At the very heart of the London Duck Tours experience is our Classic Sightseeing Tour – the original tour that started it all off! Let the original London Duck tour take you around the beating heart of London – where royalty mixes with parliament and pageantry! We cover the whole kit and caboodle in this Classic Sightseeing Tour, so take a pew, sit back and enjoy – let us do the legwork!
We start with the city’s sparklingly spherical millennium landmark, the Coca-Cola London Eye, sitting proudly beside the busy and arty South Bank arts complex. Here you’ll find theatres, concert halls, galleries and eateries. Then we’ll lead you past, in our view, the best vista in the world, the awesome and ancient Houses of Parliament, Big Ben, Westminster Hall and Westminster Abbey. Round the corner and we’re at the London home the Prime Minister, number 10 Downing Street, modest from the outside, but containing a wealth of history and secrets. You will admire the dashing Household Cavalry on their horses at Horse Guards, then onto the bustling expanse of Trafalgar Square, a tribute to Britain’s greatest sailor, Lord Admiral Nelson, lined with some of the world’s best galleries – the National Gallery and National Portrait Gallery – anyone for a selfie?
Then sit back and let our chauffeur do the work as you peruse the refined roads of St James’s, with its gentleman’s clubs, historic shops where even Royalty buy their groceries, and the hotel to top them all, the hotel designed like a little piece of Versailles in London, The Ritz! Don’t forget the ancient Royal Palace that this area was named after, handily across the road from the oldest wine merchant in England, Berry Brothers and Rudd.
But still there’s more…how about the “head office” of our Royal family, Buckingham Palace itself, and then there’s the artistic hub that is Tate Britain too, not forgetting the mysterious and infamous MI5 & MI6 before the dramatic splashdown onto the Thames! You’d be just quackers to miss it!
