LONDON'S SECRETS - As the title says this is a family fun tour of seeing the Sights and Secrets of London and you will not be disappointed. During your tour you will visit buildings that are over 300 years old and we will take you inside so you can see the wonders of these historic places. Why not visit a pub that sells corpses, see a house with false windows, a Roman Bath, a 500 year old Banqueting Hall., Winston Churchill's cigar chair. Have a photograph standing under a 200 year old original gas lamp, visit a Dead house. Did we mention secret Alleyways. Roman Landmarks, an Execution Dock. Then there are the alleyways and courtyards that time has forgotten. Stand in the smallest square in London. See the entrance to secret passages and of course visit prison cells 900 years old. Actually walk on a Roman pavement. This list of places to see is endless. We would tell you more, but it's a secret! There is the option on the tour to visit inside certain landmarks  and some do have a small entry fee.

We also said that you will see Hidden Treasures and unusual places not seen by many tourists! See and hear about many of London's Hidden Treasures, these are the places that tourists never get to see. We shall wander alleyways and hear the tales of murder and mystery. See the smallest house in London, the smallest square in town, wander by the site of Henry VIII's cow shed and tennis court. We have 300 year old shops to enter and once you know their history you may wish to purchase  some of their stock. There are Hidden Tunnels, the oldest Church in London, Victorian Book shops, Visit a shop where you can see a river running under it.  Did we mention secret alleyways. Visit a church that sold corpses and a dead body that still sits around a table at meetings. What about London smallest police station 10 foot wide for the kids to have a picture by the side or the tallest telephone box in the world. Feeling thirsty from all of this, well lets stop in the smallest pub in London, or better still have some water from the very first water fountain in London or see a 1000 year old well.Then there is our special medieval building, in the heart of London, that we have permission to take you inside to explore. (Not open weekends) Find out how a London underground train ended up on top of a building. See the site of the only animal that had a mini state funeral and is there really a state of a boy sitting on a loaf of bread in London. Remember, this is your tour so we will tailor make it to your wishes and complete the tour at your pace.This tour takes you to both the landmark sites of London and the unusual.
