What makes this tour special

Your experience

There are few things more alluring to the eye than the shimmer and sparkle of a Diamond. So much so that numerous wars have been fought, fortunes have been spent and loves has been lost, or regained, all through the magic of diamonds. This has all meant that diamonds spend the majority of their time locked in safes or behind bulletproof glass.  We have tried to overcome this and allow visitors to the UK to get up close and personal with diamonds and other gems. This is why we have curated an experience with a diamond expert at the world famous Hatton Gardens that will get you behind the scenes access to this sparkling industry. You will have the chance to peer inside where diamonds are traded, mounted onto rings and designed into bespoke jewellery. Moreover, you will have an experience that most could only dream of whilst visiting London.
