Experience the art and culture of London

Highlights of London's amazing galleries and museums, guided tours inside the National Gallery, The British Museum, and Tate Britain art gallery - with time to explore off-the-tourist-trail to see the old Inns of Court with its historic courtyards, backstreet pubs, and churches.

Travel by taxis, tubes and your own two feet. Explore the city like a real Londoner with an expert private tour guide by your side. Your guide will meet you in the lobby of your hotel and conduct the tour using different modes of transport, avoid groups, and manage everything. It's the eco-friendly, exhilarating and flexible way to experience one of the world's greatest cities.

 

The National Gallery houses one of the most significant collections of European painting in the world. The design of the gallery uses natural light to illuminate the beautifully preserved pictures, helping you to appreciate the art. Over 2,300 masterpieces range from Duccio, Leonardo, Claude, Cézanne, Van Gogh, Turner, Jan Van Eyck and Monet. Your specialist art guide will make the art of the past come alive, learn about the artists' background, the politics of the time, and the meaning behind the picture, sometimes there is a coded message. Think of the National Gallery as the Instagram of the past, or Facebook for the wealthy. 

Tate Britain houses a substantial collection of artwork, including the 'Turner Bequest' which comprises 300 oil paintings and 30,000 sketches and watercolours. Often we think of 'Turner' as Britain's most revered painter, a master of light and inspiration for a future group of artists, the Impressionists. Other artists represented include William Hogarth, Henry Moore, Francis Bacon and Gainsborough. Tate Britain is a temple to the British artist of the past and present – be prepared for modern art too. 

The British Museum's Great Court is the most architecturally impressive part of the museum due to its spectacular glass and steel roof, added at the beginning of the millennium. The collection is worldwide in origin and relates to places and people from the past two million years; this is a museum that tells the stories of civilisations. The highlights tour can include The Elgin Marbles, the mummies of ancient Egypt, the Rosetta Stone, Anglo-Saxon treasure and Greek & Roman artefacts.

Explore the Inns of Court, location of law firm offices, we know it as 'legal London' and see the ancient courtyards, chapels, halls, and public houses that make this neighbourhood a filmmakers paradise.
