London Old City Walking Tour

Discover major London landmarks on this 3-hour London Old City Tour!

ABOUT THE London Old City Walking Tour

Learn about the original London, a mere one square mile beside the river Thames. This 3-hour walking tour includes must-see sites like the Tower of London, St Paul’s Cathedral, London Bridge and much more.


The Old City tour starts in front of the Apple Store in Covent Garden and finishes by the Tower of London. 


Small streets and river walkways

When you think of London, chances are you think of a bustling city, with tall buildings and busy roads, but on this London walking tour, your expert guide will remind you that that wasn’t always the case. As you explore a maze of small streets, church courtyards and river walkways, you’ll see London in an entirely different light.

The original London

With history stretching back almost 2,000 years, your guide will bring London’s historic center to life. From the 12th Century Church of the Knights Templar, to the RAF Church and the World War II blitz, you’ll soon discover that much of London’s most fascinating history is jam-packed into one square mile.

Some of London’s most important landmarks

You’ll want to keep your camera at the ready, as you’ll discover many of London’s top highlights around every corner on this walking tour. From London Bridge to Tower Bridge, from St Paul’s Cathedral to the Tower of London, you’ll also find Mansion House, the Bank of England, the Royal Exchange and the Monument.
