Panoramic Tour of London

placeholder

For those who only have a few hours to tour London, a sightseeing tour that takes in all the highlights of central London.

A Panoramic Tour includes London's West End, the busy area of the Royal Parks and Palaces, theatres, department stores and the finest residential areas in London like Belgravia, Chelsea and Kensington.

One or two short photo stops can usually be made, depending on time and traffic conditions, e.g. to view the Thames at Westminster and Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament.

This tour also takes in Scotland Yard, No.10 Downing Street (official home of the Prime Minister), the Horse Guards, Trafalgar Square - official centre of London from where distances to and from London are measured - Piccadilly Circus, and from there into the City of London - the one square mile founded by the Romans some 2,000 years ago which is still the financial centre of the U.K.

Highlights of the City of London are St. Paul's Cathedral and the Tower of London, where there is usually time to stop for photos.

For those who have a whole day in which to see London we recommend a morning West End tour combined with an afternoon City tour.
