Welcome to our virtual tours of London

See and hear London come alive with dynamic and engaging content, live-streamed Google earth’s street views all bound together with lots of local stories told by an experienced London-born tour guide. Our tours are so much more than a Powerpoint presentation and a voice. Read our reviews on Google here and hope you can join us soon!

Highlights of the British Museum

Statue of Rameses the Secondin the British Museum on a black background

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

London’s East End: Whitechapel High Street

A fruit stall on Whitechapel High Street in Tower Hamlets, London

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.

Surviving an epidemic 150 years ago

The Dr John Snow Pub on Broadwick Street in Soho, London

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.

Tours for schools

West Africa on an old globe

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.

The Weird and Wonderful Wimbledon Walk

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!

St Paul’s Cathedral to London Bridge

St Paul's Cathedral with the Millenium Bridge over the Thames in the foreground

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.

A Stroll Down the Strand

A Painting of Somerset House and St May's church in the Strand

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.

King of the World: Assyria in the British Museum

A nineteenth century painting of Nimrud in Assyria, with the river Tigris, a ziggurat and the North West Palace.

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.

The Story of Sutton Hoo

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.

Trafalgar Square and Lord Nelson

Trafalgar Square on a cloudy day with fountains and the National Gallery in the background

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.

Canary Wharf and Limehouse

A painting of West India Keys on the Isle of Dogs in the nineteenth century

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.

Buckingham Palace, The Mall and St James’s Park

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.

“It was incredible”

An amazing, online walking tour from St Paul’s Cathedral to Bankside. Loona, was extremely welcoming and also very knowledgeable. He brought the history of this area to life, with the many tales of life along this little area. It was incredible! The resources used were engaging and detailed. Loona interacted with his participants , making the viewer feel actively involved with the experience. I thoroughly recommend this tour. It was fabulous and I shall definitely be expoloring Loona’s other tours.

“A wide range of interesting visual material – Google Earth, old photographs, maps and period illustrations.It was incredible”

A very enjoyable tour of Canary Wharf and Limehouse by Loona Hazarika which I recommend highly. Wide-ranging, covering the history of the Isle of Dogs and the development of Canary Wharf from its role in the British Empire to the financial powerhouse of today. Wide range of interesting visual material – Google Earth, old photographs, maps and period illustrations. Well planned, friendly and humorous presentation

“Exceptionally well presented and most informative and was one of the most professionally delivered on line lectures that I have attended.”

I had not managed to join a tour by Loona before and was very pleasantly surprised at the professionalism, knowledge, delivery and attention to detail displayed. The talk was on line and dealt with that area of London close to and including Buckingham palace. It was exceptionally well presented and most informative and was one of the most professionally delivered on line lectures that I have attended. Priced at under £10 it represented very good value for money and I look forward to attending future tours by Loona

“A mix of historic and contemporary information, lots of really good visuals and pauses for questions”

This was the first virtual tour I’ve done with Let’s Discover London, but it definitely won’t be the last. Loona took us for a very informative & entertaining Stroll down the Strand (banana optional!) and it was great. A mix of historic and contemporary information, lots of really good visuals and pauses for questions. Can thoroughly recommend and am looking to book another tour.

“A a first class tour guide, an excellent group facilitator, inspiring, enthusiastic and with endless historical knowledge “

Loona is a first class tour guide, an excellent group facilitator and a charming person. He is inspiring,enthusiastic and with endless historical knowledge – which makes me hungry for more. We covered past history (oh so colourful…talking about the inspiration and resilience of people) and right up to the present day….Loona had a story for everything.I won’t spoil it for you by sharing too much ..just to say it really gave me an insight and food for thought.

“Head and shoulders above other tours”

From my experience Loona’s tours are head and shoulders above other tours. I will definitely be going on more tours with him and am going to enquire about a tailor made tour with him too. Julie Bennett, tour guide

“A rivetting tour guide … literally transports us in to the pages of history”

I had the privilege of going on the British Museum Highlights Tour and it was like going into a timemachine! Loona is a riveting tour guide and literally transports us into the pages of history with anecdotes, extra information and humour thrown in for good measure! His knowledge is phenomenal and so well researched that the hour and fifteen minutes fly by. He made me feel like I was actually in the museum looking at the exhibits I never thought it would be so much fun! This is a highly recommended virtual tour, complete with your own tour guide!
