London Tours

Platform 9 ¾ is just one of the stops on the Harry Potter London Tour and just one of the marvellous London tours on offer in the UK capital. How about a Buckingham Palace tour? Or a London bus or walking tour? There are more London sightseeing tours than you can poke a posh corgi at!

Get the royal treatment in London

And while we're talking about all things posh, even you, a commoner, can make it inside the royal residence on a Buckingham Palace tour. You probably won't get to meet the Queen for tea, but tours of Buckingham Palace are quite the experience. Maybe you'll see the Queen walking her little corgis?

How would Harry Potter tour London? On a quidditch stick? Or in a flying car? Unfortunately the Harry Potter London Tour isn't on a flying vehicle, but it is totally awesome. If you're a Harry Potter fan, these tours are a must-do. Another famous London character is Jack the Ripper. If you'd like to know the full story behind the Whitechapel murders, take the Jack the Ripper Tour London. It's a, err, ripper!

If you're after a London sightseeing tour that covers all the big landmarks like Big Ben, Buckingham Palace and Piccadilly Circus, why not jump onboard a London bus tour? Big Bus Tours London offers hop-on, hop-off double-decker buses to 50 locations all over London.

If you want more from your bus tour, jump onboard the London Duck Tour. It's an amazing amphibious adventure stopping at all of London's famous landmarks in the water and on the road. London Duck Tours are definitely a different way to see the iconic sights.

what are people saying about tours?

Having not travelled too much I wasn't sure if a tour would be be my cup of tea. Oh how I was wrong, we had an extremely packed 1 week on the west coast of USA and saw some amazing things including The Grand Canyon and Monument Valley, and the small group was filled with great people, very down to earth and loads of fun. Highly recommended!
