City of London Tour

Offered as a private hire or when special events/road closures divert us away from our original Westminster route.

It’s a bus on the land, a boat in the river and now it’s your very own yellow time machine! Let London Duck Tours be your guide as you take the City of London Tour around the original London, or Londinium, as the Romans named it over 2000 years ago. An ancient city with layer upon layer of history, drama and world renowned landmarks! An ever changing metropolis with sky scraping office blocks and secret underground treasures.

Waterloo before sunset, anyone? To start we’ll give you one of the best views in London – the majestic sweep of the Thames as seen from Waterloo Bridge. Then we’ll whisk you past Covent Garden and along the elegant thoroughfare of Fleet Street, birthplace of British journalism, the Royal Courts of Justice and home of the infamous demon barber Sweeney Todd! Then we’ll waddle up Ludgate Hill to Wren’s magnificent domed masterpiece St Paul’s Cathedral.   This is the heart of the old city where fire and finance rub shoulders: the Great Fire of London started here in 1666, standing right beside the classical grandeur of the Bank of England and Royal Exchange, where Bankers have traded and schemed for centuries.

And then over London Bridge into Southwark, once notorious as a haven for theatre, vice and general after hours naughtiness!  This is the old stomping ground of the Great Bard himself, William Shakespeare, and the location of some of Dickens most famous works!  Admire the mighty Tower Bridge and HMS Belfast before heading past the Imperial War Museum to James Bond’s HQ, MI6 for our famous Splashdown….because as you know, nobody does it better than London Duck Tours!
