Day Tours in London

Here are brief descriptions of the sort of tours I am normally asked to do in London

Travelling by private car allows complete flexibility, with itineraries to suit you.
In London
London - Half day (up to 4 hours)
Panoramic Tour -
An introduction to London showing you all the main sights.
The West End is where we spend our money (or it is spent for us) with, for instance, the Houses of Parliament, Trafalgar Square, Piccadilly Circus, Soho, Covent Garden, the theatre and shopping districts, museums, Hyde Park, Kensington Gardens, Westminster Abbey, the London Eye, Whitehall, Downing Street, Harrods, Mayfair, the River Thames, Buckingham Palace, etc. etc.
City of London is the business district. Founded by the Romans and still around the same size and with the same purpose - making money. This is where we can see the traditional sights, including Fleet Street, the Law Courts, St. Paul's Cathedral, the Bank of England, London Bridge and The Tower of London. As well as the Gherkin, the Cheese-grater, the Walkie-talkie and the Shard.
One Interior Visit
You may decide to make an interior visit to, say Westminster Abbey or The Tower of London and we will still be able to see some of the main sights.
Changing the Guard at Buckingham PalaceThe City of London skyline - dominated by St Paul's Cathedral, Tower 42 and The Gherkin.

London - Full day (up to 8 hours)
Combining the panoramic overview with two (or three) interior visits.
This will give you an insight into aspects of British heritage, history and personalities that will enhance your enjoyment of other tours.
Westminster Abbey - a House of Kings, where kings and queens have been crowned since 1066 and where many of them are buried. It contains also memorials to the great and the good - those who have influenced our lives - many of whom are household names. Recent years have seen the funeral of Diana Princess of Wales and the wedding of Prince William to Catherine Middleton, now the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
St. Paul's Cathedral - Christopher Wren's baroque masterpiece has been a familiar feature of the London skyline for 300 years. It is the seat of the Bishop of London and where we honour a bury our heroes. Having survived the Blitz it became a symbol of London's defiance in World War II.
The Tower of London - a royal palace and fortress since William the Conquerer . . and prison. Where absolute monarchs lived and their powerful enemies were incarcerated (and often eliminated). Power struggles were determined and dynasties secured with ruthless efficiency (and the axe). We will see Beefeaters and ravens and marvel at the stunning beauty of the crown jewels, which includes a diamond that weighs 530 carats.
