Top London sights
Let me take you on a private tour of some of the world’s greatest civilisations - Egyptian, Roman, Greek and Assyrian. Then see some of most spectacular archaeological discoveries from ancient and medieval Britain.
Churchill War Rooms
Below Westminster’s streets lie a series of underground rooms where Churchill and his department organised the Second World War campaign. Much of it is untouched - it’s as if they’ve just popped out.
A palace to kings and queens from the 17th century, the birthplace of Queen Victoria and home to modern-day royals. Step back in time to learn about life in Georgian England and the first years of Victoria.
Over 2,000 paintings on show, spanning over 600 years of art, from the 1300 to 1900. Leonardo da Vinci, Holbein, Raphael, Titian, van Dyck, Rembrandt, Vermeer, Velazquez, Constable, Turner, Pissarro, Renoir, Monet - and many more.
St Paul’s Cathedral
A masterpiece of baroque splendour by architect Christopher Wren. Its 1400 years of history have seen the funerals of British heroes and the wedding of Prince Charles and Lady Diana Spencer. Climb its 528 steps for a spectacular view.
Less well-known than its Modern namesake, as the name suggests, this gallery houses the very best of British art, from 1600. The Turner Bequest holds a fine collection of JMW Turner paintings but there are many other masterpieces to enjoy.
Tower of London
Palace, fortress, place of torture and execution; a home to Yeoman Wardens, ravens and the Crown Jewels. Let me tell you tales of grisly executions, animal adventures, daring escapes and ghostly encounters.
Victoria & Albert Museum
Its maze-like rooms house the very best in decorative arts and design from across the world and the centuries. Let me guide you around some of the many highlights before we relax in a very grand tearoom.
Where royalty and religion have come together for a 1,000 years. 40 kings and queens have been crowned here, several are buried here, along with famous Britons, including Charles Dickens, Isaac Newton and Charles Darwin.
