Vinci Code at the Temple Church, former headquarters to the Knights Templar.
