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
2,594 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.

Helena really knew her stuff and made an effort to relate the tour to each of the people on it. I learned loads. I would definitely use Context Tours again
Sean was one of the best tour guides I've ever had. He engaged everyone no matter how old they were and was very knowledgable. Best of all, he was a lot of fun! I learned a lot (history buff, so I appreciate that) and had a great experience. I really had a great time and will do another Context tour in the future. I just wish they had more group tours in London. A lot of private tours were available.
This was a great tour with lots of historical insight. One thing that might be interesting to add would be perspective on how the people of the UK experienced the war and viewed Churchill at the time.
