Description

Starting this London tour at Borough Market, we’ll help you indulge your taste buds at the oldest food market in the nation, dating back to 1014 AD. Treat yourself to a coffee at one of London’s best cafes, which roasts its own beans, then take a wander around the market and sample the wares of cheese mongers, butchers, spice merchants, bakers and more.

We’ll also pass historic sites including the ruins of Winchester Palace, Sir Francis Drake’s “The Golden Hinde” and London Bridge, with an explanation of that famous rhyme.

We’ll then discuss the quirky history of the tube, the world’s oldest underground transit network, as we travel from Borough Market to the world-famous markets of Camden Town.

Guests will again have an opportunity to browse the stalls, talk to local sellers and perhaps purchase authentic handcrafted gifts and souvenirs.

Discover how Camden’s unique Irish heritage shaped one of London’s most exciting areas, and take a stroll along a section of Britain’s fascinating canal system. Over 2,000 miles of connected waterways crisscross the country. See some of the historical boats that once plied their trade from Liverpool to London.

Next we’ll explore Camden Stables Market, a veritable rabbit warren of stalls providing everything from vinyl records, fashion, art and music, through to vintage jewellery, books and antique furniture.

The whole tour will include amusing and unforgettable stories of London’s history and culture. Hear about Charlie Chaplin, Amy Winehouse, The Clash, The Sex Pistols, The Stranglers and even see where Pink Floyd and the Rolling Stones used to drink!

Before we go our separate ways, don’t forget to tap up your local guide for tips on what else to see, do and eat during your stay in London.
