City Visitor Trail
Should you wish to take a walk on your own and get to know the main attractions that London has on offer we would recommend the City Visitor Trail. The main trail is a 90-minute tour that will allow you to get to view St Paul’s Cathedral, the Bank of England Museum, Mansion House, the Monument, and much, much more. You may visit the City Information Centre that is located opposite St Paul’s Cathedral or download the app on your iPhone or Android. With a map in hand or in your phone, it is the best way to walk about at your own pace.
Sherlock Holmes 2hr Tour
If you ever wished to see the places that inspired Arthur Conan Doyle to write his masterful work of art, do not shy away from the Sherlock Holmes Tour. You begin on the street where Watson met Holmes, 221B Baker Street. Although 221B Baker Street really exists, the film and TV show housed Holmes on 187 North Gower Street, which just a moment away from Euston Road. You will even get to see Speedy’s Café! With a walk around Bloomsbury, viewers will be able to see the beauty that London has to offer.
The Harry Potter Guided Walking Tour
In this tour, you can have a fun ride on the Platform 9 ¾ trolley at King’s Cross station. But first, you start in Soho where your guide will inform you as to which House you belong in – Hufflepuff, Slytherin, Ravenclaw, or Gryffindor. Amongst other sites you may see are the Leaky Cauldron and the Ministry of Magic. Apart from the sites, you will get to learn a lot of information about the characters and actors you enjoyed in the film.
Jack the Ripper Walking Tour
By far the scariest walking tour there is in London starts around 7 30pm in Tower Hill right next to the tube station. Donald Rumbelow, who is the world’s foremost authority on Jack the Ripper, orchestrated the walk – he has been the chief consultant for every TV and film treatment of the notorious villain. A tour whose leading figure is a criminal must start near Scotland Yard and City of London Police Territory. This is one of the best walking tours in London according to the London Guide.
