Short read: This is London – the Flash-Bang-Lightning Highlights Tour
Long read: Welcome to London! To the Guard Change Tour. To Buckingham Palace. To the Abbey and Big Ben. To London in Two Hours. Everything you want to see in the famous heart of London can be seen on foot in two hours. Seen better. Seen up close. Guided better. Fraction of the cost. So why go on a bus tour? Ok, maybe digging deep into your pocket and ho-hum main roads are your thing. Big, straight, obvious, busy roads – maybe they are the strokes for some folks. Then again, maybe not. You don’t “see” the English countryside by taking the motorway through it. Same goes for London. And so we come to the rem acu tetigiste moment: we go where the tourist buses can’t go. So, hey ho and off we go – off to see all the classic sights in the heart of London. Tick ’em off: the Houses of Parliament, Westminster Abbey, Buckingham Palace, St. James’s Palace, the quintessential Royal Park, classy St. James’s, the Mall, Trafalgar Square, Admiralty Arch, Birdcage Walk, Queen Anne’s Gate, you name it. They’re all here – all the London pearls. N.B. the walk ends at Trafalgar Square, on the doorstep of Charing Cross Rail and Tube Station. On Sundays it’s Steven Sz, Nick G, Aaron, Andy or Claire
HELLO LONDON! – THE PRACTICALS
Hello London! takes place every Sunday at 10 am. The meeting point is just outside exit 4 of Westminster Tube. N.B. The Changing of the Horse Guards ceremony takes place every day. It’s up close, right there, intimate. We’ll be there. The Buckingham Palace ceremony isn’t held every day. On the Wednesdays and Sundays when it is on we’ll be right there, at a carefully chosen, superb vantage point.
