London Private Tours and London Small Group Tours

London Private and Small Group Guided Tours

Both medieval and modernist, London is a world capital that defies classification.
From ancient Roman ruins to Norman architecture, London is littered with reminders of its past. Landmarks like the Tower of London, St Paul's Cathedral, and Westminster Abbey, once the glory of medieval monarchy and now the setting for coronations, offer a peek into the city's long, often turbulent, history and rise to prominence. At the same time, contemporary structures like the Shard and the Millennium Bridge highlight London's evolution into a cutting-edge world capital. Its culturally vibrant immigrant neighborhoods and acclaimed literary, theater, and art worlds, personified by Shakespeare's Globe Theater and the Tate Modern, also form a portrait of an endlessly inventive city. Experience its many facets with Context's London private tours and London small group tours.

London Private Tours and London Small Group Tours

We offer broad array of London private tours and London small group tours, designed to appeal to every interest. Some of our most popular London guided tours include our Tower of London with Kids, which delves into some of the storied history of the structure with a more family-friend approach (namely, glossing over some of the more gruesome history that took place there), or our Westminster Abbey tour which explores over one thousand years of British history. Or, our London private guides are ready to put together a Custom London Tour, in which we can create an itinerary circumscribed only by the bounds of our collective imagination. Other London tours include a Shakespeare Tour, in which we immerse ourselves in the Bard's London and learn more about the history of this mysterious figure, our introductory London City Tour, perfect for first-time visitors, and our Learn about Royal London Tour with a history professor, a full-day experience in which we enmesh ourselves in the monarchy, from Westminster Abbey to Kensington Palace.

Our time at the British Museum with Alan was a highlight of our trip! His background in Classics and Art made him a perfect tour guide, and the three hours flew by, as he shared all sorts of anecdotes with us. The British Museum is so enormous, and we knew it'd be helpful to have someone show us some of it. Although we'd signed up for a small group tour, our family of 3 was solo with Alan. He also did a great job of engaging our 14-year-old who loves history. Fabulous tour with Alan!
Wow! We had the most fabulous day with Imogen! Context has always been terrific (we took two Context tours in Paris in 2018), and this tour was a perfect way to start off our vacation. We wanted to do this on our first full day in London, but as it was a Saturday, Westminster Abbey wasn't possible. So Context worked with us to create an ideal itinerary which started at the Tower of London and finished with the Churchill War Rooms. From the first moment, Imogen was friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. She helped us get our Oyster cards for the tube, and made sure our history-buff 14-year-old was engaged the whole time. Throughout the day, she gave us options in terms of our itinerary (walk or take the bus? Where should we have lunch?) She was so interesting and enthusiastic, and we really enjoyed spending the day with her. It set us up for a tremendous week in London. Thank you, Imogen!
Sarah was a wonderful guide - extremely knowledgeable, witty & charming. She made the (bloody) history come alive and gave us a great insight into British past and present. Highly recommendable!
