Experience the best of London and England with customised tours. Select from the tours below – or request your custom tour (click ‘Enquire About This Tour’).

London Photography Tour: Architecture: stunning. Landscapes: gorgeous. River Thames: atmospheric. Parks & Gardens: scenic. Skylines: soaring. History: outstanding. Expect: the unexpected. London has it covered. Price: 3-Hours = £200 (extra hours can be added).

Heathrow Layover Tour: Meet & greet in Arrivals at Heathrow, or London Paddington Station – Graham will explain the two options and prices when you enquire. For details of the London Tour see ‘London Highlights Tour‘. Please provide landing & departure times (morning landings only). Layovers should be 8-hours+ from landing to departure to safely fit in a tour x 3-hours. POA.

Stonehenge: Is a prehistoric wonder 5000 years old. Yet there are so many layers of history here and new discoveries still being made. I’ll help you separate the myths from the real stories. By the time we leave, you’ll know your neolithic from your megalithic and a disc barrow from a druid priest! The entire ‘ritual’ site is vast, predating even the famous stone circle. There is also a superb Visitor Centre exhibiting discoveries and treasures from this mysterious monument. This tour is Stonehenge alone, without Salisbury Cathedral and therefore a shorter day. Price: 7.5-hours = £460 + tickets for Stonehenge (Stonehenge + Magna Carta Tour).

Hampton Court Palace: Was built by King Henry VIII 500 years ago and is a superb example of Tudor extravagance and royal wealth. It doubled in size in the late 1600s for King William and Queen Mary, creating a royal Stuart residence of baroque opulence and grandeur. This palace overflows with royal history, intrigue..and a ghost. The Palace was renovated again for the Georgian kings and was home to three royal dynasties. Magnificent, spectacular and jam-packed with art and treasures. This tour is Hampton Court Palace alone, without the Royal London tour and therefore a shorter day. Price: 5-hours = £315 + tickets for Hampton Court Palace (Hampton Court Palace + Royal London Tour).

Winchester + Jane Austen’s House: I guide us through Winchester Cathedral where amongst its superb architecture and history, stretching back over 1000-years, we’ll also see Jane Austen’s grave and memorial. The house where Jane Austen died in Winchester is a part of my walk through the city. This tour includes the Chawton cottage/museum where Jane Austen lived and wrote for the last ten years of her life. Jane Austen’s House in Chawton is open June – September and on selected days October – May. Price: 10-hours = £660 + tickets for Winchester Cathedral and Jane Austen’s House (Winchester Day Trip).

Stratford-upon-Avon + Kenilworth Castle: Stratford is all about William Shakespeare. His birthplace, home base and burial space are all on my walking tour. We’ll stroll through the old town discovering the Shakespeare presence as we explore. Kenilworth Castle is a superb ruin dating back to the 12th century. The castle expanded into a royal palace until its destruction in the 1600s, becoming much reduced until it inspired the 19th century romantics. This is what a castle is meant to look like! Kenilworth is an alternative to Oxford. Price: 10-hours = £660 + tickets for Kenilworth (Oxford & Stratford-Upon-Avon Tour).

Hever Castle and Chartwell: A day out in lovely Kent where we visit the Tudor residence of Anne Boleyn (second wife of Henry VIII; beheaded) and the secluded home of Winston Churchill. These historic attractions are very different yet both are architecturally unique, have beautiful gardens and superb exhibitions inside. Price: 10-hours = £660 + tickets.

Glastonbury: Where to start? Is it the mythical Isle of Avalon? King Arthur’s resting place? It is most definitely ancient. The incredible ruins of the medieval Abbey, the Chalice Well and the town’s many fine pubs and ‘mystical’ shops are all worth visiting. On a good day Glastonbury Tor is a must-climb for the views and shear exhilaration. Glastonbury is too much of a trip for one day and would need to be combined with other tours on an overnighter (see below). POA.

Overnight/2-Day Trips: Combine two of the following tours for an overnight/2-day trip: Stonehenge | Oxford | Winchester | Mystical England | Stratford-upon-Avon | Kenilworth Castle | Bath | Cotswolds | Glastonbury. Start and end in London from your hotel/accommodation (Mon – Fri). Graham will recommend hotel location, which depends on the tour combination selected. Hotel accommodation not included in tour price. POA.
