London has been a draw for American visitors ever since the first emigrants left for the new world in the early 17th century, so where do you start with events and people spanning around 500 years of modern US history? Do you trace the story of a native American princess, the movers and shakers in pre-revolution America where anyone who was anyone made a beeline for London, or the opposing spy networks in England working for both sides in the American civil war. Or do you opt for the modern-day US icons from politics, rock music and film who took a shine to London? And that’s just Anglo-American history.
London’s own history reaches back at least 2,000 years to the Romans’ ancient capital of Londinium and beyond. The scope is huge but our wide knowledge of the city means we can tailor our personalisd tours to suit your particular interests, mixing and matching American with English attractions such as Buckingham Palace, Westminster Abbey, Trafalgar Square and Harrods with a host of other sites that make up the complex history and life of the British capital.
We can offer themed or geographical tours; or you can specify exactly when, where and how you want to use your time with us, identifying landmarks, personalities or arts, cultural and sporting events you wish to visit or follow up.
