Join us from the comfort of your own home as we bring London to you with our live-stream virtual tours. Read our reviews on Google, we’ll make London come alive with pictures, maps, old paintings while we virtually walk the streets with Google earth’s street view, with stories told by an experienced London-born tour guide.
The world’s greatest museum, we showcase important objects like the Rosetta Stone, the Parthenon Marbles, Roman Silver, Mayan Sculpture and a lot more. All told by an ex-museum tour guide
Imagine Winston Churchill turning up in a top hat with a pistol to fight Russians. Riots against the Fascists. The ‘elephant’ man, the nurse heroine Edith Cavell, the Krays, Stalin and Trotsky and an executioner of a king. It’s all around this high street.
This tour gives a message of hope with humour and science. The story of London’s hygiene starts 2,000 years ago, then goes pear-shaped. How a lack of understanding of not ridding of our waste correctly led to awful cholera outbreaks, the ‘Great Stink’, and how Dr John Snow eventually solved it.
All of our tours can be prepared for school classes, making history educational, fun and interfaced with your curriculum. We need a minimum class size of 30 and can give a free taster tour for teachers. Contact us for more information.
It’s more than just the tennis. The amazing story of a little village on a hill outside London that became world famous. Highwaymen, duels at dawn and more!
A virtual walk between two iconic London landmarks to Bankside, the Elizabethan playground of theatre, bear-baiting and brothels. Hear about the frozen Thames, the Great Fire and prison life.
The road called Strand beside the River Thames is barely a mile long yet has so much to tell. Great riverside palaces, an Egyptian obelisk, Benjamin Franklin’s house, the idyllic gardens of Temple and a 900 year old old Crusader church.
What was it like to be king of the world’s first superpower? The Assyrians once dominated the known world and created the first multi-nation empire. One of the Assyrian kings, Ashurnasirpal II controlled the people, made laws, managed the religion, he was also a warrior king, leading sophisticated amphibious assaults.
It was one of the most amazing archaeological finds ever discovered. Hidden in the soil of eastern England for one and half thousand years were glittering riches of gold, silver and garnets, an exquisitely crafted helmet and a long ship. They revolutionised our view of the ‘dark ages’ and the island’s connection to the rest of the world.
A fascinating story of the most famous square in London. A memorial to teenage love , a place of violent punishment, a place of celebration and protests. First of all it’s a memorial for England’s greatest hero.
The area of the Isle of Dogs is an amazing story about resilience against failure. Hear about when it once declared independence, a place of of bustling docks filled with rum, of pirate executions, of digging the world‘s first under-river tunnel and more.
There’s so much history and so many stories about Buckingham Palace and its surrounds, so join us on a fascinating one and a half hour virtual tour. 300 years ago the palace started off as a townhouse for a Duke, nearly became a museum but went on to be the London residence of all of Britain’s sovereigns since an 18 year old Queen Victoria moved in 1837.
