Originally an island above the Thames marshes, Westminster has so much history crammed in one area that you’ll be struggling to keep up without your private driver-guide.

This short tour is a fast-paced experience that will take you around the most popular highlights of the city of Westminster.

You will discover famous memorials, Westminster Abbey where Royal coronations and burials take place, Whitehall: the heartbeat of the British government, No. 10 Downing Street, and see the most-photographed, most-recognised and most-loved London landmarks that you will tick off your entire London-essentials list.

Feel the buzz of Trafalgar Square and the National Gallery, the elegance of St. James’s Park, and the glamour of Buckingham Palace. You will find broad boulevards and incredible views that portray the perfect backdrop for the pomp and pageantry of royal occasions.

Discover Piccadilly Circus, the London Eye, the River Thames, Hyde Park, Albert Hall and even Harrods. You will also see UNESCO World Heritage and 2 Tudor Palaces in an action-packed 2-hour itinerary.

The theme for this tour is fully customisable. Choose from British Monarchy’s Royal Palaces to Pomp and Ceremony to UK Parliament and Brexit to Winston Churchill’s Darkest Hour in World War Two.

Family Traveller

We cannot recommend BCHT enough!! We had a brilliant tour and a brilliant driver, Paul Murphy. He was professional, friendly, helpful and incredibly knowledgeable. The amount of information he gave us was unbelievable and extremely interesting. We saw all the major sights as promised but so much more as well. Nothing was too much trouble either as he was happy to wait whilst we took photos and we were never rushed. The complementary water was a nice touch too. We really had a fantastic and memorable day and it’s even inspired us to visit some London sights that Paul pointed out when our family are next visiting from Scotland!

NB. My initial enquiry via the website was followed up by Rob Woodford who was also great with prompt and efficient email responses.

We hope business returns to normal soon for you all.

Many thanks

My fiancée and I did this tour with Dave as our guide, and it was excellent. Dave is an informative and personable guide, whose fund of knowledge and anecdote made the tour highly enjoyable. Dave was able to accommodate our needs for photo stops and even took photos of the two of us together for us, and brought us home on a route that enabled us to see even more of London’s historic sites. The tour took us to all the major tourist attractions of Westminster and I highly recommend it.

We were in London taking this great tour exactly one year ago today. Miss it – it was excellent. Great service by a very knowledgeable driver. We saw so much more of London than we could have on our own. I can’t wait until we can return and take a different one of their tours. Highly recommend to visitors – take this on your first full day in town, it’s a great way to see the sights while dealing with jet lag.
