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 the many facets of London with Context's private and small group guided tours.

London Private and Guided Tours

We offer broad array of private and small group guided tours in London, designed to appeal to every interest. Some of our most popular tours include our Tower of London with Kids, which delves into some of the storied history of the structure with a more family-friend bent (namely, glossing over some of the more gruesome history that took place there) and a Custom London Tour with a Private Guide, in which we can create an itinerary circumscribed only by the bounds of our collective imagination. Other options 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.
What Context London Travelers Say
2,652 Reviews (4.82)

Reviews can only be left by Context customers after they have completed a tour. For more information about our reviews, please see our FAQ.

Sue was amazing guide! Though we thought we came we’ll prepared, we learned so much about the war and Churchill’s contribution from Sue. We highly recommend this tour and are most grateful to Sue for making this such a memorable experience
We had a wonderful time at Stonehenge, Salisbury, and Bath. We heard great history and local knowledge from our guide Rosemary. She was relentlessly positive and good-natured on a cold rainy day.
The tour was very informative and Sue was a pleasant and knowledgeable guide.
