I am founder of the Pigeon Tours Company and a qualified City of Westminster tour guide. I am passionate about history and would love to share inspirational stories with people.

I will collect you from your hotel in the morning. You will then move on to explore the Royal Albert Hall and Albert Memorial. Let yourself be taken back to XIX century, which was one of the most important and exciting in British history. It was known as the 'Victorian period', when arts, science and industry had the opportunity to flourish. From here you will take a ride to the Royal parks and hear more about London’s fascinating history. You will discover why there are no flowers in Green Park, and view the area where Henry VIII would hunt for deer, and bed his mistresses.
I will take you to the Westminster Abbey, the coronation venue for all British monarchs. You will also take a walk around Parliament and the iconic Big Ben. From here you will drive to Trafalgar square and see fascinating sculpted lions and discover why they are referred to as "hybrid". Explore the oldest royal park with me, before being shown the spectacular Buckingham Palace. You can also have a guess as to whether the Queen is at home enjoying some of her favourite English tea and biscuits!
Having enjoyed the City of Westminster, you will then head through Central London and it's Financial district, finishing up at the Tower of London.
The tour will then come to a close, and we'll safely escort you back to your hotel.
Collections from/to the airports are available upon request.
