What to expect

During your Big Ben to Covent Garden walking tour, your local expert guide will take you off the beaten track to discover lesser-known, authentic neighborhood gems. You'll see both well-known and discreet sights:

  • Big Ben and Parliament
  • Charming parks and and lesser-known churches near Westminster Abbey
  • Watch the queen's swans gliding idyllically through the ponds and protected bird sanctuaries among the secluded shrubberies and woodlands
  • Buckingham Palace, where you can observe if the state flag is flying overhead—an indication that the Queen is in residence
  • Westminster’s best street for shopping
  • Enjoy a quick drink at one of central London’s best rooftop bars offering a relaxed atmosphere and great panoramic views of Trafalgar Square, London Eye and Big Ben
  • Wander past the upmarket grocers frequented by the Queen (in actuality her staff) and London's most expensive restaurant, which fortunately offers slightly more affordable lunch options
  • The seemingly chaotic Piccadilly Circus, which is often compared to New York's Time Square
  • Navigate through the numerous squares and backstreets that lead to Covent Garden, with its glorious covered two-floor market surrounded by musicians and street-performers
