Discover the real history of power, politics, and monarchy in London on this express two-hour private tour of iconic London landmarks with an expert Cabbie who not only knows London like the back of their hand but is also a historian... with many royal and historic secrets to share with you!  

Whether you are interested in the British monarchy's royal palaces or the historic UK Parliament based at Westminster for over 1000 years, your expert guide is more than happy to spill all the gossip, alongside the history of any topic which may interest you. 

Hear about the Second World War, the Blitz and Churchill's magnificent speeches; or more historically Guy Fawkes and the Gunpowder Plot to blow up Parliament. Hear about King Charles I at Banqueting House, and his beheading at the Palace of Westminster. 

Learn about the secret tunnels beneath the streets of London used to protect the royals during turbulent times, and how democracy and Constitutional Monarchy work in the UK with the two Houses of Parliament: the House of Lords and the House of Commons. Find out about the drunken sailors that brought back the body of naval Hero Horatio Nelson, who stands proudly atop Nelson's column. 

Learn about the ancient coronation rituals that have been taking place at Westminster Abbey since William the Conqueror on Christmas Day 1066 up to the late Queen Elizabeth II in 1952 and King Charles III. Admire the awe-inspiring Gothic architecture of the Abbey that has stood the test of time for over 1000 years. 

Your guide is ready to discuss anything you throw their way - including filming locations for Harry Potter, James Bond, and Downton Abbey, among many others. In short, for any curiosity, you may have about London today and British history as a whole, you're in great hands!
